Press Release

SAN JOSE, Calif.

NetIQ Corp. (Nasdaq: NTIQ), a leading provider of Systems Management, Security Management and Web Analytics solutions, today announced the general availability of its SQL Management Suite 1.1, a comprehensive solution that provides SQL Server diagnostic and recovery functions, data change diagnostic and recovery functions, configuration management and change history functions and integration with leading Windows operations management products including Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) 2000.

"NetIQ is committed to delivering the most comprehensive management solution for SQL Server DBAs," said Kent Erickson, director of database products at NetIQ. "This latest version further helps our customers achieve high levels of availability and performance from their SQL Server databases."

The National Institutes of Health has selected NetIQ® DiagnosticManager™ for SQL Server (DiagnosticManager) to help them with the day-to-day management and administration of their SQL Server environment. "We currently have about 30 SQL Servers, many of which are departmental-based, and one of the first things we’ll be able to do with DiagnosticManager is to run reports on database size and average CPU utilization on all the servers," said Scott Dolin, SQL DBA, National Institutes of Health. "This will help us identify which databases can be consolidated allowing us to minimize costs and simplify administration."
