(PRWEB) April 21, 2005

Embarcadero Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: EMBT), a provider of data lifecycle management solutions, today announced that it is the only vendor to offer a complete data and database management solution set for MySQL Network. Commercially available today, data professionals can model and generate MySQL Network databases and schemas with ER/Studio®, as well as orchestrate complex ETL and migration tasks with DT/Studio®. All MySQL Network jobs across the enterprise can be scheduled with Embarcadero Job Scheduler, and data professionals can proactively manage performance and stress testing with Extreme Test®.

Embarcadero also announces MySQL Network support for the industry-leading database administration tool, DBArtisan. With this release, MySQL Network DBAs can effectively manage all administration tasks using the familiar DBArtisan graphical console.

“Embarcadero Technologies is a key player in the validation of MySQL Network as a high performance yet affordable database solution for the enterprise market,” said Zack Urlocker, vice president of marketing for MySQL AB. “Their robust offerings enable the administration of databases, as well as data modeling, data migration, job scheduling, performance and load testing. With Embarcadero’s support of MySQL Network across virtually their entire product line, customers can immediately leverage their existing skill set using Embarcadero tools to take full advantage of MySQL Network.”

Embarcadero provides a single user interface for administration and optimization of databases on all major platforms, including current versions of Oracle®, IBM® DB2®, Microsoft® SQL Server®, Sybase®, and now the MySQL Network. This feature alone has become a requisite for enterprise-wide database management, and has helped to make DBArtisan the de facto standard for database administration. With DBArtisan, MySQL Network DBAs have the first and best administration solution to help them fully leverage their MySQL Network environment.

“DBArtisan’s support for the MySQL Network is the culmination of the technical investment we’ve made in our partnership with MySQL which began in the summer of 2004,” said Robin Schumacher, vice president of product management at Embarcadero Technologies. “As an open source platform, it is critical that DBAs and developers have industry-standard solutions that can help them deliver on the promise of MySQL Network in their enterprise. With DBArtisan, Embarcadero further bolsters the most comprehensive cross-platform set of solutions, helping position MySQL Network as a leading database platform.”

Companies today are focused on cost-effectively managing and optimizing critical data and database infrastructures. Many are looking to open source platforms such as MySQL Network to address this increasingly complex problem. In order to do this, however, they need solutions for migrating their existing databases, and managing them once they’ve been implemented. Embarcadero Technologies offers the only comprehensive set of data lifecycle management solutions that support all major database platforms, including MySQL Network. Embarcadero Technologies supports MySQL Network in current or imminent releases of ER/Studio, DT/Studio, DBArtisan, Embarcadero Job Scheduler, and Extreme Test, and includes MySQL Network among key platform support in all short-term product roadmaps.
