Nastel Technologies Honored as an IBM “Destination z” Solution Provider for Application Performance Monitoring

Melville, NY July 1, 2009 -- Nastel Technologies, a premier global provider of business transaction performance™ (BTP™) solutions for mission-critical applications spanning both the distributed and mainframe tiers, today announced IBM has named Nastel a "Destination z" vendor. Nastel was honored as one of fourteen vendors in the "Business Resilience" category, which recognizes vendors who specialize in offerings to make IT more resilient to changing business conditions; one of seven vendors in the "Linux on z" category, whose members specialize in helping implement Linux-based solutions on System z; and one of four in the "Service Management" category.

Nastel's AutoPilot M6 Suite, featuring the newest addition to the product family - AutoPilot TransactionWorks - provides unique 360° situational awareness™ of the entire IT environment, encompassing both transactional and operational data in a unified business context. AutoPilot TransactionWorks is the only solution providing auto-discovery and performance management of composite, multi-tiered transactions that span from the mainframe to distributed middleware to the application servers to the database and back -- positioning AutoPilot as an industry leader.

"At Nastel, we know that the mainframe is a key component of large scale, high volume transaction-oriented business applications and must be included in any effort to improve business transaction performance. While our solution differentiates itself in many ways, we feel that the AutoPilot suite's ability to support multi-tier transactions was a decisive factor in earning 'Destination z' honors," said Charley Rich, vice president of marketing and product management for Nastel. "Recognition from IBM in this business critical arena underscores our position as a trusted, leading player in assuring successful, timely completion of business-critical transactions and peak performance of the applications that run businesses."

IBM Destination z is a growing community for collaboration, innovation and ownership value around the IBM System z mainframe platform, the cornerstone of the IBM vision for the Services Oriented Data Center (SODC). Community members are focused on providing solutions that are low cost, energy efficient and simple to set up and manage; use only the capacity businesses need; provide instantaneous access to data; and promote powerful, dependable processing.
