Surveillance™ for Sybase Now Includes Support for Sybase Mirror Activator

— Bradmark strengthens its offering of third-party tools for the Sybase database environment—

HOUSTON, TX — July 31, 2007 — Bradmark Technologies, Inc., an established provider of enterprise monitoring and database administration tools, announces the availability of Surveillance™ for Sybase® Mirror Activator™, Sybase’s business continuity solution. Sybase Mirror Activator works in conjunction with storage replication systems to replicate database transactions from a mirrored log to an available Sybase Adaptive Server® Enterprise (ASE) or Oracle® database. Surveillance™ for Sybase Mirror Activator provides monitoring and alerting capabilities that enhance replication data reliability and performance.

" Customers have asked for visibility into the operation of Sybase Mirror Activator," said Bradley Tashenberg, Bradmark’s President and CEO. “Bradmark’s Surveillance MA monitors key metrics to maximize the operational efficiency of Sybase Mirror Activator.” With Surveillance MA agents in place, DBAs can now be sure that the databases are being replicated and the environment is running at peak performance.”

Sybase Mirror Activator leverages the best attributes of disk mirroring and transactional replication, ensuring transactional consistency while dramatically reducing failover time for database applications. It manages a live, standby database that is available within seconds, versus hours of time-to-recovery required by cold standby systems.

“ Surveillance for Sybase Mirror Activator further demonstrates Bradmark’s commitment of providing the best-of-breed monitoring solution for Sybase customers,” said Karen Frederiksen, director, database infrastructure development technologies, Sybase. “Together we deliver the benefits of our business continuity solution, including disaster recovery support and increased data availability, enabling organizations to protect their mission-critical applications”.

In addition to Sybase Mirror Activator support, Bradmark provides a complete monitoring solution for the entire Sybase environment, including tools for Sybase ASE and Replication Server and Sybase IQ. Bradmark's Surveillance implements a scalable, agent-based architecture to suit every organization’s unique environment. The server agents occupy very small footprints, usually as low as 2 percent of the system resources and have minimal impact on network traffic. Users can utilize a standard set of rules or create customized rules and alerts for every conceivable condition and organizational structure.

Tashenberg noted, "This is a key strategic direction that reinforces our commitment to our partnership with Sybase." Surveillance is available direct from Sybase or through its worldwide network of distributors.
