Solution-Soft’s SafeCapacity Released for Windows 2000™ and Windows XP™

SANTA CLARA, CALIF, November 15, 2002 — SolutionSoft Systems, Inc. (Solution-Soft), the leading provider of Intelligent Data Optimization (IDO) solutions, today announced the release of SafeCapacity, automated capacity management software for Windows™ Servers. SafeCapacity addresses the increasing need for management tools in the growing storage networking market and provides easy-to-administer storage optimization and capacity overflow protection.

SafeCapacity for Windows uses a GUI created, policy-based configuration to continuously monitor a server’s file systems, seamlessly allocating more storage space whenever needed. Additionally, SafeCapacity decreases the need to over-provision storage resources on individual systems, thus reducing storage related costs. As opposed to management by crisis, SafeCapacity automatically notifies system administrators when problems occur, and, based on pre-set rules, takes corrective action immediately to increase the amount of allocated storage. By automating capacity management, enterprises can greatly reduce total storage system ownership costs, thereby maximizing the return on investment.

”Solution-Soft has a long history of supplying quality software for large scale, high-end Microsoft environments. This release of SafeCapacity further extends the offerings we are able to provide our many customers by giving them a solution for pro-actively managing their most critical storage” said Paul Wang, CTO of Solution-Soft. “Out of disk space events are seen as the most frequent cause for system failures today, with the related downtime and disaster recovery being both painful and very costly. SafeCapacity addresses the potential for this event by continuously monitoring a servers file system and taking corrective actions, before storage capacity levels become critical”

SafeCapacity is currently available for Windows (2000 and XP), Unix (Solaris, HP-UX and AIX) and MPE (HP-3000).

Solution-Soft’s SafeCapacity has been certified "IBM TotalStorage Proven™"
