Solution-Soft Releases SafeCapacity 3.0

SANTA CLARA, Calif., September 2, 2003 — Solution-Soft Systems Inc, a leading provider of Intelligent Data Optimization solutions (IDO) today announces version 3.0 of SafeCapacityTM, an automated, data life cycle and storage-capacity management solution. SafeCapacity addresses the increasing need for advanced management tools in corporate data centers by providing easy-to-administer storage optimization and capacity overflow protection.

SafeCapacity provides a real-time approach to data optimization, capacity protection, and life cycle management using policies built from defined business rules. This policy-based approach to system management provides I.T. organizations with an effective tool to proactively monitor and manage their environment using fewer resources.

This latest update to the SafeCapacity line is highlighted by the addition of SRM functionality providing clear, file-level reports on storage utilization. The graphical reports provided by SafeCapacity allow users to easily identify and remedy problematic storage issues and proactively fix them with SafeCapacity’s data migration and compression policies. Using a single interface, users can identify and correct improperly allocated storage by relocating files to the proper storage medium to achieve optimum performance and comply with company policy. Using SafeCapacity to ensure that all storage is efficiently allocated will provide more than twenty percent cost savings by reducing over-allocation and improper use of prime disk space.

“Based on the responses we’ve had from our pre-release sites with this update to SafeCapacity we’re confident that this product will provide powerful benefits to storage management organizations,” said Michael Morrison, Director of Business Development at Solution-Soft. “This version further extends the capabilities of SafeCapacity by allowing administrators and managers to have an even clearer picture of exactly what is going on in their environments. Using this information and SafeCapacity’s advanced policy based data migration or compression, they can easily re-allocate and cost balance their storage to maintain business and performance needs.”

Availability

SafeCapacity 3.0 is immediately available for Microsoft’s Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 2003 and Sun Microsystems Solaris 2.8 and Solaris 2.9. Versions for AIX, HP-UX, Linux and NAS file servers are currently in development.
