Software developers and resellers may be leaving the proverbial "money on the table" by omitting the very tools that help applications run better. And it may end up being their businesses that suffer, according to Bill Dunn, managing director of BMC Software Australia, because such tools not only generate more revenue, but also lower support costs.
BMC Software, a developer of application service assurance solutions designed to improve the availability, performance and recovery of business-critical applications, has launched version 2.1 of PATROL DB-Reorg for Informix at the recent Informix Worldwide Users Conference in the US.
"Many of Informix's largest customers worldwide are currently using PATROL DB-Reorg to cost effectively and rapidly reorganise their databases," Dunn said.
"Informix users will now have an efficient way to quickly migrate to newer versions of the Informix database while assuring the data integrity of mission- critical applications."
PATROL DB-Reorg is a high-speed reorganisation utility that allows Informix customers to reorganise entire databases or selected database objects, thereby improving performance and data availability for their applications.
More and more database applications are becoming mission critical and have to be accessible to users for greater periods thereby reducing the time available for database maintenance.
"PATROL DB-Reorg allows our customers to quickly and easily take advantage of Informix Dynamic Server's significant gains in performance and availability with little interruption to the enterprise and without putting existing mission-critical data at risk," said Dan Leighton, executive director of servers and connectivity product management for Informix.
"The new version of PATROL DB-Reorg for Informix provides a high-performance, robust database management tool that cost-effectively and efficiently reorganises and migrates data," he claimed.
PATROL DB-Reorg for Informix is said to also support v5 and v7 and provides pro-active management and high-speed reorganisation of database objects, delivering enhanced database availability and performance and better use of disk space. It is claimed to perform the reorganisations with the fastest tools available.
