Ecora and Entisys Partnership Brings Together Two Emerging Leaders In VMware Market

Leading Provider of Automated Regulatory Compliance Solutions Teams with VMWare Premier Enterprise Partner

Portsmouth, N.H. – December 11, 2006 – Ecora Software, the industry's only solution for automating reporting for regulatory compliance audits and accelerating implementation of IT best practices for IT systems management, today announced a reseller agreement with Entisys, a VMWare Premier Enterprise Partner, the highest partnership level within the VMWare VIP Program.

The reseller agreement brings together two strategic players in the VMWare market. A leading provider of configuration management to the VMWare market, Ecora has experienced a surge in requests for VMWare ESX licenses – over 500 new licenses in the past 60 days. As one of the select few Premier Enterprise Partners, Entisys is able to more strongly partner with VMWare in delivering their Virtualization Practice to clients and provide value-added solutions and services using VMWare technologies. VMWare recently named Entisys as their North American Partner of the Year.

Through this reseller agreement, Entisys will offer Ecora's compliance and configuration reporting solutions to its growing base of VMWare customers.

“As the only compliance and configuration reporting vendor that supports VMWare, Ecora gives Entisys a dramatic advantage in the VMWare market,” said Mike Strohl, president of Entisys. “Our relationship with Ecora is a key differentiator for Entisys, enabling us to offer configuration management and reporting as part of a VMWare implementation and assuring our customers that they are a receiving the most complete VMWare solution available today – and in the future. Entisys is the creator of Virtualization Oriented Architecture, and we see this relationship with Ecora as a key component for creating virtualization strategies and roadmaps for our customers.”

“This reseller agreement with Entisys secures Ecora's position as the leading provider of detailed compliance and configuration reporting to the VMWare market,” said Joe Fiorentino, Ecora's chief executive officer. “VMWare's recognition of Entisys as North American Partner of the Year is in large part a result of Entisys' commitment to select only those partners that can bring real impact to their virtualization practice and to the industry, and we're pleased that this relationship is viewed as a benefit to their customers. We look forward to joining with Entisys to provide these customers with the best tools to completely automate the process of gathering change, configuration and system access data to reduce the cost of maintaining compliancy and to ease the auditing process.”

The reseller agreement with Entisys addresses the growing interest in the VMWare market for solutions that help to monitor and control system changes as well as device and application configurations in the virtual realm, in the same manner as their physical, IT infrastructure counterparts.

The very first VMWare Premier Enterprise Partner in Northern California and one of only a select few in the world, Entisys was selected as a VMWare Authorized Consulting Partner earlier this year. The VMWare Authorized Consultant level is only awarded to companies that have demonstrated core competencies in delivering consulting best practices that have been developed around VMWare virtualization solutions. Entisys Solutions only delivers VMWare certified consulting best practices following the VMWare Jumpstart and VMWare Infrastructure Management Certified Solutions.
