Embarcadero Launches Multi-platform, ToolCloud-Enabled DBArtisan XE


Industry’s first heterogeneous database administration toolset with centralized on-demand deployment and licensing

SAN FRANCISCO – March 24, 2010 — Embarcadero Technologies today introduced DBArtisan® XE, the newest addition to the DBArtisan family of heterogeneous database administration tools. With support for multiple database platforms “out of the box,” DBArtisan XE empowers database administrators (DBA) to maximize the performance, availability and security of any and all of their databases, regardless of database type, from a single interface. DBArtisan XE also provides optimum on-demand tool manageability with Embarcadero® ToolCloud™.

DBArtisan XE helps database administrators manage and optimize the schema, security, performance and availability of all their their databases. With powerful database monitors, intelligent diagnostic information and strong drill-down details, DBArtisan enables users to quickly get to the heart of their database issues and take the necessary steps to resolve them faster. DBArtisan XE also enables DBAs to analyze, debug and optimize SQL to maximize database performance and availability.

Designed to save time and operational costs related to using and managing software tools, DBArtisan XE is the first Embarcadero product to include Embarcadero ToolCloud as a standard feature. ToolCloud provides centralized licensing and provisioning plus on-demand tool deployment to improve tool manageability for IT organizations with multiple users of DBArtisan. Embarcadero® InstantOn™, also included with DBArtisan XE, gives DBAs click-and-run access from anywhere on their network with zero-install requirements on their local machines.

“DBAs worry about whether or not they have a license for a particular platform, and about the time required to learn how to use new administration tools from multiple suppliers – they shouldn’t have to be concerned about these things,” said Michael Swindell, senior vice president of marketing and products, Embarcadero Technologies. “With DBArtisan XE, DBAs have access to a single toolset from which to manage all of their databases and with ToolCloud they have instant access to their tools from anywhere on their network. So now DBAs can focus on doing their jobs rather than worrying about the tools they need to get the job done.”

Key features in DBArtisan XE include:
• True “out of the box” heterogeneous support for all major database management systems, including Oracle®, SQL Server®, IBM® DB2®, Sybase® and MySQL® from a single interface
• Schema, security, performance and data management
• Deep, native database platform and version support for greater control and accuracy than that provided by DBA tools that rely on simple ODBC or JDBC interfaces
• Centralized license management and on-demand tool access and deployment with Embarcadero ToolCloud
• Run tools without installing locally; avoid conflicts when running multiple versions with Embarcadero InstantOn
• The optional Embarcadero Analyst Pack provides additional tools for performance, space and capacity planning for large database environments to help establish proper backup and recovery plans, improve uptime, quality of service, resource allocation and avoid costly mishaps.

In addition, DBArtisan XE helps to effectively establish and maintain database security throughout a database environment. With DBArtisan XE, DBAs can manage users, roles, privileges and password security, and migrate accounts between the same or different database platforms. Because DBArtisan XE manages database security across different types of databases, DBAs can take a consistent, simplified approach to security even in the most complex heterogeneous environments.
