"Working with DBI Software is a natural fit for Triton Consulting. The two companies have enjoyed an excellent working relationship for many years and we're very excited to be entering into a formal partnership with an organisation which is so respected in the DB2 community. The combination of Triton's expert Remote DBA service and DBI's industry leading software means our customers will benefit from a truly proactive database monitoring and management solution." said Julian Stuhler, Principal Consultant, Triton Consulting and IBM Gold Consultant.

Bringing together the most knowledgeable DB2 experts from both sides of the Atlantic

In the UK Triton Consulting are the leading providers of DB2 expertise and DBI Software are renowned in the US for their DB2 LUW performance solutions. Both companies have directors who are members of the elite IBM Gold Consultants group in recognition of their technical excellence and contribution to the technical community. Combining their expertise, the two organisations will be able to effectively serve customers around the globe.

Triton Consulting has been providing Remote DBA to UK customers for nearly 10 years. The service comes in two packages; Remote DBA Office which provides support Monday-Friday during normal working hours and Remote DBA 24/7 for round the clock support. Each package has a fixed monthly cost with no limit on support calls. By partnering with DBI software this service will now be offered to customers in North America.

"The DB2 performance tools from DBI are fantastic and industry-proven, they are really going to enhance the proactive monitoring service we provide our Remote DBA customers. In addition, we're excited to be the first reseller of the tools to the UK market," Iqbal Goralwalla, Head of DB2 Midrange & Managed Services, Triton Consulting.

DBI Software works with customers to help them effectively tune and monitor their DB2 LUW systems. Their industry leading monitoring and reporting software is designed specifically for DB2 LUW. When combined with Triton's Remote DBA service it will provide a truly comprehensive support and monitoring solution. Triton's expert support team will use Brother-HawkTM from DBI software to help them remotely manage their customer's DB2 databases.

"DBI had a record setting year in 2010 and this was achieved by helping many organizations optimize DB2 LUW Performance, improve DBA productivity, and lowering hardware and software licensing costs. We are excited about our enhanced partnerships with Triton Consulting because this will allow both organizations to deliver even greater value to a larger worldwide DB2 community," said Scott Hayes, CEO DBI Software and IBM DB2 GOLD Consultant.

This partnership brings together two of the most experienced and specialised organisations in the DB2 world and shows a strengthening of the DB2 partner community. Through the partnership both organisations will be able to provide their existing customers with a more comprehensive service and reach out to new customers around the world.
