MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 15, 2003
LEGATO Software, the leader in open software for Information Management, today announced it received a $4.3 million competitive award for business continuance and availability solutions from the Pentagon Renovation Office (PENREN), a large-scale initiative to modernize the Department of Defense's IT infrastructure. PENREN supports many agencies within the Pentagon, including the Office of the Secretary of Defense, Joint Chiefs of Staff, Army, Navy, Air Force and the Marine Corps.
Michael Sullivan, program manager for PENREN, said, "With LEGATO Software, the Pentagon Renovation Office is deploying a high-performance, automated availability solution capable of meeting the 24-by-7 continuity of operations requirements of the Department of Defense.

In this agreement, signed in LEGATO's third quarter, PENREN is deploying LEGATO's high availability software with EMC's data replication software as part of its total business continuance solution. The LEGATO-EMC solution automates the management of the disaster recovery process by automatically detecting and reporting problems, ensuring ongoing application availability, and transferring business operation to a recovery site as necessary.
In addition, LEGATO Consulting Services will provide deployment services and project management support over the next two years.
"In delivery of this contract, LEGATO reinforces its commitment to the federal marketplace by providing proven enterprise-level continuity of operation solutions that meet the stringent demands of the Department of Defense," said Chris Chappell, vice president, federal operations of LEGATO Software.
