IT Structures Lets Companies 'Test Drive' Oracle 11g in Seconds

Cloud-Based Service Facilitates Demos and Remote 'Proofs of Concept' for Oracle's Newest Release, Cisco and Others

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - October 13, 2009) - IT Structures (http://www.ITStructures.com/learnmore) today announced its support for Oracle's newest product, Oracle 11g, by offering companies the ability to 'try before they buy.' With IT Structures' cloud-based service, companies can try out any software they choose -- even the most difficult to install products like Oracle -- in a matter of seconds. Fueled by technology innovation and partnerships with industry giants, IT Structures represents a quantum leap for any company that wants to conduct remote Proofs of Concept (PoC), serve more customers, accelerate sales and invest in fewer assets.

With Oracle's latest release of Oracle 11g, the company has tuned its database to improve performance and availability in an effort to help customers lower the cost of their data infrastructure. IT Structures aligns with the company's mission by helping Oracle customers -- and potential customers -- save time, money and resources with the ability to leverage SaaS, virtualization and cloud technologies.

"IT Structures handled all the heavy lifting and we were running Oracle 11g thirty seconds later. With nothing to install, the product alleviated all the challenges and headaches typically associated with demoing software locally," said Andrey Abramov, Director of Sales Engineering at WiFiCommute. "In addition to being able to test drive software before we invest, IT Structures also helps my sales engineers to provide demos of my products more easily, meaning each rep can serve more customers and achieve higher close rates."

IT Structures' patent-pending approach goes beyond basic webinar or virtual lab offerings by letting customers instantly create production-grade replicas of their existing IT infrastructure, delivering environments on-demand via a cloud-based SaaS platform. The ability to replicate and share entire, complex and fully featured enterprise environments in the cloud has attracted customers like Cisco, VMware and Websense, who are using IT Structures to support their demo, PoC and training needs for direct and channel sales.

"Our technology was built to handle the most challenging software and appliances in cloud-based enterprise environments. Being able to run Oracle, Cisco and other production-grade software in complex network topologies reassures our customers they can rely on IT Structures when considering new software on any scale -- and when they're ready to provide demos and PoCs of their own technologies," said Zvi Guterman, CEO of IT Structures.
