HyPerformix Awarded Patent for Application Performance Solution

Technology increases usability by using a non-proprietary programming language.
HyPerformix, an application performance and capacity management software company, announced April 13 that it has received a patent for a method to convert a non-object oriented language to an object oriented one. This method was used to integrate object-oriented functionality into the Application Definition Notation (ADN) programming language within IPS Performance Optimizer (Optimizer). Optimizer focuses on pre-deployment modeling of applications and enables companies to make intelligent tradeoffs between the cost, utilization, and performance of their application and infrastructure.

Optimizer automatically generates application models that are used to analyze the performance of enterprise applications prior to their deployment into production environments. By integrating object-oriented functionality into the ADN language, application models can be extended in order to perform detailed performance analysis.

"Our customers understand the value of being able to proactively change their infrastructures and rely on HyPerformix's software to predict the impact when rolling out applications to the IT environment," says HyPerformix executive vice president and chief technology officer Bruce Huang. "This patent enables the detailed performance analysis of applications in order to ensure they meet customer service level goals once deployed into the production environment."

HyPerformix is committed to cultivating intellectual property and seeks patents for its technology. The company has applied for a total of twenty-five patents this year alone. This is the second patent awarded to HyPerformix in 2005, the first being awarded for its modeling animation technology used in its Workbench product.
