Virt2go Helps Companies Leverage Virtualization Mega Trend

ATLANTA, GA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 5, 2007 -- A new company, Virt2go Inc., launched today with the intent of providing services and technology that help companies raise productivity and cut operating expenditures by virtualizing their Workspace, Workplace and Workforce. Virt2go's focus is to help small to large businesses strategically plan, implement and benefit from the advantages of this technological mega trend.

Virt2go gathers its expertise from a world-class management team headed by CEO Bentley Radcliff. Over the past 10 years as CEO of CompeteNet, Inc., an e-learning and simulation company, Bentley provided innovative technology and programs to Fortune 500 companies worldwide such as IBM, HP, EDS, Xerox, and Unisys.

Virtualization is the act of conducting business, learning and social networking over the web. For businesses, it removes many daily work operations from the limitations of traditional "brick and mortar" office locations, while enabling them to initiate new processes and services that can provide dramatic competitive advantages. Common applications of virtualization span telecommunications, teleconferencing and file-sharing, with benefits including reductions in operating expenses and greater effectiveness and productivity of the workforce. The power of virtualization is already apparent in the social marketplace (2nd Life, Kaneva, MySpace, Facebook, etc.).

"Virtualization enables companies to reduce costs, relieve commuter stress and increase overall quality of life while utilizing world-class resources. We believe it will generate massive business opportunities," said Radcliff, who sees this as a burgeoning business model for the twenty-first century and beyond. "Our objective is to prepare companies to be at the forefront of this rising global trend."

Virt2go launches with multiple products and existing contracts. Its flagship "Virtual Specialist" solution is an online interactive experience that helps companies sell new products with strong value messages specific to the needs of clients and prospects. According to Radcliff, "This is how you exponentially expand your workforce without the cost of hiring or training personnel."

Other services that Virt2go provides include consulting, communications and practical implementations of virtualization. Presently, Virt2go is engaged in a series of executive forums about virtualizing the PC infrastructure. Focused specifically on the workspace, these seminars help businesses to understand their options in the increasingly complex PC market. (This is complemented by a white paper available for download at www.virt2go.com.)

Virt2go also offers managed hosting solutions that drive down the complexity and costs of operating your own data center. Over the next six months, Virt2go is opening a technology discovery center for small businesses to start testing the benefits of virtualization. At the center, businesses will experience the power of outsourced computing resources (including the desktop PC) firsthand, while also leveraging technological advantages previously available only to large enterprises and corporations.
