Marathon Technologies Now Part of NASA SEWP and GWAC Schedules Through Partnership With Knight Point Systems

Demand for Continuity of Operations Software Drives Growth for Marathon in Federal Market

LITTLETON, MA--(Marketwire - July 11, 2007) - Marathon Technologies Corporation, the leading provider of automated, fault tolerant-class availability solutions for virtual and physical environments, today announced its placement on the NASA Solutions for Enterprise Wide Procurement (SEWP) and Government-Wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC) schedules. This is made possible through a strategic partnership with Knight Point Systems, a Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Business (SDVOSB) delivering data center-centric products and services to the federal government and commercial enterprises.

The partnership with Knight Point further strengthens Marathon's commitment to the federal market by delivering fault tolerant-class availability solutions to government agencies that meet the strict demands of the Continuity of Operations (COOP) initiative. In the event of any disruption, COOP directives mandate that government agencies protect the availability of critical agency applications; give agency employees access to critical applications; safeguard vital citizen records and agency information, and provide for collection of taxes and fees.

"Government agencies understand the inherent risk of downtime and are looking to solutions that meet the COOP directives," said Doug Duenkel, chief operating officer of Knight Point Systems. "We are pleased to offer Marathon's everRun software through the NASA SEWP and GWAC schedules because their solutions offer a simple and more cost-effective option for developing a COOP availability infrastructure that is ready for both major disasters and day-to-day system disruptions."
