Podcast Debate: Database Speed and Security on the IoT
EmbeddedComputing.com April 29, 2022 Does storing data on the edge minimize or increase data security risk? (Spoiler: we think it increases data security risk.)
On Embedded Database Management Systems. Q&A with Christopher J. Mureen
ODBMS.org, April 1, 2022 “Since the inception and creation of eXtremeDB, McObject has taken the view that a DBMS should be flexible to address all developer requirements. “
On Using In Memory Database. Interview with Jonah H. Harris
ODBMS.org, March 21, 2022 “Whether it’s adding features, fixing bugs, or improving performance, it all comes down to the quality of the code.”–Jonah H. Harris.
AI and ML research is rapidly growing. Staying on top of those advancements to identify key strategic opportunities and improvements that deliver novel and strategic solutions, which solidify our position as leaders in personal connection, is paramount.
Embedded Databases in Real-Time Systems
Circuit Cellar, March 14, 2022, Real-time systems are evolving at an incredible rate. Real-time systems used to be relatively simple, like the anti-lock braking systems in aircraft and, later, automobiles. Today, real-time systems are more complex. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are kind of the poster child.
11 Myths About In-Memory Database Systems
Electronic Design, February 14, 2022, In-memory database systems have become popular and commonplace in the 2000s. Nevertheless, misinformation and misunderstandings still abound about the technology. This article will attempt to set the record straight.
Why your mission-critical application needs a real-time database management system
Logic.nl January 4, 2022, What are the determining factors when selecting a hard real-time database management system?
McObject CEO Steve Graves will be presenting “Real-Time Database Management in Mission and Safety-Critical Applications” at the 14th ESE Kongress, digital.
This presentation will review the important distinctions of a deterministic real-time database management system, and crucial features for systems that cannot miss deadlines. Read more in ODBMS.org, or please find his talk in this schedule.
Keeping A Mission-Critical Deterministic DBMS On Time
Open-source and commercial database management systems (DBMSs) have been used in embedded systems for more than 20 years. For the most part, developers don’t even debate whether to buy or build their own DBMS for embedded systems; that component is almost always bought. Get the news from EmbeddedComputing.com
Hard real-time systems are following the same trajectory as embedded and soft real-time systems: They’re more elaborate systems that are being required to do more with more data that’s more complex. Historically, real-time system developers have had to separate database management from hard real-time tasks, do without, or develop their own real-time database management. Read the Wind River blog.
The terms “code size” and “footprint” are often used interchangeably. But they are not the same—code size is a subset of footprint. In this article, McObject CEO Steve Graves explains the difference and relevance. He then describes some techniques to minimize footprint. Read more in Circuit Cellar
Change Data Capture in Embedded Databases
Change Data Capture (CDC) is broadly defined as tracking changes in a database. The purposes of tracking changes are many and varied. CDC in embedded database systems can be implemented in several different ways that are sometimes invisible to applications, and ways that applications can exploit for data sharing, responding to events, and incremental back up. Read the article in Embedded Computing Design.
Comparing Optimistic and Pessimistic Concurrency
Usually (with rare exception), a database is a shared resource, meaning that it is used concurrently by two or more tasks. This leads us to the topic of concurrency control; i.e. how do we coordinate a tasks’ access to the database? This is part-and-parcel of providing a database management system that adheres to the ACID properties. Read the article.
The importance of distributed databases for the Internet of Things
With IoT applications, the need for data volume in databases can increase rapidly. Time and space efficient use of logical databases is crucial. So-called distributed databases play an important role here – but which approach is the most suitable for IoT applications? Read this article on embedded-software-engineering.de (Page will translate)
When choosing your embedded database, areas that truly matter and distinguish solutions are write speed, automatic synchronization at scale, and an architecture that skillfully contends with nodes when they are offline. Read the article from MCG Global Services.
This paper will cover the types of distributed database systems in the context of edge, fog and cloud computing, explain “when, how and why” the data is distributed, and why those details make certain distributed database systems applicable (or not) to specific needs in edge, fog and cloud computing. Read the article on Embedded-Computing.com
