This led to the company’s founding and launch of the eXtremeDB In-Memory Database System (IMDS) product family, the first embedded DBMS created specifically for real-time embedded systems. The technology penetrated virtually every embedded market sector, enabling data-intensive applications to achieve unmatched performance, reliability and efficiency. Organizations using eXtremeDB continue to reap tangible benefits through higher developer productivity, faster time-to-market, and lower manufacturing costs (due to eXtremeDB’s frugal RAM and CPU demands).
But eXtremeDB’s impact reverberated beyond embedded software. As the product gained features to support enterprise-level scalability and interoperability, developers of high-performance desktop-, workstation- and server-based systems discovered an IMDS designed with a relentless focus on efficiency and speed. For example, eXtremeDB’s short execution path (code size is just 150K) complements the quest to slash latency in capital markets applications; its 64-bit support and SQL ODBC/JDBC interfaces, along with options for recoverability and persistence, position eXtremeDB as a feature-rich in-memory database system alternative to (non-DBMS) object caching solutions.
While still anticipating and meeting the needs of embedded systems, today McObject is equally focused on this “real-time enterprise” sector that includes financial trading, e-commerce, analytics and more. Customers today include BAE Systems, EADS, JVC, National Stock Exchange (NSE) of India, MyYearbook.com, DIRECTV, Tyco Thermal Controls, F5 Networks, CA, Motorola and Boeing.
Along the way, McObject has built a global network of partners and resellers, and eXtremeDB has gained important new capabilities, including:
- eXtremeDB Cluster, High Availability (HA) and Transaction Logging editions for the highest degree of durability in embedded data management
- Multiple APIs, including type-safe and native C/C++, SQL ODBC/JDBC and native C# and Java interfaces, for maximum developer flexibility
- eXtremeDB Fusion edition, which adds hybrid storage: selected tables can be designated for on-disk storage, with flexible caching
Based in Federal Way, WA, McObject is committed to developing outstanding products and providing first-rate support to customers and partners. McObject’s proven technology and service offerings enable customers to focus on their main goal of bringing compelling products to market faster, at an overall lower cost of development.
