will provide on-site, full-service support to DES customers - irrespective
of whether those customers operate on HP machines. Support will be provided

assurance that repairs for hardware problems are close at hand," said
Larry Parish, vice president of sales for DES. "While DES products
have extremely high reliability, with over one million power-on hours without
data loss, this new service agreement will provide customers with multi-vendor

expertise make it well suited to participate in the HP program. HP's Business
Alliances Program focuses on building working partnerships with third-party
vendors whose products, applications and expertise complement and
are critical to those of HP's in an open systems, client/server environment.
