REDWOOD CITY, Calif., June 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Versant (Nasdaq: VSNT) today announced public availability of "Vitness", a SOA-ready add-on module for the monitoring of its flagship product, Versant Object Database. The ability to observe production systems is a cornerstone to the proper establishment of an adequate System & Network Management policy. Using Versant Vitness to observe deployed Versant Object Database environments provides Versant's customers with a fundamental tool for database administration operations and decisions.
Vitness features proactive database monitoring, which may prevent faults that are unexpectedly generated by a system before impacting availability, as well as supporting system management decisions. The new add-on module delivers real-time views of performance data and analytical monitoring information without having to write scripts, and reduces the need for a large team of skilled staff to trace availability, performance or faults. The Vitness add-on module for the Versant Object Database provides analytical monitoring information at the push of a button so that administrators can solve potential issues before they arise.
Due to a SNMP-based agent, Vitness opens up a myriad of possibilities for SOA (Service-oriented architecture) application designs. The Vitness remote agent resides on the Versant server system, and the Eclipse-based RCP client is packaged with an extensive set of real-time graphical views of database activities and detailed performance metrics. As a result, data from multiple Versant Object Database systems may be viewed simultaneously by a client. In addition, Vitness has an extensive alert and alarm facility that provides a large set of finely adjustable notification capabilities.
"High availability requirements including 24/7 and 99.999% have become more common," says Andreas Renner, Vice President R&D at Versant. "In such environments where the Versant Object Database typically serves as the backbone of the deployed applications, enhanced database management with Vitness leads to a greater confidence level from administrators with managed systems. Versant Vitness delivers analytical monitoring information in real-time, and administrators can proactively take action on potential faults prior to an issue impacting availability of a production system."
The Vitness add-on module is licensed separately on a per server basis. Vitness is only available with recently released Version 188.8.131.52 of the Versant Object Database. For detailed information regarding pricing, please contact a Versant sales representative.
