Marathon Technologies Corporation and NOW Wireless Announce Partnership for Marathon Enduranceยฎ Virtual FTserverโ„ข
Boxborough, Mass., USA and London, U.K. (May 11, 2004) โ€” Marathon Technologies Corporation, the worldโ€™s only developer of fault- and disaster-tolerant software solutions for Microsoftยฎ Windowsยฎ environments, announced today that NOW Wireless will represent their products in the U.K. NOW Wireless will promote, sell and service the Marathon Enduranceยฎ Virtual FTserverโ„ข software product line. Sales began the second half of March 2004.
Marathon Enduranceยฎ Virtual FTserverโ„ข (hereafter Endurance) software enables fault- and disaster-tolerant Microsoft Windows 2000 Server and Microsoftยฎ Windowsยฎ Server 2003 solutions at a price point that is significantly lower than any other available solution today. Marathonโ€™s new offering, which runs on standard Intel Pentium 4 Uniprocessors supporting Hyper-Threading Technology, dramatically lowers the entry price point for fault- and disaster-tolerant Windows 2000 and Windows 2003 based server systems. Available within 45 days, with complete, ready to run configurations starting at โ‚ฌ13,495 Euros and UK ยฃ8,995, customers with Intelยฎ Architecture environments who have not been able to take advantage of continuous server technology uptime advances now have that option. In addition, protecting servers with Endurance software also dramatically reduces total cost of server ownership, including daily system operation, maintenance, management and overall busines
s workflow protection.
โ€œBy choosing NOW Wireless as a strategic selling partner in The U.K., we are able to offer Marathonโ€™s Enduranceยฎ Virtual FTserverโ„ข continuous server uptime to customers combined with the specific technology and service know-how that NOW Wireless has developed over years of cooperation with Marathonโ€ said George C. Tranos, President and CEO of Marathon Technologies.
โ€œThis release of Endurance Virtual FTserver represents a bold move on Marathonโ€™s part to enable fault- and disaster tolerant computing for the majority of businesses. We are delighted to represent Marathon in the U.K. and offer our customers solutions that will ensure their business continuityโ€said Brian Jackson, Managing Director of NOW Wireless.
The continuous server solution addresses todayโ€™s business requirement that systems and applications run stably and without interruption 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Fault tolerance and reliability are superior to that achieved with clusters. In the event of hardware failure, applications continue processing transparent to the user virtually eliminating interruption while protecting data integrity. Standard applications that are not cluster-interactive can be run easily in a high reliability environment. The Marathon based solution is entirely implemented in software negating the requirement for dedicated proprietary hardware traditionally required to implement a fault tolerant server.
