DATABASE SUPPORTS INTELLIGENT DEVICES.McObject has debuted a single-threaded, royalty-free version of its eXtremeDB in-memory database A database that keeps all active records in main memory rather than on disk. Accessing in-memory records is considerably faster than retrieving them from the disk. , delivering a powerful and economical solution for embedded systems Embedded systems
Computer systems that cannot be programmed by the user because they are preprogrammed for a specific task and are buried within the equipment they serve. development projects with streamlined database needs.
Available at an introductory price of $475 per developer, with no distribution royalties charged for an application developed under this license, McObject's single-threaded eXtremeDB fills the need for a powerful, lower-priced in-memory database. Uses include demanding single-threaded telecommunications monitoring, manufacturing testing, and real-time simulation and analysis systems. Royalty-free licensing appeals when software's distribution model -- such as free, mass downloads -- makes license-tracking cumbersome or impossible.
The new single-threaded eXtremeDB offers the same powerful data management capabilities and unparalleled performance found in the multi-threaded version. Users can easily upgrade to take advantage of multi-threaded eXtremeDB with its Shared Memory (1) Using part of main memory to support a low-cost display circuit that does not have its own memory. See shared video memory.
(2) The common memory in a symmetric multiprocessing system that is available to all CPUs. See SMP.

There may be a minute or two of downtime while one system switches over to another, but processing will continue. and XML-enabling add-ons. The single-threaded eXtremeDB, which is available in object code only, can also be upgraded to obtain database source code.
The single-threaded eXtremeDB is now available for Windows and x86-based Linux platforms. The software is available for immediate download with credit card purchases through http://www.mcobject.com/buyitnow.php, or users can obtain the product by contacting McObject at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 425/831-5964.
McObject developed eXtremeDB to support the data-hungry features of next-generation set-top boxes, network switches, industrial automation and other intelligent devices. The database accelerates processing by storing and working with data in main memory, eliminating the performance overhead of disk I/O (Input/Output) The transfer of data between the CPU and a peripheral device. Every transfer is an output from one device and an input to another. See PC input/output.
I/O - Input/Output , caching and related logic.
Powerful data management features include ACID-compliant transactions, a high-level data definition language, and an intuitive application programming interface (API) that catches many common coding errors before they can become expensive bugs. eXtremeDB's tiny footprint (approximately 100K) makes it a logical choice for embedded systems that must minimize RAM and CPU CPU

"Since McObject introduced eXtremeDB, numerous high-profile companies have adopted our multi-threaded database, deploying it in complex, demanding systems. McObject has also recognized a demand for reliable, ultra-fast single-threaded data management, with one-time pricing, and for this segment we're happy to offer this new 'entry-level' eXtremeDB," said Steve Graves Steve Graves (b.

Marie Greyhounds of the OHL before being selected in the second round of the 1982 NHL Entry Draft, 41st overall, by the Edmonton Oilers. , McObject's co-founder and CEO (1) (Chief Executive Officer) The highest individual in command of an organization.
