ATLANTA, Dec. 3 -- Racemi Inc. announced today support
for Solaris Dynamic Tracing (DTrace), an advanced tracing tool in
the Solaris 10 Operating System (OS), allowing IT personnel to
define coherent and accurate policies based on a far broader set of
instrumentation than is available in any other operating system.
Enterprises seeking scalable application performance have
traditionally deployed dedicated servers with CPU and memory capacities
exceeding expected peak demands. With server infrastructures often
drastically underutilized, IT organizations are consolidating them to
reduce costs, making server mobility one of the more promising areas
within the virtualization space.
Racemi's DynaCenter is a server mobility solution that allows IT
organizations to repurpose servers in minutes. DynaCenter allows IT
organizations to capture and modify server images and store them in a
NAS or SAN-based image repository. DynaCenter's policy engine then
leverages user-defined rules to decide where and when server
repurposing is necessary to meet application processing demand. As
demand increases, an application can be booted onto a larger server. If
deployed in an environment utilizing server farms, additional servers
can be quickly deployed to meet rising demands. DynaCenter provides IT
organizations with cost effective solutions for initiatives such as disaster recovery, datacenter consolidation and rapid recovery.
The Solaris Dynamic Tracing framework provides a comprehensive view
of the operating system and application behavior with an unprecedented
level of detail giving access to over 30,000 probes built into the OS
kernel. DTrace provides insight to the server's applications, operating
system and infrastructure that expedites troubleshooting, monitoring
and performance tuning. Solaris Dynamic Tracing is safe to use on
development, test, and production systems and makes it very easy to
monitor valuable execution parameters that are specific to enterprise
applications' operating environment and connect the application
behavior to the underlining infrastructure. When used in support of
scalable performance requirements, DTrace helps enhance the ability to
react efficiently when an application requires additional processing
"The combination of DynaCenter and DTrace allows IT personnel to
define coherent and accurate policies using a far broader set of
instrumentation than is available in any other operating system, thanks
to the visibility DTrace gives of the overall infrastructure and
application behavior," said Richard Stansbury, CEO of Racemi. "In short,
we deliver on-demand server scalability through more sophisticated
policies based on far deeper levels of application and OS
instrumentation delivered by DTrace. As a result IT organizations gain
a truly cost effective means of providing scalable processing power in
support of critical business applications based on highly sophisticated
"Sun puts a lot of effort and resources into creating the best
instrumented and manageable platform available to customers today,"
said Amir Raz, market segment manager at Sun Microsystems. "We expect
the combination of Solaris manageability and Racemi's DynaCenter
capabilities to enable datacenter managers and application owners to
maximize their investment in infrastructure."
Racemi provides certainty to enterprises seeking to optimize datacenter operations by maximizing the utilization, reliability, agility and cost-effectiveness of their IT assets. DynaCenter, the company's flagship systems management software solution, is ideal for alternative use of idle disaster recovery assets, datacenter relocations, lab and test environments, managed hosting and utility computing.
