Lifeboat Distribution Offers New Virtual Iron and DataCore Virtualization Solution Bundle

DataCore and Virtual Iron "Bundle" Available Through Software Distributor Lifeboat

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - March 2, 2009) - DataCore Software, the leading provider of storage virtualization, business continuity and disaster recovery software solutions, and Virtual Iron Software, Inc., a provider of enterprise-class server virtualization and virtual infrastructure management software, today announced that distributor Lifeboat Distribution has unveiled a new promotion for their resellers when they purchase DataCore and Virtual Iron licenses together. Lifeboat will provide their resellers with additional margin and marketing support for selling the new bundle. Lifeboat Distribution is an international specialty software distributor for virtualization and other technically sophisticated products. For more details, resellers should contact datacore@lifeboatdistribution.com.

Resellers now have more cost-effective alternative

Services and solutions provider TelosIT, Inc. already delivers solutions that combine DataCore with Virtual Iron. "Lifeboat's decision to offer additional margin for using DataCore in conjunction with Virtual Iron is something we will leverage," said Kevin Carlson, CTO, TelosIT. "This represents a very cost-effective option for resellers and the resellers taking advantage of this opportunity will soon see just what high performance solutions are possible when combining these two robust offerings."

The DataCore and Virtual Iron combination benefits customers -- virtual storage and virtual servers go hand-in-hand

Solutions provider TelosIT has already enabled Matrix Design Group, an award-winning interdisciplinary firm providing professional engineering consulting, including program management and client representation, for both the private and public sectors, to expand capacity and achieve dual-site data redundancy, while saving tens of thousands on lease renewals on its previous generation SAN with DataCore and Virtual Iron. "With DataCore and Virtual Iron in place both administration and management were simplified greatly and I was able to further reduce my IT spending," said Eric W. Smith, vice president, Matrix Design Group.
