FRAMINGHAM (01/26/2000) - BMC Software Inc. last week unveiled two software tools for recovering from database errors.
Resolve High-Speed Transaction Recovery lets systems managers recover DB2 databases running on mainframes.
The software can restore a database to a previous point in time, erasing specific transactions that corrupted the database.
The software is shipping now starting at $80,000. Resolve SQL Backtrack for Oracle can quickly take a snapshot of a database, then perform a backup while the database continues to perform normally.
The idea is to reduce the time the database is unreachable. The software will ship in March.
Appliant.com last week introduced a service for monitoring the performance and availability of Web sites.
The Lateral Line Network service uses monitoring agents on clients and servers to measure network delay, server response time and time spent rendering Web pages. The service starts at $1,500 per month.

IBM Corp. has reorganized its SecureWay security software business, bringing it under the umbrella of the Tivoli network management group.
IBM also says it is integrating its Intraverse single sign-on product, which it acquired last year from Dascom, into the Tivoli network management system. In addition, Intraverse will be integrated into future editions of IBM middleware, including MQSeries.
