Xiotech Wins IT Partner Award From Garland Independent School District in Texas for Fifth Consecutive Year

Xiotech Recognized for Continued Commitment to Delivering Superior IT Value for School District

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., Aug. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Xiotech Corporation today announced that it has received the FOCUS Award from the Garland (Texas) Independent School District Technology Department for the fifth consecutive year. The award recognizes outstanding business partners whose customer service and overall performance exceed Garland ISD's expectations.

Garland ISD recognized Xiotech again this year for the company's continued commitment to delivering the data storage solutions and services the district needs to efficiently manage increased levels of data. Since implementing its first Xiotech((R)) storage system in 2004, Garland ISD's data volumes have increased exponentially, due to expanding enrollment and the growth of digital course materials. The district currently has several Magnitude 3D((R)) storage systems and plans to ultimately upgrade to Xiotech's Emprise(TM) 7000 systems built on patented Intelligent Storage Element (ISE(TM)) technology.

"It's rare that we give our FOCUS Award to a partner of ours over five consecutive years, but we're proud to honor Xiotech in this way," said Garland ISD Director of Information Systems Quinton Pierce. "We originally chose Xiotech in 2004 for its data storage technology and easy-to-use storage management solutions, and ever since we've been blown away by the company's superior customer service and sustained commitment to our success. With all the innovation and new value they continue to bring us, we have no reason to ever look for another data storage partner."

"We take great pride in delivering superior storage value to great organizations like Garland ISD, so we're honored to win their FOCUS Award five straight years," said Xiotech Vice President of Marketing Mike Hoch. "We look forward to continuing to bring industry-leading value to Garland ISD and our other customers through our ISE architecture, which includes self-healing capabilities, the industry's most efficient performance and scalability and unparalleled reliability backed by a five-year hardware warranty."

Garland ISD is the second-largest school district in Texas' Dallas County and the 10th largest in the state of Texas, with an enrollment of more than 58,000 students. The district manages 45 elementary schools, 13 middle schools and seven high schools. The district also operates an additional 16 facilities that provide services for early childhood development, sporting events and community learning.
