DataCore Software Announces Americas Distribution Agreement with Ingram Micro to Feed Growing Appetite for Virtualization Savings

More VARs in More Territories to Deliver “Do More with Less” Combo: DataCore Storage Virtualization and Fail-Safe High Availability Solutions for Virtual Machines and Desktops.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida – January 14, 2009 – DataCore Software, the leading vendor of storage virtualization software, today announced that they have entered into a distribution agreement with Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM), the world’s largest technology distributor. Under terms of the agreement Ingram Micro will distribute DataCore’s full line of software solutions throughout North and South America.

“We are very pleased to enter into this agreement with DataCore,” said Jodi Honore, vice president, vendor management for Ingram Micro. “DataCore is an enabling software product that our resellers can add to their arsenals, providing their customers with a solution set to virtualize their disks and achieve greater utilization of their storage investment.”

DataCore solves the storage riddle begged by server and desktop virtualization: “How can I overcome the storage bottleneck, performance and high availability challenges that become critical when many servers or desktops are consolidated into but a few physical machines, without blowing my budget for this virtualization project?”

“The answer,” according to George Teixeira, president and CEO, DataCore Software, “is that DataCore adapts your storage to these requirements, allowing you to do more with less, and leaving the physical storage purchasing decisions up to you, your timing and your budget. We are very pleased that the world’s largest technology distributor, Ingram Micro, is teaming up with us to help bring this message to an even larger audience.”
