Confio Software Announces Record Growth in 2009

Strong New Products and Cost Savings Advantages Drive 43% Revenue Increase

March 17, 2010 - Boulder, CO - Confio Software, the leading developer of response-time based database performance tools, today announced that bookings growth for the 2009 calendar year increased by 43% over the prior year, which yielded the largest total revenue increase in Confio's history. The results reflect the market success of the new Confio Ignite PI architecture released in early 2009, and the rapid escalation of products such as Ignite for SQL Server based on that new architecture. In a difficult economy where many software companies registered flat or declining results, Confio gained more new customers and generated more license revenue than ever before. Confio Ignite improves performance of databases and the applications that depend on them, and helps companies reduce the cost of operating their database infrastructure.

"The demand for new Confio Ignite products by both new customers and existing sites drove sales to a record level throughout the year," said Matt Larson, CEO and Founder of Confio, "Our products hit the spot with customers who needed an innovative approach to improving service delivery while keeping costs in check."

In early 2009 Confio began shipping its new Ignite PI products, built on a web based, open architecture. The results throughout the year reflected the enthusiasm around the new Ignite PI products and the improvements in how they delivered value to customers. Especially significant was the growth of Ignite for SQL Server, constituting the fastest growing product in Confio's history.

Confio Ignite monitors, finds problems, and improves service levels in Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, Sybase and IBM DB2 databases. Ignite focuses on response time, the most important indicator of database service, and provides the deepest and most extensive response time history of any database performance solution across all four platforms. The latest release built on the Ignite PI architecture, Ignite 8, correlates response time with server health, real time sessions and expert advice for a comprehensive performance solution.

Free trial copies of Ignite can be downloaded from with performance results being achieved in minutes.
