Embarcadero Performance Center 2.0 Will Extend 24 X 7 Database Monitoring Software to IBM DB2 Universal Database for Linux, Unix and Windows (LUW)

<p>Upcoming Release of Performance Monitoring Solution Demonstrates Company’s Commitment to Provide Customers the Most Comprehensive Database Capabilities for Heterogeneous Environments</p>
<p>Melbourne, Australia – May 16, 2006 Embarcadero® Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: EMBT), a leading provider of strategic data management (SDM) solutions, announced today plans to extend its award-winning 24x7 database performance monitoring to IBM DB2, the most widely used database platform. Performance Center will offer organisations the same customisable thresholds, highly readable status notification, and proactive alerting to DB2 customers it already provides to Oracle, Sybase, and Microsoft SQL Server customers. With comprehensive performance monitoring for all major database platforms, DBAs will be able to quickly identify performance problems that threaten availability across all major database platforms in one enterprise view, dramatically simplifying the problem of cross-platform database management. Embarcadero Performance Center will be available in the second quarter of 2006.</p>
<p>According to a recent study by Gartner1, more organisations (19.0%) have plans to deploy DB2 than any other database platforms. For all of these new and for existing DB2 deployments, DBAs will need monitoring solutions that help them manage complex environments without increasing the workload. With its non-invasive architecture, easily customised alerting, and clear reporting, Performance Center allows DB2 DBAs to quickly identify bottlenecks and drill-down on specific problems without incurring maintenance costs. The Embarcadero "Health Index" in Performance Center rolls up key statistics into one indicator for at-a-glance performance information. Preconfigured templates for alarm thresholds and notifications as well as user-defined escalation paths simplify the implementation of standard operating procedures for increased efficiency.</p>
<p>Noted Noel Yuhanna, Forrester senior analyst, in a recent report, “Demand for automation will increase. Enterprises will continue to focus on automation and standardisation to improve the operational efficiency of their database environments.” (“Trends 2006: Database Management Systems,” January 12, 2006).</p>
<p>“Many of our customers who are already using Performance Center with other platforms would like to be able to consolidate database performance monitoring into one solution,” said Greg Keller, vice president of product management at Embarcadero Technologies. “With Performance Center 2.0, these customers will be able to see how more of their databases are performing and understand specific issues that might cause downtime from a single solution. This will simplify monitoring for all of their key databases.”</p>
