Sybase Inc. on Thursday announced that its Adaptive Server Enterprise relational database management system can run on Intel Itanium 2 processor-powered platforms with HP-UX and Red Hat Enterprise Linux OSes. The move will free up the database to process much bigger workloads on smaller machines and still maintain enterprise-level throughputs, officials said. Sybase unveiled its new Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE) Red Hat and HP-UX 64-bit Intel support to financial services customers attending the "Strategies for Migrating to Linux" seminar at Sybases Linux Competency Center in New York. Due to the new support, the constraints "throttling" the operating environment when moving enterprise computing down to Intel platforms from traditional Unix systems should become a thing of the past, noted Tom Traubitz, senior marketing manager for Dublin, Calif.-based Sybase.
"[Before] you were going down to 32-bit processing for high-end database applications," Traubitz said. "[The new ASE support] means an enormous amount of memory can now be addressed. Were looking at horizons going to hundreds of thousands of transactions per minute on these relatively-inexpensive architectures."
