MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Solid Information Technology Corp. today announced a new product, Solid AdaptableEngine, the first distributed data manager that allows developers to optimize application performance by choosing whether data should be stored on disk or in memory. The ability to choose the appropriate storage option, table by table, enables application developers to achieve the highest performance while optimizing memory usage; it also frees developers from dealing with data management issues and allows them to design more robust applications. Solid will sell AdaptableEngine through its direct sales force and through distributors in Asia. Solid AdaptableEngine will be generally available in Q1 of 2003 and will supplement the Solid FlowEngine™ product, which will continue to be available, with version 4.0 releasing simultaneously with AdaptableEngine.

In a separate release:

Solid Information Technology Corp., the leading distributed data management provider, today announced the integration of its Solid FlowEngine™ technology with Sun Microsystems’ Netra™ High Availability (HA) Suite platform. The embedded Solid FlowEngine provides Sun’s Netra HA Suite software with critical distributed data management and “watchdog” functionality. Solid FlowEngine reduces application fail-over time to 100 milliseconds, automatically switching to backup replica databases and reducing restart delay for users after a system failure. Additional benefits include reduced time to market and the ability to run Solid FlowEngine unattended. Solid plans to offer ongoing support for Netra High Availability Suite Foundation Services with its Solid FlowEngine technology.

“Working with Sun, a leader in the server industry, has been an excellent technical opportunity for Solid. Sun’s Netra HA Suite and Solid FlowEngine complement each other to bring network equipment providers and telematics customers significant value in data management,” said Ari Valtanen, chief technology officer and co-founder, Solid. “The 99.999 percent availability is key to our customers, and Solid selected Sun’s Netra HA Suite software as the highly reliable, carrier-grade HA foundation for building our distributed data management platform. We anticipate great success with Sun going forward.”Solid Information Technology Ltd.Sun Microsystems Inc.
