Vision Solutions Experiences Robust Growth in the Middle East Region

Growth Spurred by Strong Demand for Resiliency Solutions That Protect Physical and Virtual Environments

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - December 9, 2010) - Vision Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of information availability software and services for Windows, Linux, IBM Power Systems and Cloud Computing markets, is pleased to announce continued strong growth in the Middle East region as revenue increased more than 20% for the third consecutive year.

"Major shifts are underway as businesses of all sizes deploy virtualization and cloud infrastructures to improve business performance. As businesses adopt these infrastructures, our research indicates they're also shifting from tape backup to more efficient and flexible technologies -- software replication, software replication plus failover, and CDP -- to protect their systems. These large demand shifts continue to drive our business forward in the Middle East and all regions," says Vision Solutions' Senior Vice President of Marketing and Business Development, Ed Vesely.

Through solid relationships with business partners such as Gulf Business Systems, located in the United Arab Emirates, Vision Solutions has delivered high availability and disaster recovery solutions to the Middle East for more than a decade. The reputation of the MIMIX solution is flawless and many of the original customers have built their strong infrastructure on the reliability and convenience of Vision's products, taking advantage of the many other product benefits such as automated data replication across different databases and migrating servers while the users are active.

"Vision Solutions' record growth in the Middle East region is based on a combination of excellent solutions with an accomplished sales and services team," said Mike Khattab, vice president of sales for Vision Solutions. "One of the fundamental reasons why business has continued to thrive in this region, despite the global downturn, is an economic stronghold in the Middle East that has shown great resiliency through the recession. With continued fast growth and impressive investment in infrastructure the region is set to prosper."
