BURLINGTON, Mass. -- April 16, 2013

VMTurbo, the leading provider of software-defined control for cloud and
virtualized environments, today announced that it has partnered with Net One
Systems, a leading network services reseller in Japan, to distribute VMTurbo
Operations Manager. With the partnership, IDC Frontier, an innovative provider
of data center solutions, selected VMTurbo to address the challenges
associated with operating, optimizing and controlling their virtualized
infrastructure.

“Adding VMTurbo to our portfolio of competitive and innovative IT solutions
caters directly to our customers’ business needs,” said Fumihiko Shinoura,
executive officer of Net One Systems. “We are seeing the demand for advanced
virtualization and cloud solutions escalate, and bringing VMTurbo on board
enables us to offer a transformative, automated IT operations solution that
ensures cloud and virtualized environments are operating in the most optimized
state.”

Virtualization Initiatives Shift from Consolidation to Improving IT Operations
and Service Delivery

As the focus of virtualization deployments shifts from consolidation to
improving IT operations and service delivery, VMTurbo delivers a new approach
to meet the challenges associated with planning, deploying, managing and
maintaining these complex virtual and cloud environments. Rather than simply
collecting data and providing alerts, the product’s software-defined control
offloads and automates decision-making from operational staff—reducing time
spent troubleshooting and maximizing infrastructure utilization. IDC Frontier
quickly recognized the value offered by VMTurbo and the positive impact
VMTurbo Operations Manager will have on differentiating their service
delivery. By selecting VMTurbo, IDC Frontier is increasing its ability to
assure service delivery and value to their customers.

“As one of the largest service providers in the Japanese market, we look for
IT operations solutions that increase scalability and assure service delivery
for business customers running applications in the IDC Frontier cloud,” said
Noriaki Terakado, general manager, Service Development Department Technology
Division at IDC Frontier. “Selecting VMTurbo was an easy decision as it
delivers on all these criteria—offering a closed-loop solution for operations
management.”

“Net One Systems is leading the charge in solving the real challenges their
customers are experiencing in managing cloud services and IT operations in
virtualized data centers. They are capitalizing on the opportunities to drive
operational efficiencies and capital cost savings, and we look forward to
working with such a respected solutions provider in the important Japanese
market,” said N. Louis Shipley, president and chief executive officer at
VMTurbo. “IDC Frontier’s decision to select VMTurbo Operations Manager is a
great example of leading organizations embracing a new approach to controlling
their virtual infrastructure and raising the consistencyof service delivery.”
