    SAN JOSE, Calif., April 23 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ --
 Rainfinity, the provider of high availability software for e-business, today
 announced that Omnibility, a leading Internet development firm, has selected
 RainSLB Web server high availability and load balancing software to improve
 the availability and performance of its customer e-services and Web-based
 applications.  As a result, Omnibility can easily interact and collaborate
 with its customers, as well as distribute various services throughout its
 server farm, with complete confidence that critical network components will
 remain operational around the clock with maximum performance.  The use of
 RainSLB puts Omnibility in an ideal position to improve its customer
 relationships while effectively retaining its competitive edge in today's
 rapidly evolving market economy.
     Omnibility chose RainSLB because of its ability to manage high user load
 and direct specific types of traffic to certain servers without disrupting its
 clients' businesses.  With RainSLB, Omnibility can maintain its open
 environment and ability to easily and reliably distribute its services across
 its server farms.
     "We have service level agreements with our customers that require us to be
 always available," said Daniel Shue, president of Omnibility.  "With
 Rainfinity on our team, we don't have to worry about interrupting service or
 losing current connections with our customers.  In our business, especially in
 today's fast-paced environment, this high level of reliability is a must.
 Because of our successful relationship with Rainfinity and its products, we
 plan to add additional RainSLB servers to our Web portal as we continue to
 expand our services."
     "Omnibility is leveraging Rainfinity's high availability software to bring
 its high quality of customer service to the Internet," said Lou Delzompo,
 vice president of products for Rainfinity.  "Because of RainSLB's speed of
 deployment and flexibility to adapt to existing Web applications, Omnibility
 is assured that its e-services and Web-based applications will be up and
 running at all times to optimize its customers' Web experience."
 
     RainSLB Web Server HA and Load Balancing Software
     RainSLB Web server high availability and load balancing software
 implements all the intelligent load-balancing and persistence methods of a
 world-class traffic management gateway, including cookie, SSL Session ID and
 Source IP persistence methods, as well as Fixed, Round Robin, Random and Least
 Connections.  RainSLB enables organizations to easily control, load balance
 and provide high availability to multiple web servers (HTTP), FTP servers and
 LDAP servers, as well as other applications such as Citrix MetaFrame, from a
 central location.
     RainSLB can be deployed in conjunction with RainWall or as a stand-alone
 load balancer.  When deployed with the RainWall module on the RainFront
 platform, RainSLB balances the load of application and Web servers sitting
 behind the firewall.  Without a firewall, RainSLB offers a set of basic
 network security features that includes IP filtering, DSNAT(TM)
 (Distributed Secure Network Address Translation) and protection from SYN flood
 attacks.  RainFront, Rainfinity's intelligent open platform for the network
 edge, simplifies Internet application deployment and management, allowing
 organizations to grow their infrastructures painlessly and without limit as
 their Internet demands increase.
