Vision Solutions Enhances Cluster1 to Extend IB...






Software Solutions Integrated With Latest IBM Technologies Provide
Unsurpassed Protection for Data and Critical Business Systems Within
Today's Faced-Paced Marketplace

IRVINE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 03/04/08 --  Vision Solutions, the
leading high availability and disaster recovery solutions provider in
IBM's (NYSE: IBM) Power Systems market, today announced significant
enhancements to Vision Cluster1, the company's flagship enterprise
cluster management solution for System i.

Developed in close cooperation with IBM, Vision Cluster1 is the
industry's first solution to extend the reach of IBM HASM's (High
Availability Solution Manager) capabilities beyond two-nodes and
support advanced IBM technologies such as Switched Disk, Cross Site
Mirroring (Geographic Mirroring as well as IBM's SAN-based solutions
such as Metro Mirroring and Global Mirroring) and Cluster Services.
Cluster1 integrates these advanced IBM technologies with Logical
Replication solutions to provide true enterprise class high
availability and disaster recovery protection.

"Built on a close development relationship with IBM, these
fault-tolerant solutions extend IBM's latest technologies with
Vision's award-winning software," says Vision Solutions' Executive
Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, Alan Arnold. "This
collaboration and bundled offering sets a new precedence of
flexibility and fault tolerance within our industry, protecting the
most demanding high availability environments with built-in
autonomics and relative simplicity."

Vision Cluster1 provides enhanced monitoring and autonomic
capabilities that enable customers to more easily manage complex
enterprise environments and meet aggressive RTOs and RPOs. When
bundled with Vision's logical replication solutions, customers will
benefit from an improved level of protection. Vision Cluster1
includes one-button switch capabilities that work with or without a
logical replication solution. Vision's certified service providers
can greatly simplify the deployment of complex cluster topologies.
Our service providers will ensure that your solution is deployed more
efficiently and with less downtime risk. Cluster1 is also backed by
certified 24/7 service and support; these integrated offerings keep
the world's most valuable System i environments highly available.

As both a Vision Solutions and IBM customer, Cabela's has an
extensive high availability environment deployed across numerous
systems. They utilize Vision's Cluster1 to simplify monitoring,
management and control of their 24/7 environment. "Vision Solutions
and IBM are vital to our High Availability plan," says Cabela's
Senior Information Systems Specialist, Steve Treinen. "We have been
extremely happy with the product as it has matured to handle systems
of our size."

Market requirements for these integrated solutions have been
established by a growing list of customers implementing IBM and
Vision's integrated availability solutions. These offerings are
capable of delivering the level of usability, flexibility and fault
tolerance required by many of today's competing businesses.

"IBM continues to find value in the investment and support that
Vision Solutions brings to our business and mutual customers," said
Scott Handy, vice president of Worldwide Marketing and Strategy, IBM
Power Systems. "We have enjoyed a long, collaborative relationship
with Vision."
