Reveals Integrated Monitoring Solution
Provides Complete Database and Operating System Monitoring
HOUSTON February 20, 2003 Bradmark
Technologies, Inc., an established provider of enterprise monitoring
and database administration tools, today announced the completion
of a 10-year investment in the development of an integrated
interface for database administrators to monitor Oracle, Sybase,
Microsoft SQL Server and IBM DB2 databases.
"We developed NORAD from the ground
up," says Brad Tashenberg, Chairman and CEO of Bradmark. "We
didnt purchase a diverse set of products from separate
companies, repackage and bundle them together to call them
an integrated suite. Our distributed system, database and operating
system monitoring solution has been in production for a number
of years. Over that time, in response to market demand we have
added support for new databases and enhanced product functionality.
Our customers can invest with confidence in a mature, reliable
system that utilizes a common framework through which all of
its functionality has been integrated."
NORAD is a fully integrated suite
of tools designed to help the DBA monitor and maintain a single
relational database environment or an enterprise of hundreds
of disparate servers and databases. The underlying architecture
utilizes an intelligent agent model, which is connected through
a flexible console structure and CORBA-like middleware connectivity
NORAD® Surveillance™ plays
the role of an early warning system, performing real-time monitoring
of the database or operating system environment, historical
monitoring for future analysis, event management, monitoring
through a rules-based structure, and alarming and alerting
to notify users of critical problems.
When combined with NORAD® DBControl Online™ the
full functionality of NORAD allows you to maintain your database
online, ensure the highest level of availability, and keep
your system optimized at all times with one product. In a large
heterogeneous environment where many different database applications,
relational database technologies and server platforms coexist,
a product like NORAD is a tremendous asset to the DBA.
NORAD is the most comprehensive product
suite on the market for maintaining database and system availability.
NORAD Surveillance will notify a DBA before something goes
wrong, eliminating unplanned downtime. NORAD DBControl works
online without requiring maintenance windows, which helps reduce
and sometimes eliminate the need for planned downtime. NORAD
Precision Tuning makes code run more efficiently, eliminating
the need for new resources.
