Confio Introduces Ignite 8.2 at COLLABORATE

Confio Software introduced its Ignite 8.2 database performance software during last week's COLLABORATE Conference in Las Vegas. The rapidly-growing company based in Boulder, Colo., has tripled in size during the past 3 years, delivering tools that identify, pinpoint and resolve pain points in Oracle, SQL Server, DB2, and Sybase under the theme of "Keep it simple and get to the problem in four clicks."

The new version of Ignite 8.2 includes enhanced features offering expanded support for Oracle Exadata, RAC and ASM, as well as for SQL Server and Sybase. In general, the Confio approach has been to focus attention on exceptions via a dashboard that highlights increasing user "wait time" - or how long users are waiting on a query. For the Oracle Exadata, RAC and ASM user, the monitoring features offered in Ignite 8.2 are completely new and deliver new tools that manage these high performance Oracle options.

SQL Server DBAs are expected to benefit from enhanced advice on resolving problems, as well as graphical analysis of execution plans and dashboard enhancements that prioritize exceptions that as they change. In addition, Sybase users now have new statistics and execution charts from Ignite.

Overall, Ignite 8.2 enables greater ease in tracking any resource or business process metric through highly customizable monitoring charts across all database types. Ignite 8.2 will also be of greater value to global customers through its multi-byte character support of special interest to Chinese, Japanese and Korean installations. "DBAs are managing more instances and need a tool that first tells them where to focus attention. Ignite 8.2 then gets right to the root cause of the problem and speed of resolution is what it is all about with Ignite," Don Bergal, the chief marketing officer for Confio, said at COLLABORATE.
