Sybase is on hand at
Macworld Conference & Expo to demo Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE) 12.5.1, which is available now with prices starting at US$1,495. This new release of the company’s enterprise-class relational database management system has been updated to take advantage of the performance enhancements found in Mac OS X Server v.10.3 (Panther).
ASE 12.5.1 supports large data sets and increased data volumes more efficiently and operational scalability was improved with the implementation of scalable logging, parallel recovery, index sampling, temporary databases per application or login, and improved database reorganization. In addition, the update takes advantage of Panther’s support for asynchronous disk I/O and increased addressable memory and includes such new features as self-management, automatic resource management, and transportable databases.
“We performed a full range of real world tests on production databases used by our applications, comparing Sybase ASE running on a Power Mac G5 against various configurations from other vendors,” said David Knight, CEO of OneStep Solutions Plc, a leader in debt recovery solutions for local government, legal and commercial organizations. “ASE 12.5.1 on Mac OS X v.10.3 beat the others on price/performance by a factor of three.”
Sybase is at booth #1548 during Macworld Expo.
