Vyatta Targets Cisco Gross Profit

Vyatta Discount Turns Cisco's "Gross" Margin Structure Into a Sweet Deal for Customers

BELMONT, CA--(Marketwire - May 4, 2009) - Vyatta, the leader in open networking and network virtualization, today introduced a special discount offer on all Vyatta service and support subscriptions. Starting today, register on the Vyatta site for a discount code redeemable against the purchase of a Vyatta subscription. The size of the discount will depend on the size of Cisco's gross margin, calculated after Cisco announces earnings on May 6.

What:  For a limited time, users can register to take advantage of
       discounted prices on Vyatta service and support subscriptions. On
       May 6, all registrants will receive a discount code good for the
       purchase of a Vyatta subscription at a substantially discounted
       rate. The size of the discount all depends on the size of Cisco's
       gross profit margin. If Cisco's gross margin equals 63 percent,
       discount code holders will pay only 63 percent of list price for a
       Vyatta subscription (a 37 percent discount!). The lower Cisco's
       gross profit margin, the more you save.

Where: Go to http://www.vyatta.com/promo/ to register for your Vyatta
       subscription discount today.

When:  Registration is open now. All registrants will receive a discount
       code after Cisco announces its earnings on Wednesday, May 6. The
       discount is good for subscription purchases through Friday, May 8
       at 5:00pm PT.

Why:  Cisco has one of the largest gross profit margins in the IT
      industry. In today's recessionary economic climate, Vyatta believes
      customers should have access to a reasonably priced alternative. And
      open networking provides just that -- all the performance and
      functionality of at a fraction of the cost.
