Sean McTaggart has joined Neverfail as director of OEM Channels and will oversee the program.

Neverfail's OEM Partner Program is designed for medium to large independent software vendors (ISVs) with Windows-based solutions built on SQL, MySQL and SharePoint. By integrating and rebranding Neverfail's technology, these ISVs can include disaster recovery protection for virtually any business application through Neverfail's unique Custom Application Management Framework.
Key benefits of the program enable partners to:
Lower development costs: The Application OEM program enables the rapid, risk-free integration of Neverfail's continuous availability platform as a module within their own application software products, meeting market demands for high availability/disaster recovery (HA/DR) without increasing costs.
Reduce time-to-market: Neverfail's unique product architecture is OEM-ready. It enables immediate integration for ISVs including the ability to easily rebrand Neverfail components as their own.
Drive additional revenue: Companies can expand into new business lines with HA/DR capabilities. Neverfail supports its partners through co-marketing and joint sales activities.
Improve competitive market stance: Neverfail's proven technology combines HA and DR capabilities for intelligent protection at the application level. The solution includes real-time pre-emptive detection and correction, embedded WAN optimization and a centralized management console.
Reduce risk: When companies try to develop internal projects outside of their core competencies, it introduces additional risk. Neverfail's solution has been proven through thousands of customer deployments and several significant partner relationships. The company's continuous availability solutions have already been embedded and bundled by many industry-leading companies such as VMware, SolarWinds, and AVST.
The Neverfail OEM Partner Program is part of Neverfail's broader partner network, which includes its Reseller Network, Hosted Cloud and Strategic Technology Partner programs. To learn more about becoming a Neverfail partner, visit: http://www.neverfailgroup.com/default/partners.html
"AVST's CallXpress provides businesses with a powerful way to collaborate, improve productivity and reduce expenses, so continuous uptime and availability are essential. We selected Neverfail because its application-aware approach was the most capable of ensuring that CallXpress users will always have access to the mission-critical business tools they need to be successful."
- Tom Minifie, Chief Technology Officer, AVST
"By expanding our partner program as we have in the last few months, we have been able to offer Neverfail in a variety of convenient ways to small to medium companies, by working closely with the vendors responsible for creating and delivering business applications," said Nick Harmer, senior vice president of business development for Neverfail. "Companies are increasingly becoming aware of the need for disaster recovery protection for their applications as their own customers escalate their dependence on 24x7 access. Neverfail provides an ideal, proven solution that lets OEM partners bundle or rebrand to deliver more value to their customers in one place."
