FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. and TORONTO -- DataCore Software, the leading provider of storage virtualization software, today announced that one of its partners Interware Systems has made DataCore storage virtualization software the cornerstone of its Total Enterprise Virtualization practice. Historically focusing on network security, Interware Systems has grown into a total solutions provider that now focuses on selling and implementing virtualization solutions with the goal of getting companies to embrace Total Enterprise Virtualization.

Interware Systems is also a Microsoft Gold Partner, an enterprise partner of VMware, Citrix XenPartner and is partnered with several other leading technology companies. Interware Systems now offers the only DataCore Authorized Training Center in the Canada, located in Toronto.
DataCore has enabled us to get our foot in the door with a lot of SMB customers, said Lak Gill, vice president, Interware Systems. As opposed to hardware-based SANs, which cost tens of thousands of dollars, we can now provide these SMBs with low-cost SAN solutions, priced as low as $1,000. And with that as the foundation, we can upgrade these customers later on enabling their infrastructures to grow as their companies grow. Interware has customers throughout North America and is responsible for several new DataCore accounts, including The State Group, Covenant House Toronto, Vulcain Inc., Tempest Management Corp. and Caisse Centrale Desjardins, among others. Based in Toronto, Interware Systems have been in business since 1984.
