AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 12, 2007 - After passing the test suite on the first run-through, Ease Software, Inc.'s SATA-on-AIX drives (http://www.easesoftware.com) have earned the coveted Ready for IBM DB2 data server software distinction.
"We are extremely pleased to have been named Ready for IBM
DB2 data server software by IBM," stated Perry Smith, Ease Software president. "This designation is proof that we can beat on our system with the DB2 validation suite and pass it. As a result, IBM itself has recognized Ease Software and our SATA-on-AIX system as a valid solution for its DB2 customers."
And that is good news for DB2 users. SATA-on-AIX's Ready for
DB2 data server software validation means clients can have the high performance of directly attached disks equal to SCSI and SAS, the mammoth sizes usually associated with SAN and Fibre, and the extremely low costs usually associated with PC and Linux systems - all on a stable SATA-on-AIX drive.
Those concerned about support need not worry. Ease Software is adopting IBM's original model of customer service. The company provides support for its software for free, forever - no catch, no gimmicks. If a SATA-on-AIX system breaks, Ease Software will fix it because, as Smith explained, the company thinks it's high time customers expect their computers to work again.
"We know customers running DB2 on AIX machines have very high demands. They need their systems to work one hundred percent of the time," said Smith. "They need it fast. And they need whatever they use to fit in with everything else they use. SATA-on-AIX meets all those demands, with the Ready for IBM DB2 data server software designation and our commitment to industry-leading support to back it up."
