New Demo kit Showcases Workload Tuning With DBSophic's Qure on the Familiar Microsoft AdventureWorks Database

JERUSALEM, Israel, October 13, 2010 - DBSophic, an innovative provider of performance management products for
database-centric applications, has released a new demo kit (
www.dbsophic.com/qure-demo-kit) based on the Microsoft
"AdventureWorks" sample database. AdventureWorks is a sample database
provided by Microsoft's open source project (codeplex) (
www.codeplex.com/) and is used by SQL Server administrators and
developers worldwide. The new demo kit will help DBAs understand and
experience the benefits of workload tuning in a familiar database

Workload tuning is a new approach to database performance optimization
recently introduced by DBSophic in the company's "Qure for SQL Server"
product. Unlike traditional query-by-query tuning techniques, workload tuning
optimizes the entire database workload automatically. More details about
workload tuning can be found in a whitepaper (
www.dbsophic.com/workload-tuning-whitepaper-pr) by SQL Server MVP Ami

SQL Server MVP Frank Kalis recently reviewed (
Qure and workload tuning using the demo kit and the AdventureWorks
database. While the trial version of Qure may be run against any database,
Kalis notes the advantage of using the AdventureWorks database as the basis
for such an objective, 3rd-party study: "The reason for this is simple: The
results and Qure's recommendations in this review will either be identical or
quite close to the ones that you will get when you run the sample analysis
against your copy of AdventureWorks."
