Posted on Wednesday, October 06 2004 @ 14:52 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
IBM late on Tuesday announced the biggest update of its popular WebSphere business software in two years, adding features such as automatically detecting and fixing problems.

WebSphere, software known as middleware that helps companies build and run Web-based programs, can now detect everything from a small glitch in a network to power failures or natural disaster and take actions in a matter seconds to save and process Web-based business transactions, the world's largest computer company said.

International Business Machines Corp. IBM.N said that previously, it could have taken hours or days to recover under the older systems. The Armonk, New York-based company said the updated WebSphere Application Server Version 6 can protect customers against network and server crashes that can cost millions of dollars per hour.
