EPlus Provides Surry Community College With Data Center/Voice Upgrade And Virtual Desktop Infrastructure

HERNDON, Va., March 29, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- e Plus inc. (Nasdaq:PLUS) announced today that its subsidiary, e Plus Technology, inc., was selected by Surry Community College to design, source, configure, and implement a data center and voice upgrade as well as a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) initiative.

Surry Community College had four IT initiatives: update an old phone system, upgrade its network to improve reliability and performance, leverage wireless technology access across campuses, and support VDI to better manage PCs throughout numerous facilities. The College chose e Plus to handle the entire scope of the project based on its long-standing strategic partnerships with key manufacturers (including Cisco, VMware, NetApp, and HP), extensive knowledge of required technologies, experience working with institutions of higher education, and a local presence in the North Carolina region.

Surry Community College should receive numerous benefits from the solution, including increased network efficiency and management, improved service delivery to faculty and staff, cost savings and energy conservation, enhanced staff productivity, and better use of grant funding and budget dollars.

"We're pleased to bring a wide range of benefits to Surry Community College through the combined voice, network, wireless, and VDI initiatives. This engagement is an example of the strength that e Plus' comprehensive offering brings to customers—allowing us to leverage our broad technical expertise and partnerships with top manufacturers to support multiple aspects of the IT infrastructure," said Mark Marron, president of e Plus Technology.  

"One of the most compelling factors in our selection of e Plus is having one solution provider for all four IT initiatives, rather than having to manage communication with different providers," said Nate Nixon, chief technology officer at Surry Community College. "With the solution designed and installed by e Plus, we have an IT infrastructure in place to help us work more efficiently and that can leverage additional technology in the future. It is important to work with a company like e Plus, with a local team that provides excellent customer service and delivers consistent support."

e Plus is a Cisco Gold Certified Partner with Cisco Master specializations in Security and Unified Communications as well as the Cisco Managed Services Master Certification in addition to many Cisco advanced specializations and authorizations.  e Plus is a Premier-level partner in the VMware Partner Network and holds VMware Solution Competencies in Infrastructure Virtualization, Business Continuity, and Desktop Virtualization.  e Plus is also a NetApp Star Partner and a leading HP business partner with 12 HP PartnerONE Elite status designations.
