BCTI Announces New Partnership with VMware

Johnson City, TN, November 14, 2008 --(PR.com)-- BCTI announced today its new VIP Professional Partner relationship with VMware. This formal partnership solidifies the relationship BCTI has held with VMware for the past several years, and allows the company to offer the entire range of VMware products. BCTI’s certified VMware experts can design and implement a VMware solution for both small-to-medium and large companies.

“We have seen virtualization grow in the industry and mature into a proven solution that we want to offer our customers. When you think of VMware, you think of server consolidation; but that is not the reason why people deploy VMware solutions. One of the main benefits of using VMware is high availability. When VMware servers are deployed with one of our SAN solutions, our customers realize seamless failover at the most cost effective price point available today,“ said President and CEO Chase Boles.

Companies with mission critical applications and services which require high server availability and protection from physical hardware failure should investigate the advantages of virtualization. In addition, companies with a large number of applications will benefit from server consolidation. The BCTI/VMware partnership will provide regional businesses the opportunity to learn about virtualization and have virtualization experts on-hand to assist as they choose and implement a solution.

“BCTI utilizes VMware in house production and has over half of our servers running virtually. We have applications such as Terminal Services, Symantec Backup Exec, and Microsoft SharePoint servers all running with very high performance. We know it provides significant protection and reliability for our business as well as for our customer’s,” said Mark Ison, BCTI Systems Engineer.

VMware offers the best products in virtualization, which is why BCTI has chosen to partner with the market leader. To learn more about Virtualization or VMware products, please contact BCTI at (423) 283-0543 or visit www.bcti.com.
