Enterprise Database Archiving Reduces Storage and Maintenance while Improving System Performance.

Sunnyvale, CA April 2, 2008–Solix Technologies, a leading global provider of database archiving and enterprise data management solutions that helps companies meet compliance requirements and achieve Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) goals today announced that TIBCO, a provider of enterprise software that helps companies achieve service-oriented architecture (SOA) and business process management (BPM) success has successfully implemented Solix Enterprise Data Management Suite (Solix EDMS) for Oracle database archiving to reduce the overall size of their production database, increase application performance and lower total cost of data ownership.

Headquartered in Palo Alto, California, TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ:TIBX) provides enterprise software that helps companies achieve service-oriented architecture (SOA) and business process management (BPM) success. With over 3,000 customers and offices in 20 countries, TIBCO has given leading organizations around the world better awareness and agility-what TIBCO calls The Power of Now®.

Maintaining good throughput for order entry, accounts receivable processing and quarter end reporting is critical to ensuring TIBCO financial teams are not impacted by software performance issues. Recognizing the effect of data growth on throughout and reporting performance as well as the downstream implications of maintaining a large production database in making clones for test and development and Disaster Recovery copies, TIBCO undertook database archiving. Database archiving is a proven technique to reduce the size of production databases resulting in faster clones during migration, testing, development and disaster recovery cycles and reducing storage costs throughout the entire IT infrastructure.

“We are always looking at ways to optimize our core systems” said Alan Bianchi, Director of Financial Applications at TIBCO, “as we move to Linux and version migration, having a smaller data set will make the job easier and reduce risk. Further savings in data maintenance and storage while increasing performance make archiving a good choice moving forward.”

Using Solix Enterprise Database Archiving, TIBCO automated the process for archiving and purging of historical data from Oracle Financials. By implementing Solix Enterprise Database Archiving, TIBCO reduced the overall size of their production system, kept data growth in-check and improved the overall manageability of the system. By minimizing data growth, TIBCO will be able to lower storage costs and improve overall system and reporting performance.

Shekhar Dasgupta, President and COO of Solix Technologies, said, “Solix EDMS for Enterprise Database Archiving provides TIBCO the means to lower storage and data management costs and deliver optimal system performance to Its customers”
