ANTs Unveils Innovative Database Consolidation Strategy.

Concept Demo Shown at Oracle Users Conference Redefines "Compatibility"

BURLINGAME, Calif. -- ANTs software inc. (OTCBB:ANTS), a leader in compatible, high-performance SQL database management systems, last week unveiled a new strategy for substantially reducing the effort required by organizations to consolidate their disparate databases and protect the investments in their application development. ANTs successfully completed a concept demonstration of its Compatibility Server[TM] at the recent Independent Oracle Users Group Collaborate 2007 conference, showing attendees how such middleware could be employed to quickly migrate an application from a Sybase database to an Oracle database.

The Compatibility Server, which is based on the compatibility and advanced connectivity technologies developed by ANTs for its flagship ANTs Data Server, illustrates how these technologies can also be applied to quickly migrate applications to any of the major enterprise databases from Oracle, Microsoft, or IBM. The ANTs approach is unique in that, with minimal or no changes, applications connect to the new target database through the Compatibility Server without having to be recompiled or rewritten. All the stored procedures and queries from the legacy database run natively without change on the Compatibility Server, which also connects natively with the new target database.

"We believe there are broad commercial opportunities for database consolidation, which can be addressed by applying the compatibility technology already developed for the ANTs Data Server," said Rao Yendluri, vice president of engineering at ANTs Software. "ANTs is constantly researching new ways to help organizations consolidate their database infrastructures, and the successful completion of this proof-of-concept demonstration has redefined compatibility to suggest another way to accomplish this."
