Vyatta Offers Discount Based on Cisco Gross Profit

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

BELMONT, CA--(Marketwire - July 27, 2009) - Vyatta, the leader in open networking and network virtualization, today announced a special discount on all Vyatta service and support subscriptions. Starting today, customers can register on the Vyatta site for a discount code redeemable against the purchase of up to two Vyatta subscriptions. The size of the discount will depend on the size of Cisco's gross profit margin, calculated after Cisco announces its earnings on August 5, 2009. During a similar promotion last quarter, Vyatta customers were able to purchase Vyatta subscriptions for 64 percent of list price -- a 36 percent discount.

What:   Register now to receive a discount on Vyatta subscriptions. On
        August 5, all registrants will receive a discount code good for the
        purchase of up to two Vyatta subscriptions. The size of the
        discount depends upon the size of Cisco's Q2 '09 gross profit
        margin. The lower Cisco's gross profit margin, the more you save.

Where:  Go to http://www.vyatta.com/promo/gross.php 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, August 5.
        Registrants will then have until 5:00pm PDT on Friday, August 14 to
        purchase discounted subscriptions.

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 at a fraction of the cost of proprietary networking
