Base One Launches High Performance Information Sharing for Grid Computing; IDC Reports Base One Positioned to Address Data Access and Sharing across Grids.
Base One International Corporation, a leading supplier of software for developing data-intensive and compute-intensive applications for cluster and grid computing, today announced a major upgrade - High Performance Information Sharing (HPIS) - to their middleware and programming toolkit. This new release significantly extends Base One's successful software for developing Windows applications, by enabling the secure and easy sharing of information within and between enterprises running applications on totally different data base platforms.
Base One's customer proven and U.S. patented software, supports the major databases in the marketplace (IBM, Oracle, Microsoft, and Sybase) running on Windows, Linux/Unix, IBM iSeries and zSeries database servers. HPIS leverages Web Services and XML for importing and exporting data and metadata (including validation rules, indexes and referential constraints) between independently managed systems. HPIS enhances security and data sharing when importing data from other systems by providing sufficient information in the metadata to completely reconstruct and validate the database structure and execute all of the data validation rules on the target system. In addition, HPIS supports importing and exporting of non-text objects (images, sounds, documents, video clips, etc.), which are often associated with structured data.
Businesses can use High Performance Information Sharing to provide data interchange between suppliers and customers of orders, inventory, or to quickly merge information after an acquisition. And, government agencies can use HPIS to query and exchange information for threat monitoring and assessment, or establish cross organizational inventories and parts replacement capabilities.
International Data Corporation (IDC) the leading industry analyst organization tracking the grid computing marketplace has issued an Insight Report about Base One's HPIS as part of IDC's Workstations and High Performance Systems Continuous Intelligence Service. The full report is also available on the Base One International Corporation web site at www.boic.com.
"Base One's High Performance Information Sharing facility extends the company's database-centric grid product strategy and positions it to address customer requirements for data access and sharing across grids." said Earl Joseph II, Ph.D, IDC Program Vice President. "IDC surveys show that an increasing number of sites are implementing various types of Grids in their computing environments. Requirements to share information between different systems within and between organizations provide a significant opportunity for data centric grid-based products."
