Informatica Offers Increased Compute Capacity at No Additional Cost to Customers to Address Spectre and Meltdown Impact

Informatica is First to Provide Customers the Opportunity to Test Data Workloads and Evaluate Processing Needs as They Patch Systems

Redwood City, Calif., Jan. 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

  • Informatica offers 30-day period of up to 30 percent more capacity at no additional cost to customer
  • Informatica is the first company to provide both cloud and on premises customers with opportunity to test data workloads and evaluate processing needs
  • Informatica continues commitment to customer success as enterprises navigate security vulnerabilities

Informatica®, the enterprise cloud data management leader, today announced it is offering both cloud and on premises customers up to 30 percent more compute capacity at no charge, for a 30-day period as they evaluate their systems in response to the recently disclosed Spectre and Meltdown security vulnerabilities.

The National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC) has stated that the security patches for Spectre and Meltdown could diminish CPU performance by up to 30 percent. The NCCIC has encouraged administrators to monitor performance for critical applications and services and to work in partnership with vendors and service providers to mitigate the effect.

With the industry concern around Spectre and Meltdown security and performance issues, Informatica is encouraging customers to test and evaluate their systems to understand what, if any, increase in compute power is needed to continue to effectively manage their data workloads.

To activate the program, customers must contact Informatica Global Customer Support (GCS), to get temporary capacity relief while they evaluate these operating system patches. For more information view the program overview page here.
