NASHVILLE, TN, Oracle Applications Users Group COLLABORATE 06 Conference, April
25, 2006 - Texas Memory Systems, Inc., manufacturer of the World's Fastest
Storage® and Confio Software, a leading innovator of Application Performance
Management software, today announced a partnership designed to help Oracle
customers further improve application performance. Under the agreement, Confio
IgniteT software is now available for free download through the Texas Memory
Systems' web site.
Confio Ignite for Oracle is used by DBAs to conclusively identify the root
causes of Oracle database performance problems and identify the specific
application code, database configuration or file location creating the problem.
By identifying the detailed cause of performance issues and suggesting steps
for resolution, users can better determine whether faster storage is the
Texas Memory Systems' RamSan solid state storage is used to accelerate
Oracle-based enterprise applications like OLTP databases, batch processes, and
data warehouses up to 2500%. By eliminating I/O bottlenecks, RamSan solid state
disks allow DBAs to dramatically increase the number of concurrent users and
simultaneous transactions handled by the database while using fewer servers.
Solid state disks also mitigate the need for constant software tuning to
achieve higher performance.
"DBAs often turn to Texas Memory Systems' solid state disks to improve
performance when software tuning is not possible, is too time consuming or is
resulting in diminishing returns." said Woody Hutsell, Executive Vice President
at Texas Memory Systems. "We believe the Ignite software will help DBAs make
informed decisions about when to integrate our solid state disks."
"Confio's software enables planning of capital expenditures based on true needs
for database operation, rather than relying on excess capacity to cover up
database inefficiencies," said Don Bergal, Chief Operating Officer at Confio
Software. "There are many cases where faster storage, not additional storage
capacity or more servers, is the prudent solution."
"Oracle databases are all about delivering data and I/O is the single most
time-consuming operation in any Oracle database," said Don Burleson, Oracle
tuning expert and author of over 30 Oracle books. "The dovetail combination of
Confio and TMS provides a soup-to-nuts solution for identifying and correcting
the root cause of common performance issues, Confio's Ignite tool quickly
locates I/O bottlenecks and then TMS provides the high-speed hardware to
alleviate the blockage. It's a marriage made in Heaven."
