ITERA has formalised an agreement with Team Computing , a leading value added reseller (VAR) of the IBM eServer iSeries platform to the small and medium (SMB) market in Australia, to be a primary distributor of iTera's Echo2 High Availability software in that country.
Noting their strong reputation for providing clients cost effective solutions, Team Computing CEO Peter Sanderson said, "After a thorough evaluation, we decided to partner with iTera because of their comprehensive solution, great scalability, flexibility and ease of installation; plus, their pricing is simply unprecedented for such a robust solution."
In January 2005, TechTarget's Search400 publication (www.search400.com) named iTera's Echo² High Availability software the top product in the iSeries High Availability category for its Products of the Year awards. Echo² High Availability is currently installed at hundreds of manufacturing, healthcare, transportation, and distribution companies across the United States, Canada and Europe, and iTera plans to replicate its success throughout the Asia-Pacific region during 2005.
"Being named High Availability Product of the Year emphasises iTera's exceptional quality," said Sanderson. "Taking everything into consideration, there was no contest. The technologies in Echo2 High Availability surpassed every other HA solution we evaluated. We're excited to bring iTera's product to Australia's iSeries users."
Says Dan NeVille, president of iTera, "The potential for iTera's Echo2 High Availability in Australia is tremendous. The number of companies searching for a reliable HA solution at an affordable price is significant; on top of this, many other companies that already have HA installed are experiencing reliability, performance and ease-of-use problems with their current solution. I am very excited that we have an experienced and established iSeries specialist like Team Computing heading up our sales and support operations in this valuable marketplace."
