Bradmark Announces the Release of Surveillance 4.1

Building on its offering of premier, third-party monitoring tools, this release of Bradmark’s Surveillance contains major enhancements that bolster Bradmark’s position as the leading provider of database monitoring and management solutions.

HOUSTON, Texas — May 12, 2008 — Bradmark Technologies, Inc., an established provider of enterprise monitoring and database administration tools, today announces the upcoming release of Surveillance™ version 4.1, which includes major enhancements to improve performance and reliability when monitoring Sybase, Oracle, DB2 UDB and MS SQL Server environments. Version 4.1 highlights major new features including Enterprise Deployment, Standard Stores, Sybase® Adaptive Server® Enterprise (ASE), Windows Vista support, and much more.

“ Bradmark’s Surveillance helps us visualize Sybase statistics, making it easier to pickup on periods of heavy usage by end users,” said Denzil Sander, product manager, B.I. Practice in South Africa. “Surveillance is one of those products we needed a long time ago. Having one set of tools that can address monitoring and performance across our database environment was a primary reason that we chose Bradmark.” A business intelligence and data warehousing solutions provider, BI Practice helps organizations transform the quality and intelligence of their business information to achieve optimum business performance.

For large, complex installations, Enterprise Deployment provides a simple, standard way to deploy Surveillance on many machines so organizations can now be up and running more quickly. The Standard Stores feature allows DBAs to start collecting historical data immediately, so that the Surveillance Flashback feature can be used to diagnose recent database problems. Surveillance 4.1 also provides enhancements for Sybase ASE, including support for Query Metrics that helps the DBA to diagnose SQL performance bottlenecks; and the Surveillance client now supports the latest Windows Vista operating system.

“Bradmark works closely with the Sybase user community to determine what the community needs for modern enterprise monitoring tools,” said Sumit Kundu, senior director of product management, Sybase, Inc. “New features released in Surveillance 4.1 reflect Bradmark’s community-driven approach that helps extend its position as a recommended vendor for monitoring and event management technology for Sybase ASE, Replication Server, Mirror Activator and Sybase IQ, which are all key products that implement Sybase’s Unwired Enterprise strategy.”

Surveillance is a real-time monitoring tool capable of overseeing the entire database environment with drill-down capability for quick problem identification. With Surveillance, a database administrator can view real-time performance data without writing scripts, reducing the need for a large, skilled staff to trace problems. Surveillance installs in minutes and, once configured, you can begin monitoring right away.

“ Version 4.1 demonstrates Bradmark’s commitment to broadening and deepening the support for Surveillance customers,” said Brad Tashenberg, CEO, Bradmark Technologies, Inc. “With this new functionality, Bradmark also demonstrates the ability to deliver timely and functionally rich value to our customers.”

Surveillance has an extensive alerting facility that comes with a large set of pre-defined collections, rules, and stores. Right out of the box, the Surveillance can be easily set up to notify multiple DBAs by e-mail, pager, alerts to HP OpenView or Tivoli, pop-up windows, or messages in the Windows Event Log. The DBA can also execute a fix-it job by executing any operating system script or executable, including SQL*Plus and ISQL. The flexible agent architecture allows users to scale to any size configuration and simultaneously monitor multiple database instances from multiple database vendors. With Surveillance, users can monitor their entire Sybase environment from either a single or multiple console configurations with an intuitive graphical user interface.
