<p>EMBARCADERO TECHNOLOGIES EXTENDS ADVANCED STORAGE, CAPACITY, AND PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT CAPABILITIES TO MICROSOFT SQL SERVER PLATFORM</p>
<p>Embarcadero Bolsters Cross-Platform Support with DBArtisan Analyst Series for SQL Server and Expanded Functionality for IBM DB2 in DBArtisan 7.3</p>
<p>Melbourne, Australia. —November 6, 2003 — Embarcadero Technologies®, Inc. (Nasdaq: EMBT), a leading provider of application and database lifecycle management solutions, today announced enhanced support for Microsoft® SQL Server professionals with Embarcadero® DBArtisan® 7.3. This new release includes SQL Server support for the DBArtisan Analyst Series products -- DBArtisan Space Analyst, Performance Analyst, and Capacity Analyst. With the addition of advanced SQL analytics and new powerful administration and navigation enhancements for IBM® DB2 z/OS and OS/390, DBArtisan 7.3 provides DBAs with the most complete and integrated set of database management tools, broadening its already extensive, industry-leading support of multiple database platforms.</p>
<p>The Embarcadero DBArtisan Analyst Series for SQL Server delivers comprehensive performance, space, and capacity management functionality for complex database environments. Also available on the Oracle platform, the DBArtisan Analyst Series is seamlessly integrated with DBArtisan so users can leverage DBArtisan’s familiar and easy-to-use graphical user interface. DBAs can access, troubleshoot, and resolve database problems, ensuring improved uptime and reduced costs through enhanced performance. The DBArtisan Analyst Series also provides detailed forecasting capabilities of database resource needs within the enterprise.
“The advanced SQL Server tools that run inside Embarcadero DBArtisan make a huge impact on my daily work schedule,” said Alan Woodling, lead SQL Server DBA for a leading international restaurant chain. “We are a very serious SQL Server shop, and I manage hundreds of SQL Server databases each day using the Embarcadero tool set. I have a limited amount of time to dedicate to diagnosing and correcting space and performance issues. Fortunately, the new Embarcadero DBArtisan Analyst Series for SQL Server takes care of things for me.”
“DBArtisan coupled with DBArtisan Analyst Series lets DBAs be more proactive in how they troubleshoot and resolve key database issues while providing insight into what the future will hold,” said Branden Boag, director APAC for Embarcadero Technologies. “Our products provide DBAs with unparalleled visibility into and control over complex, cross-platform database environments in a straightforward, easy-to-use solution that allows those with less experience to perform like experts.”</p>
<p>Enhanced DB2 Features in DBArtisan 7.3.0 Extend Cross Platform Capabilities
In addition to the SQL Server Analyst products, DBArtisan 7.3 includes enhanced features and functionality for DB2 z/OS and OS/390. The new features offer z/OS and OS/390 users more administration abilities by providing an intuitive interface to execute IBM DB2 utilities. In addition, DB2 z/OS and OS/390 administrators will find improved usability enhancements and support for data sharing in these environments.</p>
<p>DBArtisan 7.3 delivers the industry’s broadest cross-platform support, allowing DBAs to administer ORACLE®, Microsoft SQL Server, IBM DB2 for Windows/Unix/Linux, DB2 z/OS and OS/390, and Sybase® databases from a single console.</p>
<p>“Working with multiple databases, from DB2, Oracle to SQL Server, can be difficult, trying to pull together performance and storage statistics, especially with the huge variations in architectures, commands, and their system objects,” commented Chris Kempster, author of SQL Server 2000 for the Oracle DBA. “DBArtisan 7.3 and the Analyst Series make this divide a simple one to cross, providing essential real-time and historical drill through analysis in all aspects of the DBMS. An essential product for the DBA.”</p>
<p>Embarcadero DBArtisan Performance Analyst
Running inside the Embarcadero DBArtisan, Embarcadero Performance Analyst pinpoints and corrects performance problems threatening a database’s availability or response times. It provides DBAs with a single console view, so they can capture a holistic view of their database and OS environments, enabling them to easily diagnose and repair problems within DBArtisan. Performance Analyst enables users who are new to the Oracle and SQL Server platforms to perform at an expert level.</p>
<p>Embarcadero DBArtisan Space Analyst
Embarcadero Space Analyst provides sophisticated diagnostic capabilities to troubleshoot Oracle and SQL Server bottlenecks and performance problems resulting from space management issues, ensuring optimal utilization of database storage. With these corrective tools, Space Analyst reduces downtime and improves storage performance.</p>
<p>Embarcadero DBArtisan Capacity Analyst
Embarcadero Capacity Analyst offers intelligent insight into the past, current, and future inner-workings of a database. By collecting historical database and performance metrics at user-defined intervals, Capacity Analyst delivers trend analysis along with smart forecasting abilities, allowing DBAs to plan for the future needs of their Oracle and SQL Server databases. With Capacity Analyst, DBAs can proactively manage resources rather than reacting to bottlenecks when problems arise.</p>
