LinuxMagic, a leading provider of Carrier Grade Email Platforms for the ISP and Telco markets, has partnered with Zerowait to offer their customers Off-Lease NetApp storage solutions for their mail applications. Michael Peddemors, President/CEO of LinuxMagic, said: “ISP's and Telco's need fast, efficient storage devices for their customers email, and we have always recommended NetApp as a 'Best of Breed' storage device. One of our ISP customers introduced us to Zerowait, and after discovering how inexpensive off-lease systems could be, we began recommending customers contact Zerowait when they wanted reliable, high volume email storage for their 'MagicMail' servers. The price of 'new' NetApp storage can stretch the budget, but by purchasing off lease systems from Zerowait, ISP's can take advantage of moving to NetApp Storage while keeping their costs in line. When we decided to launch our own email hosting service, we had been so impressed by customer reports, we also turned to Zerowait for their cost effective solutions. Now, we don't hesitate to tell all our customers to contact Zerowait when sourcing mail storage.”

Added Mike Linett, President of Zerowait: “NetApp leases over $1 Billion of new product each year. To provide the leasing companies with residual value which allows them to reduce the lease rate, NetApp allows the leasing companies to do a one-time transfer of available licenses on the systems being resold, and agrees they will provide support for these new customers. NetApp has not publicized this program to minimize competition for their new products, which is understandable since we can offer one generation old NetApp Storage for less than half the price of new.”

Rob Robinson, Vice President of Sales for Zerowait, noted: “We’re pleased to be able to work with LinuxMagic to help them provide complete solutions for their customers. Linux users are value driven customers, and expect the same value from their storage solutions as their applications. When a LinuxMagic customer comes to Zerowait for a solution, we can tailor the system to meet their budget as well as their storage requirements. Our support packages help their customers keep their ongoing storage expenses in check, and we support NetApp products beyond NetApp’s artificial end of life dates to make sure each customer gets the most from their storage investment.”

Michael Peddemors added, “Our customers expect a lot from their partners, and we would not recommend talking to anyone that didn't give the same levels of service we are known for. We don't only recommend Zerowait for their Low Cost NetApp Mail Storage devices, but because the Zerowait team has the expertise and great customer service attitude that our ISP/Telco customers expect.”

The High Performance storage NetApp provides is an important element of high volume, high I/O environments such as email and databases, and it is especially important in the high volume, mission critical applications of the Telecom's and ISP's.
