This is the fourth consecutive year that 42U has achieved the top VAR status for Raritan Computer, one of the nation’s leading provider of centralized server management solutions.

“For the past 4 years we have held this prestigious honor, and we are extremely pleased,” said Alan Mamane, CEO of DirectNET. “The credit has to go to our 42U KVM Switch Solutions sales division in achieving this status. Raritan has been the leader in Cat5 KVM Technology and our 42U sales force worked very hard in 2005 to maintain our technological lead over our competition. Our commitment to providing superior service, support and value for our customers has fueled our double digit growth each year for the past 6 years.”

DirectNET has a track record of satisfying customers by consistently going the extra step – such as setting up Raritan solutions in DirectNET labs prior to shipping to customers. We applaud DirectNET for their success, and we look forward to growing together in 2006.”

Jon Inaba, Director of sales and operations for 42U states, “We have to thank Raritan for working with us so closely throughout 2005 and aiding us in supporting our customers. Every year they continue to produce excellent products that help us close our enterprise KVM sales a lot faster than before. Their Dominion KX KVM over IP products and Raritan’s Paragon II remain some of our most popular server management solutions.”
