Marathon to Offer InMage's DR-Scout Solution to Customers Worldwide

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - July 1, 2008) - InMage Systems®, Inc. (www.inmage.net), a leading provider of disaster recovery and business continuity software, today announced a partnership with Marathon Technologies, the only provider of fault-tolerant, high availability software for physical and virtual servers. Marathon will offer InMage's flagship DR-Scout solution to its customer base, which represents over 1800 customers in 34 countries and includes over 1100 companies in the rapidly growing midsize market. Marathon representatives will be fully trained in sales, service and support for DR-Scout.

The combination of DR-Scout with Marathon's everRun® line of products results in the highest levels of availability and protection for applications, data and networks in physical and virtual server environments, and across geographically dispersed or remote locations. Both products have been fully tested and work together seamlessly to prevent data and employee productivity losses that result from system failures, outages and disasters.

"Over 1800 companies and organizations around the globe use Marathon's everRun software to prevent outages and data loss without IT intervention," said Gary R. Phillips, president and CEO, Marathon Technologies. "InMage complements everRun by providing advanced disaster recovery and continuous data protection capabilities. Today's businesses require the remote DR features and more efficient, event-based recovery offered by DR-Scout. By adding DR-Scout to their infrastructures, customers can build upon the uninterrupted availability and rapid recovery provided by everRun."

"This alliance with Marathon fulfills a market need," said Robert Sandie, executive vice president of corporate development, InMage Systems. "We have combined our respective talents, engineering and expertise to provide organizations with a platform for high availability and disaster recovery. By working together toward the common goals of maximizing data integrity, productivity and return-on-investment for our customers, we can assure them of a truly successful IT implementation."

DR-Scout provides continuous data protection (CDP) at the local data center level and remote sites for efficient operational and remote disaster recovery. Using a simple, centralized process, IT staff can recover to any predetermined business event or any point in time, within any storage environment. Lost or deleted files and mailboxes that once took days to recover only take minutes or seconds with DR-Scout, resulting in near zero data recovery point (RPO) and recovery time (RTO) objectives. Push button failover for leading applications such as Microsoft Exchange and SQL, SharePoint, Oracle, BlackBerry Server and SAP is offered. DR-Scout supports Windows, Linux and Unix operating systems as well as various virtualization platforms and interoperability among all popular storage architectures.

Marathon's everRun suite of high availability software prevents outages and data loss -- without IT intervention -- in Microsoft Windows Server and Citrix XenServer infrastructures. everRun VM is the world's first fault-tolerant, high availability software for server virtualization. With the release of everRun VM, Marathon eliminated one of the major barriers to broader server virtualization adoption and provided customers with protection of critical data, networks and applications in virtual server environments. Marathon's everRun HA and everRun FT product lines address high availability for single Windows applications.
