Open Technologies Becomes Actifio Partner Program Member to Provide Dynamic Data Management Virtualization Solutions

Next-Generation Data Protection Solutions From Actifio Now Offered by Open Technologies to Simplify Data Management and Dramatically Reduce Costs for Customers

DES MOINES, IA--(Marketwire - January 18, 2011) - Open Technologies, Inc., a leading IT services and solution provider for the central United States, today announced that Open Technologies has been named an authorized Actifio partner as part of the Actifio Partner Program. Open Technologies will add Actifio's software suite, including Actifio™ DP, for data protection, Actifio™ DR, for disaster recovery and Actifio™ BC, for business continuity, to its list of technology solutions for customers seeking data protection, disaster recovery and business continuity solutions at lower cost points than were previously available. The Actifio solutions provide a single solution for physical environments and VMware virtualized environments including VMware SRM.

"Many of today's enterprises -- both large and small -- have silos of data management applications with a range of disparate tools and infrastructure to manage them," said Jay Lorenzen, Open Technologies. "Actifio's data management virtualization technology enables us to either transform these silos into a single, simple virtualized offering or solve a single data protection problem rather than deploying yet another independent silo. All the solutions yield lower cost and ease of use throughout the entire data lifecycle. We are thrilled to add Actifio solutions to our product portfolio for our customers."

"The deep expertise Open Technologies has in data protection, disaster recovery and business continuity make them a perfect partner for delivering Actifio Data Management Virtualization solutions," said Ash Ashutosh, CEO, Actifio. "Their experience and customer reach throughout the central United States region make Open Technologies an ideal partner as we continue to expand our footprint in North America. We are pleased to have them as an authorized reseller."

The partner program also delivers a comprehensive partner platform for a range of marketing programs designed to drive long term partner success through innovative marketing and financial incentives.
