  • 01 September, 2004 10:50

<p>Latest Release Enables Viewing of Database Performance Metrics Anytime, Anywhere Through Web Client; Provides Agent-less Support for UNIX and Linux Operating Systems</p>
<p>Melbourne, Australia – 1 September, 2004 – Embarcadero Technologies®, Inc. (Nasdaq: EMBT), a provider of data lifecycle management solutions, today announced the release of Embarcadero Performance Center™ 1.9, an industrial-strength monitoring solution for managing data and database infrastructures. A server-based solution, Performance Center 1.9 allows databases administrators (DBAs) to monitor the health of their databases from any computer with Internet access, eliminating the need to install monitoring software on various desktops.</p>
<p>Additionally, this latest release includes the ability to monitor Unix and Linux operating systems without the use of agents. This allows DBAs to not only monitor their databases, but also the performance of the underlying operating system as well. With Performance Center 1.9, systems administrators and database professionals have an out-of-the-box monitoring solution that is non-invasive on installation, offers 24x7-coverage, and ensures that their critical databases – and the systems housing them – enjoy maximum uptime, availability, and performance.</p>
<p>“Having the right monitoring solution is essential for day-to-day IT operations. Constant monitoring of our database performance and availability is essential for meeting service-level objectives,” said Lee Harville, database analyst at University Hospital in Augusta, Georgia. “Embarcadero Performance Center allows us to constantly watch the health of our Oracle®, Sybase®, and Microsoft SQL Server® databases, helps identify hotspots, and allows us to proactively take necessary actions. With Embarcadero Performance Center we can continuously fine-tune our databases and make corrections to avoid downtime and ensure high levels of service quality.”</p>
<p>Performance Center 1.9 now ships with a web client, allowing DBAs or systems administrators to use any standard web browser to view the performance metrics of all databases they are monitoring. Additionally, the new Performance Center web client is fully integrated into Embarcadero DBArtisan® so DBAs can view performance issues from the familiar console of their award-winning database administration tool. Performance Center 1.9 also provides operating system support and analysis for UNIX and Linux without the use of agents. This allows databases administrators to more fully protect their database systems by identifying problems on the actual database server machines.</p>
<p>“Increasing complexity of database infrastructures and rapidly growing data volumes force database and IT professionals to resort to more sophisticated solutions,” said Robin Schumacher, vice president of product management at Embarcadero Technologies. “What database professionals need are clear and concise methods for ensuring the viability of every database system they manage. Performance Center 1.9, combined with Embarcadero’s suite of data lifecycle management solutions, delivers quicker insights into business operations by speeding analysis so that DBAs can more proactively manage opportunities and risks that impact the bottom line.”</p>
