In an exclusive deal, Cisco will bundle Sybase' mobile database, SQL Anywhere, with its NT and Unix network management products.
The combined solution will be available next month. It is aimed at organisations that need to centralise processing for remote offices and Lans. SQL Anywhere is a small footprint database embedded in clients and offering relational features such as online back-up and recovery.
The trigger for the Cisco deal was the porting of SQL Anywhere to Unix as well as Microsoft platforms.
"We have found that, by enabling users to handle more complex tasks through embedded intelligence in network management applications, operations staff can achieve cost savings without sacrificing network availability," claimed Jeff Turner, network management marketing director at Cisco.
