Virtual Access Networks manufactures The Van, an XML, XSLT, SOAP and Cocoon-based solution that utilizes Microsoft's Intellimirror PC Migration technology to enable companies to move settings and data from one computer to another intact, via a wireless, Web or network connection. The VAN's software migration tools can be used to restore user settings after an operating system upgrade or facilitate the OS migration of an entire company. A hard drive crash inspired the founder to use extensible tools to apply fluid solutions to the field of data storage. The resulting XML-based core technology is known as Access Technology and defined as "the vendor-neutral, device-agnostic, and cross-platform delivery of information and data."
