CRYSTAL LAKE, Illinois (PRWEB) January 18, 2007
National Association of System Administrators Corporation (NASA Corp.) has announced that it is an Associate Partner in Sun Microsystems' Sun Partner Advantage Program for Independent Software Vendors (ISVs). NASA Corp. qualified for this level by meeting Sun's stringent criteria for excellence as a developer of case management software products, and by committing to tight strategic and technical alignment with Sun.
Under the NASATrack umbrella, NASA Corp. is the developer of case management software systems CASETrack, for judicial entities, CALLTrack, for customer call centers, and CARETrack, for medical and rehabilitation centers. Each software system is available with a Web-based interface that allows the customer to publish non-confidential case data to the Internet or to the customer's protected intranet.
NASA Corp. which is based in Crystal Lake, Illinois, was founded in 1998 by John Blanchard, who serves as its present CEO. Its clients include Noble, Hendricks and Kosciusko Counties in Indiana, the Plainfield Town Center in Indiana, and the Ho-Chunk Tribal Government in Wisconsin.
By achieving Associate Partner status, NASA Corp. joins the growing community of ISVs that are developing applications for or porting applications to the Sun platform. The benefits to Sun customers include access to a broader range of pre-tested, optimized solutions; investment protection and reduced total cost of ownership through collaborative engineering between Sun and its partners; and a higher level of predictability and support as Sun rolls out its latest technologies and software upgrades.
Specifically, NASA Corp. has ported its case management software products, leveraging the extreme performance of the highly scalable and optimized networking stack introduced by the Solaris™ 10 Operating System (OS).
"We are looking forward to a long, beneficial relationship with Sun Microsystems," said John Blanchard, CEO of NASA Corp. "I have admired Sun products and the company's business practices for many years. All of us at NASA Corp. are proud to be affiliated with Sun in this way."
With the Solaris 10 OS, NASA Corp. customers have access to the popular features that are unique to this operating system, such as Dynamic Tracing (DTrace), Predictive Self-Healing, Solaris Containers and Solaris ZFS. These sophisticated features of the Solaris 10 OS provide NASA Corp. customers with increased network security, optimal performance and less overall server downtime.
