AUSTIN, Texas, April 26, 2011 - DBI (Database-Brothers, Inc.), a software company providing professional
grade database performance management tools, today announced the release of
Brother-Panther(R) version 5.1. Already recognized by the DB2 IT community as
a best of breed performance monitoring, tuning, and trending tool with its
innovative SQL workload aggregate analysis and trend charts that track change
events, this new version provides aggregate costs and details for database
applications and users, includes CPU chargeback information, and
recommendations for optimized solid state disk (SSD) configuration. Yet, all
this is just the tip of the iceberg when the new Database and SQL workload

"IT people fear change," said Mr. Scott Hayes, President and CEO of DBI.
"But," he added, "change is a constant demand. DB2 gets upgraded. Fixpacks
get applied. Hardware gets changed. Applications get enhanced. DBAs attempt
to tune with configuration and index changes. And, after any change, what
everyone wants to know is 'Is performance better or worse? What improved?
What degraded?'" And with an enormous smile the size of Texas, Hayes added,
"With just two mouse clicks, we can now show our customers the answers to
their burning questions! Brother-Panther 5.1 is an industry game changer that
will enable DB2 users to fearlessly make changes throughout database and
application life cycles."

The High Cost of Slow Performance

In a blog by Alertsite
Bojan Simic, the founder and principal researcher of TRAC Research,
presented the results of his latest research, conducted in the spring of
2010. Here's what he found:

    -- 4.4 seconds is the average delay in website response times when
       business performance begins to decline.
    -- $21,000 is the average revenue loss for one hour of website downtime.
    -- $4,100 is the average revenue loss of an hour of website slowdowns.
    -- Website slowdowns occur 10 times more frequently than website outages.

Based on these findings, according to Simic "we can deduce that website
slowdowns can have twice the revenue impact on an organization as an outage."

"Just imagine the impact the DBI tools can have on your organization,"
states Mr. J. Patrick Guider, Chief Business Officer for DBI. "The cost for
these solutions compared to the lost revenue from poor performance is
straight forward. DBI really becomes a must-have business optimization
solution. The real question is who in these tough economic times can afford
ignoring cost and time savings?"
