FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida September 8, 2008 – DataCore Software, the leading provider of storage virtualization software, joins Microsoft’s Get Virtual Now launch event kicking off Microsoft Hyper-V server virtualization technology alongside several other major virtualization initiatives.

Following the Microsoft virtualization launch event at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue , Washington on September 8th, DataCore will accompany the Microsoft virtualization team on its U.S. Virtualization Readiness Roadshow spanning 11 U.S. cities. Beginning early October and running through mid-November, the roadshow will get virtualization products in the hands of key IT influencers and buyers in top enterprise and upper mid-market organizations. Throughout this series of free summits, those interested in virtualization can learn more about Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V, Microsoft System Center including Virtual Machine Manager 2008 and Microsoft Desktop Virtualization and Application Virtualization, as well as DataCore storage virtualization software.

Taking the virtualization portfolio on the road will go a long way to making it very real from the data center to the desktop, said James E. Price III, Vice President, Product and Channel Marketing, DataCore Software.

Customers are the real beneficiaries as virtualization technologies become more broadly available and economically attractive to implement, as with Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V, the System Center products and App-V 4.5, said David Greschler, director of integrated virtualization strategy, Microsoft Corp. Storage virtualization software, such as DataCore Software’s offerings, plays a key role when combined with Microsoft’s virtualization solutions helping companies large and small to Get Virtual Now.’
