"SteelEye's LifeKeeper provides our customers with the security they need to deploy reliable and cost-effective print server solutions in enterprise environments," said Boris Geller, VP of marketing at SteelEye. "Unavailable print services result in stalled business processes that result in dissatisfied customers and lost revenue, often amounting to millions of dollars per hour. The combination of LifeKeeper, Linux print services and Intel-based servers delivers maximum reliability and uptime that enable enterprise IT managers to lower total cost of ownership while providing a higher level of service."
