PRECISE LAUNCHES THE FIRST APPLICATION PERFORMANCE TUNING SOLUTION FOR HP SURESTORE XP DISK ARRAY STORAGE SYSTEMS.

Precise Software Solutions (Nasdaq: PRSE) extends its market reach with the launch recently of the industry's first application performance tuning solution for Hewlett-Packard Company's HP Surestore XP disk array family. By capturing, measuring, and correlating performance metrics from vital components of the application infrastructure, including HP Surestore XP disk array storage systems, Precise now provides a complete, correlated view of application performance - from the end-user all the way to a specific storage device - and proactively detects and corrects the root causes of performance degradation before the end-user is affected. This enables customers to provide end-users with faster response times from their applications, and realize a rapid return on their IT investments.

An evaluation copy of the Precise application performance tuning suite on a CD-ROM will be included with shipments of HP Performance Advisor XP software.

"This announcement marks a tremendous opportunity for Precise - in terms of revenue, broadening our market reach, diversifying and expanding our product line, and strengthening our relationship with HP," said Shimon Alon, Precise's Chief Executive Officer. "Moreover, with many of our nearly 1,400 customers utilizing HP technology within their infrastructures, the Precise solutions can now provide our mutual customers with a solution for application performance tuning which ultimately gives customers accelerated response times from their applications."

Precise has enhanced the functionality of Precise/SQL with the launch of Precise/Crosspoint, developed exclusively for the HP Surestore XP disk array family. Precise/Crosspoint links to the HP Surestore XP disk array family via the HP Performance Advisor XP software to map physical XP device information with logical performance metrics gathered by Precise/SQL from the application, database and operating system. By optimizing I/O database operations, the Precise products enable comprehensive management of application performance in an XP disk array storage environment.

"Precise supports HP's commitment to its customers' investments in storage management by delivering a solution that provides crucial visibility into the performance of the HP Surestore XP disk array storage system as it relates to the IT infrastructure in support of business application processes," said Tom Rallens, General Manager, HP Consolidated Solutions. "HP meets its customers' business needs to manage unpredictable storage demands through technical innovation, truly heterogeneous solutions and stress-free storage services."

With its unique, low overhead sub-second sampling of the database, Precise/SQL and Precise/Crosspoint impose little CPU overhead on the system, making it an ideal solution for production environments, and enabling continuous 24 x 7 monitoring and tuning of application performance problems. To help customers effectively manage business change and growth, Precise/SQL and Precise/Crosspoint, together with all the Precise solutions, store and maintain high quality performance metrics in the Precise Performance Warehouse, providing historical analysis, understanding of usage patterns, and automated identification of performance trends.
