Leading SRM products to be sold through the indirect channel

Chessington, 23 July 2003: Ideal has won the contract to distribute products from Precise Software - the Storage Resource Management (SRM) software business acquired by VERITAS Software on 30 June.

“It’s great news that this product will now switch from being directly sold by Precise to going through the reseller channel. A number of our reseller customers have already been accredited to sell Precise software and we have already trained our sales staff and technical resource to support this excellent product range," said Mark Walker, director of Ideal Enterprise Solutions.

He added "SRM is a fantastic value added service which can ensure that resellers assist their customers in solving their storage headaches. Who needs, for example, to store the same e-mail 50 times around their network? Precise is a great purchase for VERITAS and a wonderful win for us."

Precise Software is an industry leader in application performance management with 20 consecutive quarters of growth and over 6,000 customers.

VERITAS Software Corporation is the leading provider of storage management software for data protection, application availability, and disaster recovery. Over 86 per cent of Fortune 500 companies rely on VERITAS Software storage management solutions that offer proven interoperability across diverse applications, servers, storage hardware, and appliances.

Ideal is a leading UK supplier of both Enterprise and Volume solutions from VERITAS.
