Lifeboat Distribution Names DataCore Software "Beacon Partner of the Year" for 2009 Virtualization Business

DataCore Software today announced that Lifeboat Distribution has honored DataCore™, presenting the company with Lifeboat’s coveted “Beacon Partner of the Year” award for 2009. Lifeboat Distribution is an international specialty software distributor for virtualization and other technically sophisticated products.

“In selecting DataCore Software as Lifeboat’s Beacon Partner for 2009, we recognize the strategic value that DataCore’s storage virtualization software brings to our reseller partners,” said Dan Jamieson, vice president and general manager, Lifeboat Distribution. “Simply put, DataCore completes the three dimensions of virtualization – desktops, servers, and storage – that value-added resellers and hosting providers require for total virtual solutions.”

Taking Virtualization to the 3rd Dimension

This announcement follows on the heels of VMware Partner Exchange 2010 in which a cadre of resellers and solution providers championed DataCore Software as the 3rd dimension to their Virtualization practice – heralding DataCore™ storage virtualization software as strategic to their server virtualization and desktop virtualization business.

By virtualizing disks across pools of tiered storage devices, DataCore storage virtualization software overcomes incompatibilities among different generations, models and manufacturers to maximize their combined value. The virtualization of storage is as important, financially and operationally, to a successful virtual infrastructure project as virtualization of servers and desktops.

“We are thrilled that Lifeboat Distribution has named DataCore Software its Beacon Partner for 2009,” commented Bettye Grant, VP of Americas Distribution Sales, DataCore Software. “What Lifeboat Distribution has recognized from working with virtualization resellers and solution providers is that DataCore storage virtualization software overcomes the major storage-related obstacles and upheaval that slow down or stop virtualization projects from getting off the ground or being successful when deploying a virtual infrastructure.”
