DBmarlin & LicenseFortress partner announcement

DBmarlin & LicenseFortress partner announcement

With this new partnership, LicenseFortress is now able to offer their users a way to manage, track and protect database performance and capacity, in addition to the licence compliance and optimisation they are already well known for.

LicenseFortress now bundles DBmarlin as LicenseFortress Database Insight™, available as as an add-on to their ArxPlatform™.

The ArxPlatform leverages intelligent, real-time software licence compliance monitoring and alerting for Oracle®, Microsoft®, and VMware®. The addition of Database Insight™ will provide optimisation for how database licences are used, as well as unlocking hosting and cloud platform savings. The integration means that any database discovered by their auto-discovery process can be automatically monitored to ensure that those databases have the right level of performance and resource utilisation.

Resource utilisation and licence optimisation are related areas. Understanding where database servers are over-provisioned and where the CPU count can be reduced can save on licence costs with the database vendor. Similarly, downgrading from Enterprise edition to Standard edition of the database where it isn’t needed can also save on licence costs. These cost savings can be significant when you add up the total licence cost across your entire database estate.”
