Solid's Embedded Database Chosen by EMC for Inclusion in EMC Data Manager 5.0

10/8/2002 - Solid Information Technology, the leading distributed data management provider, announced that EMC has selected Solid FlowEngine for use in EMC Data Manager (EDM) - an industry leading backup system that is deployed in many Fortune 500 applications. Solid, with its distributed data management solution, Solid FlowEngine, has secured over 200 customer design wins worldwide from companies such as Avaya, EMC, HP, Nokia, and Nortel. Embedded in mission-critical products, Solid's patented FlowEngine technology is integral in helping customers' solutions more effectively manage data, enabling new networking, storage and telecom services to be developed and launched more quickly and cost-effectively with 99.999 percent availability.

Solid's Embeddable High Performance Key to EMC's Requirements
EMC required an embedded database to maintain event data about day-to-day EDM operations. This data aids in performance monitoring and tuning, and allows the EDM to automatically analyze problem conditions encountered during the enterprise wide backup operations that it performs daily. The EDM leverages the Solid FlowEngine as the enabling technology that allows hundreds of discrete backup related activities to be tied together into job summaries that identify the root cause of any backup failures and suggest resolutions to the problems. Complete solutions like the EMC Data Manager require reliable, embeddable, and relational data management tools - key requirements that are met by the patented technologies that Solid FlowEngine provides.

"Solid appreciates the validation that EMC has given to our flagship distributed data management solution, Solid FlowEngine, and our dedicated engineering support team," said Jussi Harvela, president and chief executive officer, Solid. "Now more than ever, equipment manufacturers and service providers are requiring better performance and the highest availability levels possible. The proven, stable solutions we provide and the ability for 'unattended' database administration give Solid FlowEngine a very compelling value proposition."

About Solid FlowEngine
Solid FlowEngine is a carrier-class distributed data management platform made up of two tightly coupled components: an embeddable, lightweight database management system and a patented database synchronization technology. This optimized combination creates an easy-to-manage platform that can be used to move information through the infrastructure of a distributed enterprise, or move information to and from devices. Solid FlowEngine lets users create synchronized replica databases in order to provide a high degree of robustness and scalability to delegate computing autonomy or support loosely connected users and devices. Designed so that it can be easily embedded in unattended devices and applications, Solid FlowEngine can be concealed inside an application, delivering a compelling low total cost of ownership (TCO).
