IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - April 08, 2008) Vision Solutions, the
leading high availability (HA) and disaster recovery solutions
provider in IBM's Power Systems market (NYSE: IBM), today introduced
an express offering targeting small to mid-market IBM System p
customers using AIX. Collaborating with IBM and distribution partner
Arrow ECS, Vision Solutions is providing affordable, reliable, and
easy-to-use high availability solutions for businesses of all sizes.

"By partnering with Arrow and IBM, superior systems solutions are now
easily available to the small to mid-market," says Vision Solutions
Senior Vice President of EMEA and Americas Sales, Bob Johnson. "The
reception to our business continuity products in the IBM System p
world continues to be extraordinary, and this express offering
significantly adds to that enthusiasm."

The offering couples IBM System p servers and Vision Solutions'
EchoStream data replication software with advanced CDP (real
continuous data protection) functionality. Now organizations of all
sizes can take advantage of any-point-in-time recovery of valuable
data inadvertently lost or corrupted. Other advantages include
advanced usability of replicated data for testing, installing
upgrades and business intelligence utilization. Installation and
training take less than a day and the bundle includes specially

application to its growing list of value-added solutions enhancing
its focus on the SMB space. Mike Nowlan, executive vice president of
Arrow ECS, outlined the offering: "Arrow ECS p-Series resellers are

wanting to take advantage of this outstanding value."

IBM and Vision Solutions have had a successful technology alliance
for almost 20 years in both System i and System p markets. Nick
Vlamis, IBM's System p product manager weighed in on this new
offering. "This collaboration takes the IBM/Vision relationship to a
new level by joining forces with Arrow ECS and its partners to make a
complete offering for any company looking for necessary data
