SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- April 30, 2013

HotLink® Corporation, the market leader in transformation solutions for
heterogeneous virtualization management, today announced it has been included
in the list of "Cool Vendors" in the “Cool Vendors in Cloud Management, 2013”
report by Gartner, Inc.

HotLink’s award-winning solutions, HotLink SuperVISOR and HotLink Hybrid
Express, dramatically simplify IT management complexity for heterogeneous and
hybrid computing infrastructure. The solutions are built on a game-changing
transformation engine that enables native interoperability of all major
hypervisors and public cloud platforms using existing management consoles such
as VMware vCenter and Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager. With
HotLink, customers can easily deploy, manage, integrate and administer
cross-platform resources, both on and off-premise, while fully leveraging
existing management infrastructure and skills.

“We believe our inclusion as a Gartner Cool Vendor highlights the industry
importance of next-generation management solutions for the virtual data
center. As enterprises continue to grow and diversify the platforms that make
up their resource pools, management complexity is the Achilles heel,” said
Lynn LeBlanc, CEO and founder of HotLink. “Our team is singularly focused on
enabling technologies that eliminate the difficulties of deploying and
managing disparate infrastructures, whether on-premise or in the cloud.”

Cloud-based computing provides practically unlimited compute resources at a
minimal incremental cost. However, interoperating with existing data center
operations had been an insurmountable hurdle. Deployed in large enterprises
cross-industry, HotLink’s solutions allow IT managers to target the optimal
resource type for each use case, whether cloud-based or not, yet fully
leverage existing management infrastructure, investments and skills. No other
hybrid IT solution provides the simplicity, flexibility and seamless operation
of the HotLink technology.
