   ATLANTA, IBM PartnerWorld 2001, Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ --
 SteelEye Technology Inc., a leading application reliability company, today
 announced that LifeKeeper(R) for Windows NT and Linux works with DB2*
 Universal Database to provide utmost reliability of implementations on IBM's
 eServer xSeries* line of Intel-based servers.  SteelEye announced it has
 teamed up with IBM to integrate the latest version of LifeKeeper Next
 Generation Enterprise Reliability(TM) platform for IBM's DB2 database running

 provide enterprises with cost-effective, reliable and scaleable database
 server offerings that provide maximum uptime for business-critical

     Enterprise environments rely on DB2 for business-critical applications
 with dynamic data content such as data warehouses, e-commerce applications,
 financial systems, supply-chain management, and business intelligence systems.
 To ensure maximum uptime and utmost data accessibility of these applications,
 SteelEye's LifeKeeper high availability clustering software for Windows NT and
 Linux monitors system, storage and application health, maintains client
 connectivity, and provides continuous data access, regardless of where the
 clients reside -- on the Internet, corporate intranet, or extranet.  With
 intelligent failover and multiple fault-detection mechanisms for detecting and
 recovering from hardware, component or application faults, the LifeKeeper
 reliability platform for DB2 prevents system or application failures.
     "Our customers today demand e-business data management solutions with
 continuous, fault-tolerant availability," said Jim Kelly, vice president of
 Marketing, IBM Data Management Solutions.  "DB2 Universal Database integrated
 with SteelEye's LifeKeeper on our eServer xSeries enables customers to bet
 their e-businesses on this high-availability data management system."
     "LifeKeeper offers the reliability and ease of use companies require in
 today's e-business era," said Jim Fitzgerald, President and CEO of SteelEye
 Technology.  "Our leadership in developing high availability and data
 protection solutions is further supported by an industry leader like IBM
 working with SteelEye as a reliability solution provider for NT and
 Linux-based clusters of world-class DB2 UDB environments running on xSeries
 servers."
 
      LifeKeeper Configuration Flexibility and Ease of Use
     SteelEye's LifeKeeper for NT and Linux brings bullet-proof clustering to
 enterprises of all sizes by providing a cost-effective solution that runs on
 Intel-based servers and eliminates the need for costly professional services
 through plug-and-play support and straightforward management features.  With
 LifeKeeper, IT managers can easily implement automated fault monitoring and
 recovery to ensure round-the-clock availability of servers, storage,
 applications and data.
     LifeKeeper for NT and Linux offers unprecedented configuration flexibility
 through support for 16 or more clustered Intel-based servers running Windows
 NT or a range of Linux distributions, as well as SCSI storage, and Fibre
 Channel-based Storage Area Networks (SANs).
     Used by such Fortune 1000 companies as Chase Manhattan Bank and AT&T,
 LifeKeeper is an industry-proven technology that automatically restores
 application services by either restarting them locally or seamlessly
 relocating them to another server in the cluster.  SteelEye products offer
 enterprises consistent reliability management across a variety of computing
 environments to protect uptime of all of their critical applications running
