Database Replication Software Will Ensure Uninterrupted Flow of Data at Government Agencies

HERNDON, VA and IRVINE, CA - (August 13, 2003) - DLT Solutions, a premier government solutions partner, and Quest Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: QSFT), a leading provider of application management solutions, today announced that Quest SharePlex 4.5 will now be available to federal, state and local government agencies through DLT Solutions' GSA Schedule (#GS-35F-4543G), NASA SEWP III, ECS III and a variety of state contracts.

The new version of SharePlex is the first available database replication product to support both Oracle9i Real Application Clusters (RAC) and Oracle Parallel Server (OPS). It also provides enhanced support for the Oracle E-Business Suite 11i. SharePlex is built on Quest Software?s proven log-based replication technology, which gives enterprises unprecedented flexibility during replication and data movement while allowing them to realize a daily return on investment.

Among projects at other government agencies, SharePlex has been selected for use at the U.S. Army's Army Knowledge Online (AKO) portal to ensure database integrity, replication and 24x7 access. The Army selected SharePlex to help address its disaster recovery concerns after 9/11. As a result, the Army is able to replicate its Oracle database and minimize its average time for database recovery with minimal bandwidth requirements. SharePlex will provide real-time replication of the Army?s portal databases between Fort Belvoir, Va., and a remote disaster recovery site.

"Ensuring the continuous availability of critical business applications has never been more important to our government," said Craig P. Abod, president of DLT Solutions. "Many agencies are already utilizing SharePlex to address their disaster recovery, load balancing and data migration needs, and we?re pleased to offer this new release to existing and new customers."

In addition to providing the broadest database platform support available today, SharePlex 4.5 also introduces support for Oracle deployments that require advanced security and complex data structures. This includes variable arrays and abstract data types not offered by other vendors. These features establish SharePlex as the most comprehensive database replication offering on the market for maintaining business continuity protecting against planned and unplanned outages.

Unlike other database replication products, SharePlex offers:

  • Non-invasive, high-speed, high-volume, efficient replication with minimal impact on the network and low latency between the source and target database.
  • Cost-effective and turn-key Oracle9i and packaged database migration programs; Flexible deployment capabilities that allow replication to work easily with existing applications without requiring code or deployment changes.
  • Validation by leading packaged application vendors such as PeopleSoft and Siebel.
