"Vision Solutions is the leading high-availability, disaster recovery and continuous operations vendor for the IBM iSeries (AS/400). We sell our software in more than 70 countries worldwide, and we have more than 4,300 licenses in the field being used by approximately 1,700 clients. Forty-four percent of the Fortune 100 use our software. We had record revenues and earnings in 2000. Although there were tough fighting conditions in the IT industry, we still managed to grow during our first half of 2001 compared to our first half of 2000 and were number one in terms of revenue against our competitors," tells Nicolaas Vlok, CEO of Vision Solutions, headquartered in Irvine, California. He confidently continues, "We feel there's a significant opportunity in the iSeries space today, but we're going to be more than an iSeries company."

"For more than a decade," notes Vlok, "our Vision Suite technology has been one of the most recommended and deployed solutions in this space. While this is our bread and butter today, we're quickly expanding into the open systems market. We plan to release UNIX high-availability and clustering products this year, and some of the products are already being tested in our facilities. We've been quite aggressive in terms of where we want to take our solutions and the company."
