Zmanda Launches European Partner Program

Company Expanding Market Reach to Address Demand for Open Source Backup Solutions in Europe

NURNBERG, GERMANY. - January 23, 2007 Zmanda, the leader in open source backup and recovery software, announced today a new partner program for European independent software vendors (ISVs), value-added resellers (VARs) and systems integrators who support or resell Zmanda's open source backup solutions. Members of the Zmanda Partner Program can benefit from enhanced marketing and sales support, as well as technical training from the open source backup experts at Zmanda.

Zmanda made the announcement today at the Linux Kongress 2007 show, where Zmanda's CEO Chander Kant will be making a presentation entitled "Network Backup and Recovery with Amanda," on Wednesday, January 24 at 16:00.

Zmanda addresses the growing need for enterprise-class open source solutions for critical operational tasks such as data backup and recovery. The company's Amanda Enterprise Edition is a commercial-grade version of the popular open source Amanda backup and recovery technology. Zmanda also offers Zmanda Recovery Manager (ZRM) for MySQL, the only comprehensive, enterprise-class backup and recovery solution designed specifically for MySQL databases. Amanda Enterprise and ZRM are both available as part of a subscription to the Zmanda Network, a suite of software and services for enterprise-class, open source backup and recovery.

"European businesses have taken a lead role in intelligently integrating proven open source software such as Linux and Amanda into their IT infrastructures," noted Kant. "As open source adoption continues to move beyond the development stack and into ongoing operations, we want to make it easy for technology providers to offer the commercial-grade software, services and support that are required for enterprise use. The Zmanda Partner Program gives our European partners a competitive edge as they pass on the security, reliability and cost benefits of Zmanda's open source backup solutions to their customers."
