OuterBay releases ADM software
OuterBay Technologies Inc., Campbell, Calif., announced the general availability of its Application Data Management (ADM) Suite, software that monitors and manages data growth to maintain application performance and speed upgrades. The suite is made up of the Application Resource Manager (ARM), Instance Generator and LiveArchive. According to OuterBay, Instance Generator eliminates full-size production database copies, in favor of smaller subsets of the database. LiveArchive improves application performance and reduces the downtime needed for worldwide consolidations and upgrades by managing application data growth. LiveArchive works by identifying inactive application data and moving it onto more cost effective storage where it remains online and accessible to users from their existing application user interface. LiveArchive, the software engine behind OuterBay's Application Data Management Suite, has been commercially available since April 2000.
