1/19/2004 - EmergeCore Networks, developer of the award-winning IT-100® network appliance for small business and branch offices, announced a distribution partnership with D&H Distributing. Spanning the U.S. for more than 85 years, D&H has become one of the nation's oldest and largest distributors and has successfully established itself as the reseller "distributor of choice." D&H has signed the IT-100 as a strategic new product offering, following the IT-100's recent VARBusiness Tech Innovators Award for 2003 in the Linux category over competitors IBM and Novell.
"When we saw EmergeCore win the Tech Innovators Choice Award over both IBM and Novell, we knew the phenomena EmergeCore had started was too great to ignore," said Rick Prayer, senior buyer for D&H. "This award, coupled with the overwhelmingly positive press and market response to the IT-100, made this a product that we feel we absolutely must include in our offerings."
Dave Brown, CEO of EmergeCore, said, "With this distribution agreement, EmergeCore is greatly expanding its reach to the market. D&H is clearly considered one of the largest and most successful distributors in America. With their long-term relationships and experience, we anticipate great results from this relationship. We are thrilled to announce this alliance with a company of D&H's caliber and strength."
The IT-100 combines 20 gigabytes of storage Express Setup, Multiple Domains, Web Server, FTP Server, File Server, Alarms, Proxy Server, NAT, 4 Port Switch, Website Builder, eCommerce, Upgrade, Router, Domain Users, DNS Server, Email Server, DHCP Server, Statistics, Firewall, Wireless Access Point, Backup/Restore and VPN services in a single $1,395 device.
For small to medium-sized businesses (SMB) or branch offices, the IT-100® eliminates the need for costly IT support. Even a non-technical person can set up and manage the IT-100 through the CoreVista Web® browser interface. There's no software installation required.
The GUI windows-like interface of the CoreVista Web software is so simple even a non-technical staff member could set up the network in minutes. The resulting network can support PCs, Macintosh workstations and Unix machines-basically any device with an Ethernet or wireless access point, including laptops, Tablet PCs and PDAs.

To reduce costs and simplify IT solutions, small businesses are focusing on simple, easy to manage technologies.
