BMC and ActiveBase Speed Database Recovery

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From eWeek]

BMC Software Inc. and ActiveBase Ltd. are coming out with new ways to recover faster from database crash and burn.

Houston-based BMC this week will announce seven new data management tools for IBM's DB2 database management system running in both mainframe and distributed environments.

Recovery Management for DB2 1.1 features automatic selection of optimally efficient recovery strategies. The tool also allows DBAs (database administrators) to run simulations to discover how long and how many resources it would take to recover a given database configuration. Four new tool versions for mainframe environments are System Performance for DB2 2, Database Administration for DB2 1.2, Database Performance for DB2 1.1 and Application Performance for DB2 2. On the distributed side, BMC will introduce SQL-BackTrack for DB2 UDB 2 and SQL-Explorer for DB2 UDB 6.0.02.

Separately, ActiveBase, of Givatayim, Israel, last week introduced two new add-on products for Oracle Corp.'s namesake database management system. The first product, called ActiveBalance, automatically keeps the load balanced between all servers of multimode/replicated Oracle databases. ActiveBase also rolled out ActivePool, a tool that speeds up Oracle database application performance, reduces DBMS CPU load, improves the database's response time and increases database servers' capacity, officials said.
