PRESS RELEASE

Old Road Computing announced today it has emerged from stealth mode and is doing business as Virtual Computer, Inc. With Highland Capital Partners and Flybridge Capital Partners leading the company's Series A funding, Virtual Computer will deliver solutions that capitalize on virtualization technology to reduce the cost of managing corporate PCs while improving their reliability, security, and usability. The company is led by a veteran team of Boston-area technology executives including: Dan McCall, president and chief executive officer; Alex Vasilevsky, chief technology officer; and Peter Marconi, vice president of engineering.

“Virtualization technology has already yielded clear cost savings and efficiency gains in the data center environment,” said Vasilevsky. “Notebook PCs along with the growth in remote workers represent a huge challenge for IT organizations looking to take advantage of the productivity gains available from virtualization. Virtual Computer will be the first to deliver on the promise of desktop virtualization without compromising on cost, performance, mobility, or end-user experience.”

“We have combined a powerhouse engineering team of virtualization, management, and security experts with a customer-driven development methodology,” noted McCall. “With overwhelmingly-positive feedback on our alpha product from both the US and Europe, we are evaluating plans to accelerate product introduction.”

Virtual Computer is located in Westford (MA), in the heart of the Rt. 495 technology corridor. Currently, the company is in a rapid growth phase and hiring in all areas of engineering, sales, and marketing.
