LITTLETON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/12/10 -- Meeting the availability needs of an IT infrastructure is a challenging task, but ensuring remote or branch office locations are also always up and running can be especially difficult when there is traditionally little or no IT staff.

Following Stephanie's presentation, Michael Bilancieri, sr. director of products at Marathon Technologies, will explain a simplified approach to maintaining continuous, automated availability in remote locations such as retail stores, banks, hotels and financial services firms.

Its automated fault detection and embedded policy management continuously monitors systems, network and disk I/O to provide complete protection for remote locations. The webinar will provide an overview of everRun's benefits including a review of remote location case studies.
