DataCore Software Partners with Award Winning Technology Integrator Red River

Thriving Solution Provider with Superior Federal IT Solutions Experience Becomes Latest Addition to the DataCore Channel Ecosystem in the Americas

May 24, 2016 DataCore Software, the leader in Parallel-Powered Software, Application-Adaptive Data Infrastructure and Hyper-converged Virtual SAN solutions, today announced that Red River has
joined the growing list of exceptional IT solutions providers serving as DataCore solution providers and resellers in the Americas. Red River, a CRN 2016
Tech Elite Solution Provider and a Top 60 CRN Triple Crown award winner for revenue growth, standout solutions and technical expertise is a leading
technology integrator and is widely regarded for its special focus on the U.S. government – an $80 billion IT market.

“By partnering with DataCore and championing the benefits of Software-Defined Storage, Red River continues to deliver on our promise to provide only the
best-of-breed solutions and services to our customers,” said Jeff Sessions, president of Red River.

DataCore is an investment that provides ongoing returns to users – it enhances existing storage, provides future-proofing and allows companies to build a
storage strategy that can meet the dynamic needs of a virtual world. Contrary to traditional ‘rip and replace’ storage solutions, DataCore is a portable
and perpetual software solution – the intelligence is never thrown away during upgrades or expansion. This is of even more importance in the federal space
where budgets are even tighter and doing more with less is endemic mandate.

The DataCore Difference: Universal Management and Control across Any Storage Infrastructure

“We are excited and proud to have Red River as a partner because they have developed a remarkable reputation for delivering IT products and
hardware-related services to military and civilian agencies and the companies that serve them,” stated Devi Madhavan, vice president of Americas Channel
Sales, DataCore Software. “When Red River clients buy DataCore, they are making an investment in a solution whereby their IT teams will now be able to have
universal management and control across whatever storage infrastructure they have in place.”

In addition to a complete set of cross-platform storage services that delivers centralized storage management, the advantages DataCore brings to Red River
customers include:

– The ability to avoid vendor lock-in and costly ‘rip and replace’ upgrades
The ability to easily take advantage of advances in hardware technology
The ability to repurpose aging storage systems
The ability to leverage white box or off-the-shelf disks, cards and devices

DataCore brings a lot of added value by enabling users to leverage the power of Software-Defined Storage to achieve faster performance, better data
protection and overall storage efficiency. Organizations can instantly repurpose their existing server and storage equipment by adding DataCore’s storage virtualization and Hyper-converged Virtual SAN solutions.

As a software platform, customers are not locked in to a particular hardware vendor and can swap out underlying hardware “at will.”
