Sybase and Bradmark Advance Database
Management Performance

Sybase and Bradmark announce Surveillance DB for Sybase ASE 15,
simplifying database management by providing a real-time view of database activity along with powerful event management and historical reporting.

DUBLIN, Calif. — April 3, 2006 — Sybase, Inc. (NYSE: SY), a leading provider of enterprise infrastructure and mobile software, and Bradmark Technologies, Inc., an established provider of enterprise monitoring and database administration tools, announced Surveillance DB for Sybase® Adaptive Server® Enterprise (ASE) 15, Sybase’s enterprise-class RDBMS. Bradmark’s Surveillance DB for Sybase ASE simplifies database management by providing a real-time view of database activity across the enterprise, detailed performance metrics and automated tools for increased performance.

“ We look to Sybase for help in maintaining mission critical data and applications that are needed to support the planning and operations of 13 digital movie channels airing more than 750 movies per month, and advanced services such as Starz on Demand and Vongo,” said Nancy Dreisbach, manager of database administration, Starz. “It is gratifying to see Bradmark’s commitment to work with Sybase to protect our investment in a heterogeneous database environment. Having one set of tools that can address monitoring and performance across our database environment was a primary reason that Starz chose Bradmark a couple years ago.” Starz Entertainment Group, a joint Sybase-Bradmark customer, is the largest provider of premium movie services in the United States and, like many large corporations, has a multi-vendor database environment that has been built, purchased or inherited over the years.

Bradmark’s Surveillance DB for Sybase ASE simplifies database management by providing detailed statistics on session and process activity, locked sessions, batch contention, file I/O and much more, which can all be viewed simultaneously for multiple databases. It is shipped with a set of pre-defined rules that can be easily configured, and can utilize statistics available from Monitor Server, DBCC or the new MDA monitor views. Surveillance is configured to look for error conditions or performance issues and send alerts to the DBA team as well as to initiate scripts to correct problems. The Surveillance central history database provides a repository from which historical reports can be produced for after-the-fact performance analysis and troubleshooting, as well as capacity planning for all monitored databases on the network.

“ As a strategic partner for Sybase, the Bradmark developers have spent an extensive amount of time listening to both Sybase and its user community on what they want in database management tools, and have delivered upon those needs,” said Brad Tashenberg, president and CEO of Bradmark Technologies. “By simplifying database management for DBAs with solutions like Surveillance DB for ASE, Bradmark and Sybase are enabling DBAs to focus on more critical tasks while ensuring the performance of their ASE system.”

Sybase ASE 15 is a high-performance database management system that lowers both costs and risks, and gives Sybase customers an operational advantage. Key features include on-disk encryption, smart partitions and new, patented query processing technology that has demonstrated a significant increase in performance, as well as enhanced support for unstructured data management. Sybase ASE 15 meets the increasing demands of large databases and high transaction volumes, while providing a cost effective database management system.
