Telecom and networking equipment demands maximum speed, reliability and availability.
As these devices grow smarter, they manage more complex data. How can they do it without the latency and vulnerability common in database software?
The eXtremeDB Solution: Real-Time Performance, High Availability, Patricia Trie Indexes And More!
By meeting this challenge, McObject’s eXtremeDB has emerged as the leading real-time embedded database system for telecom/netcom. F5 Networks, Motorola, Nokia Siemens Networks, EF Johnson, SOMA Networks and Genband are just a few of the innovators who rely on McObject's database, and comms applications leveraging eXtremeDB include:
- Rules engines
- Carrier ENUM registry
- Network fault management
- eNodeB (LTE)
- Roaming service
- Chassis management
- Revenue assurance
- Network emulation and test
- Control plane database
The eXtremeDB Database Product Family
In eXtremeDB, application developers gain a solution that includes:
- An eXtremeDB In-Memory Database System edition, embodying the core product architecture and delivering key IMDS benefits including fast performance and a tiny footprint (RAM and CPU)
- eXtremeDB High Availability edition for proven fault-tolerance
- eXtremeDB Cluster - increases available net processing power, reduces expansion costs, and delivers high scalability and reliability
- 64-bit support (eXtremeDB-64) to manage terabyte-plus databases in RAM
- eXtremeDB Fusion hybrid technology, to add persistent (on-disk) storage for selected record types
- Tools to develop highly optimized embedded software:
- Fast, fine-grained data-sharing with enterprise systems via eXtremeDB Data Relay
- Broadest support for OSs and RTOSs – including the ability to run without an OS (“bare bones boards”)
