manages quality of service in data centers.
Precise v9.0 provides a single, Web-based
control panel for application, database and storage managers to analyze data in
transit, identify and isolate bottlenecks, and solve delivery problems.
The newest version of the product now allows IT managers to track data movement
across any type of IT infrastructure, including cloud-connected systems.
With more and more data being processed and stored in private, public and
hybrid cloud systems, the quality and reliability of the data movement itself
has become a growing concern to enterprise IT managers.

Key features of v9.0, according to Precise, include tracking of every
transaction from end-users all the way down to the storage level in real time,
providing full visibility of movement; automatic determination of transaction
problems in Java code, database or storage; and a visual presentation of the
impact of virtual-machine events on application performance.
Precise, based in Redwood City, Calif., currently has more than 1,500 users
worldwide. Its products support all major packaged applications, custom
applications, databases and storage devices running on physical, virtual and
