EMC Broadens Database Support


EMC Corporation today announced the extension of its EMC ControlCenter(TM) Database Tuner performance management software to include support for EMC CLARiiON(R) storage systems in Oracle database environments, and the addition of IBM DB2 UDB support for EMC Symmetrix(R) Enterprise Storage systems.

According to EMC, Database Tuner automatically collects, correlates and presents database mapping and performance information that can be customized for use by database administrators, system administrators and storage managers.

"Virtually all mission-critical applications, such as ERP, CRM, OLTP, e-business and data warehousing, are deployed on a relational database such as DB2 UDB or Oracle," said Chuck Hollis, EMC Vice President of Markets and Products. "By efficiently enabling database, system and storage administrators to improve the performance of Oracle and IBM database applications, Database Tuner helps raise the return on investment of not only the database applications, but also customers' host platforms and EMC storage systems at the same time."

Database Tuner is a component of EMC ControlCenter, EMC's family of software for managing enterprise information infrastructures. With the introduction of Database Tuner support for the CLARiiON family of storage systems, the software also becomes the latest addition to the Navisphere(R) suite of CLARiiON-based management software tools.
