Sybase, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise infrastructure and mobile software, announced the availability of Sybase ASE on HP-UX and Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating systems, powered by the Intel Itanium 2 processor. Enterprises will now have greater choice for implementing a high-performance, high-value solution for the management and delivery of business-critical data in heavy transaction volume environments.

According to Dushyant Shahrawat, senior analyst, Securities and Capital Markets, for TowerGroup, "Businesses continue to look for ways to trim costs, without sacrificing performance, flexibility and scalability. As such, the Linux platform is gaining market share across industries despite the economic slowdown."

Penoles, a mining group with integrated businesses in smelting and refining non-ferrous metal products and inorganic chemicals, is the world's top producer of silver, metallic bismuth and sodium sulfate, the leading Latin American producer of lead and zinc, and Mexico's top refined gold producer. "Sybase ASE's early support for Linux initially attracted us and we have since relied upon its high availability and performance to meet our business needs. In fact, Sybase ASE and Linux enabled us to lower our IT costs by 70 percent and improve performance by 400 percent," said Pedro Luis Sanchez Armas, technology manager for Penoles. "Now with ASE support for Itanium, we'll be able to easily port applications across different hardware platforms, providing us with even more flexibility."
