SAN MATEO, Calif., March 25 /PRNewswire/ -- MetiLinx, Inc., the leading provider of integrated optimization and manageability solutions for networked server infrastructure, today announced the installation of its MetiLinx iSystem Enterprise (iSE) software product into the mission-critical customer facing Compaq Direct production environment of Compaq Computer Corporation. The MetiLinx iSystem Enterprise (iSE) software product provides a complete solution to integrate, monitor, manage and automatically optimize the performance of networked servers. With server farms of thousands of servers supporting their Internet and e-commerce activities, Compaq intends to use MetiLinx iSE to quickly optimize and identify candidates for server consolidation. The time, cost and resource savings potential delivered by this unique MetiLinx product provide a fundamental piece for Compaq's enterprise system management, IT consolidation and optimization needs. The MetiLinx iSE product has shown system wide performance (over 40%) through resource optimization and increasing enterprise system management since Compaq commenced working with MetiLinx in early 2001. In addition to optimization of resources, the ability to determine system wide resource utilization dynamically iSystem Enterprise solved a server farm problem the day of the install. "After installing iSystem Enterprise into the Compaq Direct web site, a site that generates millions of dollars of revenue for Compaq, we observed part of our Compaq Direct web servers showing a much higher resource utilization metric than all of the others," said Leo Angele II, Compaq's Technical Analyst of the Compaq Direct Systems. "It was quickly determined that an application was tying up all server resources on that part of the Compaq Direct system. That problem was immediately resolved while maintaining performance and production service at peak levels. The resource utilization for that part of the Compaq Direct system returned to the same levels as its peers avoiding performance, availability and transactional problems before they occurred." "This was a significant proof point for Compaq as it clearly demonstrated the benefits that the iSystem Enterprise product can have out of the box. We are pleased with the progress that we've made and continue to remain convinced that we will see increased benefit as we roll more of this solution into our environment," said Vercie Lark, Director Internet Services & Operations at Compaq. "The implementation of iSystem Enterprise within Compaq Direct is the latest milestone in our successful relationship with MetiLinx." commented Robert V. Napier, Senior Vice President Global Business Solutions and CIO of Compaq Computer Corporation. Mr. Napier went on to say. "iSE Version 2.7 is the culmination of our teams efforts to solve every CIO's need for server farm performance improvements, adaptive optimization of critical server resources, dynamic performance diagnostics, leading to the ability to do intelligent server farm consolidation. As we move beyond critical customer facing web services, I believe we will see more opportunities to reduce operational expense while improving performance and RAS in areas such as Exchange and ERP applications. I have been in the IT profession for 30+ years and this is one of those products that I would categorize as break through." Compaq's e-commerce activities generated $19.7 Billion in online revenue in 2001, ranking them 6th on the Interactive 500 List of top e-commerce revenue generating companies.
