Microsoft, Marathon Deal

I'm just going to make a quick mention of this because, hey, it's Microsoft. Redmond has announced a deal with Marathon, a Massachusetts-based company that provides fault tolerant, high availability software for Windows Server environments and competes with Stratus. In 2007 the company started going after the market for virtual servers and now also supports Citrix XenServer. The deal is going to allow Marathon to resell Windows 2000 and Exchange 2000 products. Both companies will also work more closely together to optimize customer solutions that go after the main value prop for FT, reducing downtime and data loss. (Up until now, the company hasn't really had a formal relationship with Redmond, interestingly enough.)
