Growth catapults Datavail among the largest providers of remote database
administration services in North America.

Broomfield, CO, July 11, 2012 -- Datavail announced today its acquisition
of Seattle-based Blue Gecko, which now positions the company among the
largest providers of remote database administration (DBA) services in
North America and the largest remote managed services provider in the
Rocky Mountain region. According to terms of the agreement, Datavail,
which provides 24x7 database services spanning database administration,
monitoring, staffing and consulting, is acquiring more than 100
customers, hundreds of projects and highly skilled employees with
additional Oracle expertise. Blue Gecko will operate as a wholly-owned
subsidiary of Datavail with the intent to merge business and technical
operations over the next year.

With 75 percent of Blue Gecko’s customers located in the Pacific
Northwest, this acquisition is part of Datavail’s strategic plan to grow
aggressively in local North American markets. In addition to broadening
its geographic reach, Datavail will benefit from Blue Gecko’s strong
presence in the Oracle and MySQL communities and its knowledgeable staff.
For Blue Gecko customers, Datavail will offer a host of new services,
additional support staff and technical expertise.

“By merging our managed services capabilities and resources with the
established presence and highly regarded reputation that Blue Gecko has
built, Datavail is well positioned to serve the Seattle market and
effectively support this strategic growth,” said Mark Perlstein,
president & CEO, Datavail. “As we grow, providing optimum customer
service will remain our number one priority. This company operates based
on a high degree of ethics and customer transparency; we do what’s right
for our customers.”

Blue Gecko customers will continue to work with their current database
administrators (DBAs), and gain access to a larger portfolio of services,
including increased Microsoft SQL Server capacity, the Information
Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) framework and staff
augmentation. Blue Gecko principals Chuck Edwards and JJ Ecker will
assume executive management positions with Datavail and remain based in
Seattle.

“This acquisition provides exciting growth opportunities for our
employees and offers more expansive services and support for our
customers,” said Chuck Edwards, CEO, Blue Gecko. “Datavail values the
relationships we have built with customers and our domain knowledge so
both will be leveraged to best serve our growing customer base.”

Blue Gecko A/S, located in Denmark, was not acquired by and is not
affiliated with Datavail, but maintains a commercial relationship with
Datavail.
