Enterprises choose Sybase ASE on Linux for mission-critical applications that demand lightning-fast performance, while maintaining lower overall costs and the benefits of open technology.

Sybase's Linux commitment began in 1999 with the delivery of an enterprise-class DBMS on Linux and was the first to deliver a free enterprise-class commercial database that includes both pilot development and deployment. Building on ASE’s proven reliability, ASE for Linux provides a highly reliable, low-cost solution that can adapt to the service level needs of individual applications and change dynamically to meet new demands.

ASE takes performance to new levels for the demanding requirements of transaction-intensive, mission-critical OLTP and decision support applications on Linux.

With Linux proving itself as a strong platform for enterprise computing, companies are seeing performance and cost advantages as they shift complex workloads to Linux.

Award-winning Functionality

Sybase ASE on Linux has many features that ease the administrative burden and control operating costs in the data center. This includes self-management features: automated backup, resource management, and database space management. In fact, Sybase ASE on Linux was the recipient of the latest Enterprise Open Source Magazine’s Readers’ Choice Award for “Best Linux Database” as voted by members of the open source community. This was ASE’s third consecutive time receiving the prestigious award.

Low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)

ASE enables IT departments to improve service levels while reducing hardware footprints and associated costs. ASE on Linux makes better use of system resources than comparable systems and streamlines internal and external processes.   Given the current economic environment, making the right database investment must include a focus on total cost of ownership (TCO).  According to Standish Group, when comparing TCO for Sybase ASE 15 and Oracle 11g, Standish Group found:

  • Sybase ASE had 28% less downtime, resulting in $55,000 yearly savings
  • Overall, Sybase is approximately 9% more cost effective than Oracle
  • To deliver a highly reliable application, with the best total cost of ownership, you must consider Sybase on Lintel
