Sun Increases Application Uptime And Return On Storage Investment For Oracle Customers

New Version of Sun HighGround™ Storage Resource Manager Adds Management for Database Storage Resources and Global Reporting

Sun Microsystems, Inc., today announced Sun HighGround™ Storage Resource Manager (SRM) Version 5.0, delivering improved application uptime and return on investment to both Oracle and Sybase customers. The new software builds on the Company's web-based storage resource management application that provides IT managers with critical utilization, consumption and availability data about their enterprise storage. In addition to now incorporating Oracle and Sybase database storage resources, the new software provides consolidated views and alerts of global servers, making it even easier and more effective for Sun's customers.

Over half the storage within corporations today consists of databases for mission-critical applications. By implementing Sun HighGround SRM Version 5.0, Sun's customers have a centralized view of these distributed databases. As a result of improved capacity management and planning, customers gain greater efficiencies, enhanced service levels, and a greater return on investment.
