Intermedia Bullish on Egenera and Dell

First Dell / PAN System Trial Earns High Praise

MARLBORO, MA--(Marketwire - December 16, 2008) - Egenera, Inc. today announced Intermedia, a leading provider of collaboration and productivity Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions, has completed a proof of concept (POC) implementation of the Dell™ / PAN System designed by Egenera®. Intermedia's POC used the Dell / PAN solution to quickly deploy and remotely manage servers for a dynamically expanding user base and workload.

New York-based Intermedia provides enterprise-grade, hosted IT solutions such as Microsoft Exchange, to the small and medium business market. To offer enterprise-grade solutions with industry leading Service Level Agreements at an affordable price, the company is investing in products that ensure high-availability, flexibility, and provide rapid recovery through improved data center efficiency. The POC was used to test "pods" of 30 pre-configured servers that are used to deploy new infrastructure within Intermedia Data Centers.. The Dell / PAN solution allows Intermedia to remotely manage and re-provision servers for rapid deployment, consolidate fiber and network connections, and simplify controllers and proxy, all through one centralized management tool.

"We are impressed by the simplicity of design and rapid redeployment provided by the Dell / PAN solution," said Brent Rich, Director of Technical Operations at Intermedia. "Previously, our staff had to travel to one of our remote data centers to perform each new server installation for deployment. We are now able to leverage cost effective onsite data center technicians to remotely provision, deploy, and manage these same activities, saving time and significantly shortening the deployment process. The POC demonstrated the flexibility and value of this solution and our future path lies with PAN Manager® Software by Egenera® and Dell."
