McObject Launches German Web Site at www.mcobject.de
August 8, 2005 — To better serve the growing German embedded systems industry, McObject® has launched a German-language Web site at www.mcobject.de. The new site posts the latest information on McObject, its eXtremeDB™ in-memory embedded database and related technology, as well as market-specific content such as links to German articles and customers.
McObject’s new site underscores the company’s growing emphasis on serving German-speaking technologists, a commitment demonstrated earlier this year when the company exhibited at the Embedded World 2005 Conference and Exhibition in Nuremburg. McObject also chose to launch a major new product – the eXtremeSQL interface for eXtremeDB – at that event.
“German-speaking countries are home to many of the world’s great industrial concerns. Demand for the most advanced embedded systems software is growing as computerized products and manufacturing processes become more deeply intelligent,” Steve Graves, McObject CEO and co-founder, said. “We are pleased to offer our Web-based information auf Deutsch to programmers, journalists and others with an interest in McObject and eXtremeDB.”
“With design wins in automotive, manufacturing and military/aerospace embedded systems software already in hand, McObject has established a solid foundation for growth in the German-speaking market,” said Rudi Latuske, general manager of ARS Software GmbH, McObject’s distributor in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
“The new German-language Web site at www.mcobject.de enhances McObject’s ability to serve developers in these countries, and underscores the local support, sales and development expertise available through ARS Software,” Latuske said.
With eXtremeDB, McObject offers a database management system to meet the unique performance requirements and resource constraints of intelligent, connected devices. eXtremeDB provides critical data management features—including transactions, concurrent access, High Availability and a high-level data definition language—while maintaining a tiny code footprint (as little as 50K). As an in-memory database system (IMDS), eXtremeDB delivers the real-time responsiveness demanded by consumer electronics, network infrastructure gear, industrial control systems and other embedded systems.
eXtremeDB also provides sophisticated development capabilities, such as support for varied data and query types, a high-level data definition language, and a powerful debugging environment including a self-diagnostic API that catches a wide range of common programming errors before they slip into runtime code.
Founded by embedded database and real-time systems experts, McObject offers proven data management technology that makes intelligent devices smarter, more reliable and more cost-effective to develop and maintain. McObject counts among its customers industry leaders such as DaimlerChrysler, Peiker acustic, Tyco Thermal Controls, F5 Networks, Genesis Microchip, Motorola and Boeing. McObject, based in Issaquah, WA, is committed to providing innovative technology and first rate services to customers and partners.
