Growing Strategic Partnership extended to GoAhead’s Configuration Management Solution

Bellevue, Wash. — February 9, 2011 — GoAhead Software and Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson and the global leader in enabling Business-Critical Continuity™, today announced that they have expanded their successful partnership with the selection of the GoAhead embeddedMIND configuration management solution for base platform management of future Emerson Network Power embedded computing products.

The choice by Emerson Network Power of embeddedMIND for future ATCA, CompactPCI, VME, and embedded motherboard products builds on the existing relationship focused on the GoAhead OpenSAFfire High Availability solution.

“Using the embeddedMIND software will help to extend the market leadership of Emerson Network Power by giving our OEM customers new solutions that further reduce development costs and risks,” said Dave Maggart, product marketing director, Embedded Computing, Emerson Network Power. “Expanding our partnership to include the embeddedMIND software will strengthen our relationship in the core telecommunications markets and as importantly take our partnership into new market segments. We are looking forward to giving our customers solutions based on embeddedMIND that enhance their ease of use and application portability.”

GoAhead’s embeddedMIND has gained significant momentum in recent months as the company’s partners and customers have discovered its considerable benefits. “We are pleased with the selection of embeddedMIND by Emerson Network Power,” said Bill Yaman, GoAhead’s Senior Vice-President of Sales and Marketing. “It is very gratifying for GoAhead to have an industry leader and long-time partner make this decision.
