Mainline Information Systems
As our customers’ needs have changed, Mainline has evolved with them. Founded in 1989 by Rick Kearney, Mainline began by selling IBM’s midrange products. Within a few years, Mainline was selected to bring the IBM mainframe to the channel, and today Mainline remains one of IBM’s largest resellers of mainframe technology and the storage that attaches to it.
As the industry began to shift toward open systems, Mainline responded by expanding its product portfolio and technical expertise to provide solutions that solved our customers’ IT challenges. Mainline became an industry-leading provider of Intel-based solutions incorporating IBM System x, BladeCenter and VMware Virtualization. Mainline became VMware’s first National Premier Partner and was named the 2009 VMware Global VDI Partner of the Year. In late 2010, Mainline added the HP product portfolio to its offerings as a way to reach a broader audience with its well-respected solutions. Recognized by HP as an Elite Virtualization and Elite Storage partner; Mainline provides configuration, sizing, and implementation services across the HP server, storage and networking product lines.
In 2012, Mainline made a strategic decision to invest in IBM Smarter Analytics and launched a business practice dedicated to area. To accelerate our expertise and add to the depth of our team, Mainline acquired Software By Design, a boutique analytics reseller and services provider.
Today, Mainline is a nationally recognized solution provider with a certified team of sales and technical professionals who have the skills, product knowledge and commitment to help clients develop and implement the right solutions to solve business needs.
