OpSource Partners With PacTec to Distribute Its Leading Cloud Operation Solutions in Australia and New Zealand

Early Adopters in Tech-Savvy Region Ready to Move to Cloud Computing

SANTA CLARA, CA and BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - October 7, 2009) - OpSource, Inc., the leader in Cloud operations, today announced a strategic partnership with leading APAC consultancy firm Pacific Technology Group Pty Ltd ("PacTec") to represent its technology solutions in Australia and New Zealand. With two of the highest technology and broadband penetration rates in the world, enterprises in these traditionally early adopter countries are likely to move quickly to Cloud computing solutions such as OpSource Cloud™, the first Cloud to bring together the availability, flexibility and community of the public Cloud with the security, performance and control the enterprise requires.

"We are excited to bring OpSource's leading solutions to our clients in Australia and New Zealand," said Scott Wilkie, director, PacTec. "There has been a great deal of talk in our markets about SaaS and Cloud opportunities, however the solutions themselves have remained elusive. I believe our partnership with OpSource will bring the innovation, flexibility and productivity that the Pacific markets are seeking."

In addition to OpSource Cloud, PacTec will offer the complete OpSource product line including the award-winning OpSource On-Demand, which empowers SaaS ISVs to bring the Cloud to the enterprise by quickly and securely delivering their applications and services over the Web. Going far beyond full-featured managed hosting, the comprehensive, award-winning Cloud operations solution includes the application management, compliance and business services that are necessary for on-demand business success. PacTec will also represent OpSource Billing CLM™, a self-service, flexible and secure solution for SaaS and Web customer on-boarding, subscription management and payment processing.

"The advent of widespread Cloud adoption will mark a major shift in enterprise computing as we know it," said Treb Ryan, CEO, OpSource. "We are pleased to work with PacTec to empower innovative companies in these key early adopter countries to help change the way enterprises consume technology."
