EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- December 20, 2012

Datalink (Nasdaq: DTLK), a leading provider of data center infrastructure and
services, was named Healthcare Partner of the Year by NetApp® at its recent
United States Public Sector (USPS) Partner Summit, held in White Sulfur
Springs, West Virginia. The award was based on Datalink’s strong revenue
performance resulting from the design, deployment, and support of NetApp-based
storage and virtual data center infrastructures for healthcare organizations
throughout the United States.

Healthcare organizations are increasingly challenged to address rapid data
growth fueled by the migration to electronic medical records, as well as
expanding medical imaging archives. Datalink works closely with mid and
large-size healthcare organizations to transform their data centers,
leveraging converged data center infrastructures, like FlexPod®, to deliver
greater data center efficiency, scalability, and agility. FlexPod is a
pretested and validated data center architecture that combines networking,
computing, and NetApp storage.

“We are naming Datalink the Healthcare Partner of the Year to recognize
Datalink’s proven leadership in designing agile solutions for both the payer
and provider healthcare markets,” said David Nesvisky, senior director, NetApp
Healthcare. “This is the first award presented to a channel partner since the
inception of our healthcare practice in 2010. Datalink sales, design, and
support of comprehensive IT solutions for our joint healthcare constituents
have been exemplary.”

“We are pleased to be recognized by NetApp for our strong performance in the
healthcare industry,” commented Datalink President and CEO Paul Lidsky.
“Healthcare organizations are under intense pressure to drive greater
efficiency, gain competitive advantage, and enhance patient care. Datalink has
a proven track record of helping healthcare organizations optimize IT to
facilitate the achievement of these goals.”

Building converged data center infrastructures like FlexPod requires
cross-discipline capabilities spanning servers, storage, and networks.
Datalink offers a full suite of services, including analysis, design,
implementation, management, and OneCall^SM Unified Support for virtual data
center environments.
