Vision Solutions Announces PowerPack for POWER7 Migration

Combines Latest Technologies to Protect and Enhance IBM i and AIX Environments

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - March 1, 2010) -  Vision Solutions, a leading high availability and disaster recovery solutions provider in IBM Power Systems markets, today announced the availability of a new Vision PowerPack™ for POWER7 Migration. This exclusive offering combines Vision Solutions software with the latest IBM POWER7 technologies to deliver cost-effective, turn-key solutions supporting virtualized, energy efficient and highly resilient nonstop operations.

Vision Solutions' exclusive Information Availability Institute research indicates approximately half of the respondents intend to upgrade to IBM's Power Systems platform (lack of time is one of the concerns cited by those not currently upgrading). Vision's PowerPack for POWER7 Migration is designed to eliminate these hurdles, enabling customers to migrate to POWER7 with minimal downtime.

"This new offering provides valuable protection in a nonstop world by addressing any migration concerns customers have while enhancing the resilience of their Power Systems environments," says Vision Solutions' Senior Vice President of Marketing, Edward Vesely. "Our new migration PowerPack extends IBM's POWER7 offerings by migrating and protecting critical systems for organizations of all sizes, especially mid-market to large companies."

By combining complementary hardware and software technologies, the migration offer enables customers to benefit from IBM's new platform. Vision Solutions' cost-effective technology virtually eliminates the enormous downtime traditionally associated with system upgrades and migrations.

"The new POWER7 system represents a true leap forward in minimizing complexity, reducing energy consumption and other operational costs," says IBM's Vice President of ISV Solutions, Systems & Technology Group, Stephanie Carmel. "Designed to provide four times the performance in the same energy envelope as POWER6, the POWER7 delivers unprecedented performance for both transactional and throughput computing."

Market requirements for the PowerPack offerings were developed with a growing list of customers implementing IBM and Vision's integrated availability solutions.
