Chicago, IL (Vocus) April 28, 2010
Hostway Corporation, a global leader in infrastructure and web application hosting, announced today that it has partnered with Stratavia, a market leader in IT automation, to launch NetDBAs; a revolutionary, enterprise-class database automation solution that simplifies the management of corporate databases and can be consumed cost effectively as a service.
NetDBAs is a unique database automation tool meant to simplify and automate routine, time consuming tasks such as installing new databases, administering users, applying patches, and managing backups. Through a simple and intuitive web-interface, NetDBAs turns complex work flows into point and click operations that can be performed by any member of an IT organization. NetDBAs is distinctive in that it can be accessed by any business, anywhere from the Hostway cloud. Database servers may be located in one of Hostway’s global data centers, on-site in the customer’s corporate offices, or in any third party data center. The initial release will manage editions of Microsoft SQL Server database; future versions will add support for databases from other manufacturers.
