U.S Air Force Adopts DBSophic's Qure Optimizer to Help SQL Server Performance Takeoff
DBSophic’s automatic workload tuning solution used to optimize performance of flight scheduling system
JERUSALEM, Israel, September 14, 2011 – DBSophic, an innovative provider of performance management products for database-centric applications, announced the deployment of its Qure Optimizer solution at the United States Air Force. Qure Optimizer is the first product to implement workload tuning, a new approach to database performance optimization. Unlike traditional query-by-query tuning techniques, workload tuning optimizes the entire database workload automatically.
DBSophic’s workload tuning solution for SQL Server based applications was adopted by Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma. Tinker is a major U.S. Air Force base employing more than 26,000 people and home to several Air Force wings and units. Among these are the Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center, the 76th Maintenance Wing, the 72nd Air Base Wing, the OC-ALC Aerospace Sustainment Directorate, the 448th Supply Chain Management Wing, the 552nd Air Control Wing, STRATCOM Wing One and many more.
The first application to be tuned by Qure Optimizer was the flight scheduling system, based on a SQL Server database. With Tinker Air Force Base housing many airborne squadrons and units, impeccable performance of the flight scheduling system is critical for base operations. Qure Optimizer’s automated workload tuning session generated a wealth of specific recommendations to significantly improve performance.
A free trial version of Qure Optimizer, as well as a white paper about workload tuning, may be downloaded from the DBSophic website.
