Racemi Provides Added Value to Datacenters by Taking Advantage of the Sun Solaris(TM) Dynamic Tracing Capabilities

ATLANTA, Dec. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Racemi, Inc. announced today support for Solaris(TM) Dynamic Tracing (DTrace), an advanced tracing tool in the Solaris(TM) 10 Operating System (OS), allowing IT personnel to define coherent and accurate policies based on a far broader set of instrumentation than is available in any other operating system.

ATLANTA, Dec. 3 /PRNewswire/ — Racemi, Inc. announced today support for Solaris(TM) Dynamic Tracing (DTrace), an advanced tracing tool in the Solaris(TM) 10 Operating System (OS), allowing IT personnel to define coherent and accurate policies based on a far broader set of instrumentation than is available in any other operating system.

Enterprises seeking scalable application performance have traditionally deployed dedicated servers with CPU and memory capacities exceeding expected peak demands. With server infrastructures often drastically underutilized, IT organizations are consolidating them to reduce costs, making server mobility one of the more promising areas within the virtualization space.

Racemi's DynaCenter(R) is a server mobility solution that allows IT organizations to repurpose servers in minutes. DynaCenter allows IT organizations to capture and modify server images and store them in a NAS or SAN-based image repository. DynaCenter's policy engine then leverages user- defined rules to decide where and when server repurposing is necessary to meet application processing demand. As demand increases, an application can be booted onto a larger server. If deployed in an environment utilizing server farms, additional servers can be quickly deployed to meet rising demands. DynaCenter provides IT organizations with cost effective solutions for initiatives such as Disaster Recovery, Data Center Consolidation and Rapid Recovery.

The Solaris Dynamic Tracing framework provides a comprehensive view of the operating system and application behavior with an unprecedented level of detail giving access to over 30,000 probes built into the OS kernel. DTrace provides insight to the server's applications, operating system and infrastructure that expedites troubleshooting, monitoring and performance tuning. Solaris Dynamic Tracing is safe to use on development, test, and production systems and makes it very easy to monitor valuable execution parameters that are specific to enterprise applications' operating environment and connect the application behavior to the underlining infrastructure. When used in support of scalable performance requirements, DTrace helps enhance the ability to react efficiently when an application requires additional processing capacity.

"The combination of DynaCenter and DTrace allows IT personnel to define coherent and accurate policies using a far broader set of instrumentation than is available in any other operating system, thanks to the visibility DTrace gives of the overall infrastructure and application behavior" said Richard Stansbury, CEO of Racemi. "In short, we deliver on-demand server scalability through more sophisticated policies based on far deeper levels of application and OS instrumentation delivered by DTrace. As a result IT organizations gain a truly cost effective means of providing scalable processing power in support of critical business applications based on highly sophisticated analytics."

"Sun puts a lot of effort and resources into creating the best instrumented and manageable platform available to customers today," said Amir Raz, Market segment manager at Sun Microsystems. "We expect the combination of Solaris manageability and Racemi's DynaCenter capabilities to enable data center managers and application owners to maximize their investment in infrastructure."
