ally offers everRun with its comprehensive set of gaming systems solutions to ensure that its customers, including some of the world's largest casinos, have continuous access to critical casino management data, networks and applications. Based on the success of installations, Bally has signed a Distribution Agreement with Marathon.
Marathon's Windows-based everRun software does not physically interact with gaming applications and unlike many availability solutions, requires very little human intervention and maintenance. everRun is already implemented in a number of casinos and is protecting their gaming applications from disruptions.
"We recognize that from a business and revenue perspective, it is critical that our customers' Windows-based gaming systems and applications are highly available, and this can be challenging for those casinos with limited onsite IT resources," said Tom Doyle, Vice President of Systems Product Management and Compliance at Bally Technologies.
"In the multiple Bally Systems sites in which we have implemented everRun, we have found that it helps us achieve our goal of delivering technology that enables gaming operators to run their businesses more efficiently."
Marathon's everRun line of fault-tolerant software products protects Microsoft Windows applications from leading sources of downtime while eliminating the need for costly and complex failover processes, specialized applications, or proprietary server hardware. Turnkey, automation, and simplicity are the cornerstones of the everRun line, which uses embedded intelligent policy management to prevent application downtime. The primary benefit to the end user is that they are protecting their business by ensuring continuity of operations - simply, at low cost and with complete confidence.
"Bally, a world leader in gaming systems, has a great understanding of where the gaming industry is headed in terms of technology and innovation," said Gary Phillips, President and CEO of Marathon Technologies. "We're pleased that they have recognized the value of adding our everRun software as part of their solution offerings for their customers."
