Precise Software Solutions announced that EMC Corp. will license Precise's technology for EMC's CLARiiON information storage systems under EMC's private-label name of ControlCenter Database Tuner for CLARiiON.
"We are delighted with the continued expansion of our highly successful relationship with EMC," said Andrew Bird, executive vice president of Marketing for Precise Software Solutions. "Taking this next step with EMC is precisely in line with our strategy of expanding platform and technology coverage, and extending the reach of Precise Application Performance Management solutions into storage subsystems."
According to Precise, the relationship between Precise and EMC was established in 1999, when EMC began reselling Precise's performance management software technology under the Database Tuner name for EMC's Symmetrix Enterprise Storage systems.
"Working with Precise, we look forward to offering the same leading-edge software technology for CLARiiON as we have for the Symmetrix environment," said George Mele, EMCs director of Software Marketing. "DBTuner for CLARiiON offers CLARiiON customers a great opportunity to benefit from Precise's outstanding performance management solution. While our Symmetrix family extends EMC's value outward from the data center, CLARiiON extends our value upward from distributed and decentralized environments. This agreement enhances our continued commitment to help customers derive higher performance and business value by managing information effectively, giving them faster and easier access to knowledge wherever it may be located, from far-flung networked branch operations to the heart of their IT operation."
