PHD Virtual's Noonan said his company will be integrating the data protection and disaster recovery technologies from both companies into a single product over the next 12 to 18 months.
However, he said, the VirtualSharp product will continue to be available as a stand-alone offering for customers using other data protection software. "We believe the two can and should be available separately," he said.
PHD Virtual also plans to introduce bundled pricing for customers and solution providers in the near future, he said.
Over 60 percent of PHD Virtual's sales go through indirect channel sales, whereas all of VirtualSharp's sales are through solution providers, Noonan said. PHD Virtual has met with partners regarding the two product lines and expects its direct sales force to take on the VirtualSharp line over time.
