SPRINGFIELD, IL - May 17, 2005 - Levi, Ray & Shoup, Inc. (LRS), a leader in print output management solutions, today announced the release of VPSX Enterprise Output Management for the Sun Solaris(TM) 10 Operating System (OS) on all supported platforms.

"LRS invented network printing for mainframes in 1981 and today 75 percent of mainframes in North America run LRS VPS software," said John Runions, Global Alliances Manager for LRS. "We bring decades of experience to Sun's open, low cost computing platforms. Now, mission critical output management is available on easy to deploy, cost effective entry-level servers that scale to thousands of printers.

LRS' VPSX technology provides multi-platform power and flexibility with Solaris 10, via proactive capabilities that assure output delivery, capture and track output from any platforms or application, and provide proactive alerts about printer issues. VPSX customers benefit from a powerful solution that delivers output regardless of format, destination device, and originating operating system. Other VPSX benefits include extensive capabilities to manage and control printing costs, reduce reprints and support calls, as well as encrypt and compress sensitive documents ensuring fast return on investment with low total cost of ownership.

"Solaris 10 running on an x64 Sun Fire server is an ideal solution for the print and file server market, delivering a cost-effective entry level system built on a robust platform. Customers will also have the flexibility to run VPSX on over 350 non-Sun x86 servers now certified to run Solaris 10," said Stephen Borcich, vice president of partner marketing, Sun Microsystems, Inc.
