VERITAS Storage Management Software Doubles DB2 Database Performance On AIX Platforms

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From PR Newswire]

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- VERITAS Software Corporation (Nasdaq: VRTS), the leading storage software company, announced today the availability of VERITAS Database Edition(TM) for DB2 for the first time on the IBM AIX platform. VERITAS Database Edition for DB2 integrates core volume management and file system technologies specifically optimized to make DB2 databases perform up to two times faster, more highly available and easier to manage. Using VERITAS Database Edition for DB2 helps database administrators to meet demanding service-level expectations while reducing the cost and effort of managing growing amounts of data. The product joins an extensive suite of VERITAS storage software for the IBM AIX platform.

"As DB2 gains ground in the distributed database market, it is increasingly used in mission-critical environments with high service-level requirements," said Carl Olofson, program director, IDC. "DB2 customers have a growing need for simplified, optimized storage and around-the-clock availability solutions such as those provided by VERITAS Software."

VERITAS Database Edition for DB2 offers raw partition performance and data integrity for databases stored in file systems, freeing administrators from the difficulties of managing raw partition databases. Using the product's cached VERITAS Quick I/O(TM) feature, DB2 performance is up to two times faster than the same database stored on a standard UNIX file system, and is comparable to or faster than raw partition database performance.
