Stratavia Launches Automation Library

DENVER -- Stratavia, a leading provider of Data Center automation software and services, today introduced the Stratavia Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) Automation Library. As the first resource of its kind, the Library will offer “SOP modules” IT professionals can “check-out” over the Web, to access complimentary step-by-step recommendations to automate complex, manually-intensive and repetitive tasks related to emerging critical IT issues. The Library is a powerful tool available as a public service to the IT community and will expand as new SOP modules are made available.

As part of the Library’s launch, Stratavia is making its first SOP module available today, offering best practices for upgrading a Microsoft SQL Server 2000 environment to SQL Server 2005. Microsoft has announced that mainstream support for SQL Server 2000 will end in April 2008 making updates, hotfixes and security patches unavailable after that date. With so many administrators in the process of the upgrade, this SOP is designed to equip organizations with an instruction manual to efficiently upgrade their SQL environment and leverage new features in the areas of performance, stability and security.

“The increasing complexity of the data center is driving costs higher than they need to be,” said Thor Culverhouse, CEO, Stratavia. “The IT community can come together to share best practices and make the process much more streamlined, moving the odds back in their favor. This library is a shared resource for the community to do just that.”
