  Confio Software Once Again Achieves Impressive Year-Over-Year Revenue Growth

BOULDER, Colo. -- February 20, 2013

Today Confio Software, the makers of the award-winning Ignite database
performance management software, announced that it achieved 69 percent
year-over-year revenue growth in 2012. The announcement once again marks an
impressive year of growth for Confio as it recorded similar percent revenue
growth in 2011.

Confio attributed its significant growth in 2012 to increased adoption by both
development and production teams, as customer need for rapidly deploying and
supporting new applications continues to build. The continual increase in the
volume of data under management and the shift to virtual and cloud
infrastructure also drove many IT departments to seek benefit from Ignite. The
results reflected growing success in addressing a significant challenge for
many organizations – improving collaboration across the entire IT team
including developers, architects, QA engineers, and Production DBAs. Ignite
facilitates database DevOps, extending Agile methods to the operations team,
to bridge the gap between developers and production DBAs. By breaking down
departmental silos – especially between developers and database administrators
– Confio Ignite customers are able to quickly implement change and bring
software products to market faster and at lower cost.

“Fostering collaboration among developers and DBAs while providing real-time
visibility into the production environment is a key factor in Ignite’s success
and has been for years,” said Matt Larson, Confio’s founder and CEO. “As more
organizations extend their Agile development practices to include production
IT operations, bringing developers and DBAs together to jointly focus on end
user application performance will become even more important. Ignite’s role in
helping organizations achieve this goal, combined with our commitment to
product quality, helps ensure that Confio’s impressive growth trajectory will
continue through 2013.”

Other significant achievements for Confio and its employees in 2012 include:

  *Confio founder and CEO Matt Larson was named a finalist in the Ernst &
    Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2012 program
