McObject’s eXtremeDB: First In-Memory Database For BlueCat Linux 5.0 and Linux 2.6 Kernel

June 21, 2004 — With McObject’s release of its eXtremeDB 2.3 in-memory embedded database for LynuxWorks’ BlueCat Linux 5.0 operating system, developers of embedded Linux applications for the first time have an in-memory database system (IMDS) available for LynuxWorks’ powerful embedded platform, and for the Linux 2.6 kernel on which BlueCat Linux 5.0 is based.

eXtremeDB 2.3 for BlueCat Linux 5.0, available immediately, offers an off-the-shelf solution to embedded Linux systems’ growing need to manage larger volumes of more complex data. As an in-memory database, eXtremeDB eliminates disk I/O, caching and related overhead—delivering the kind of instant responsiveness demanded in key target markets such as communications, military and aerospace. And eXtremeDB’s tiny (as little as 50K code size) footprint delivers savings by minimizing hardware needs in cost-sensitive OEM applications like consumer electronics.

eXtremeDB also provides sophisticated developer tools, including support for varied data and query types, and a powerful debugging environment with a self-diagnostic API that catches a wide range of common database programming errors before they slip into runtime code.

eXtremeDB and BlueCat Linux usage are both growing rapidly, fueled by technology organizations’ desire for innovative and stable off-the-shelf software components supported by companies with proven track records. LynuxWorks is excited to expand its partnership with McObject to include eXtremeDB 2.3 support for BlueCat Linux 5.0,” LynuxWorks’ VP Sales and Marketing Bob Morris said.

“BlueCat Linux 5.0 users benefit from key enhancements in the Linux 2.6 kernel, including improved real-time performance, easier porting to new computers, support for large memory models, support for microcontrollers and an improved I/O system,” Steve Graves, McObject CEO, said. “McObject is pleased to add tiny footprint, real-time data management to the reasons for choosing BlueCat 5.0 for embedded projects ranging from consumer electronics to large-scale defense and communications systems.”
