eXtremeDB is a proven energy and smart grid solution.
Up and down the energy industry supply chain, emerging solutions generate a flood of data that must be captured and analyzed in real-time.
With help from McObject’s eXtremeDB, optimization technology can dramatically boost utilities’ power generation yields. Distribution networks can become self-healing and even bi-directional, enabling end-users to contribute power back to the grid. Buildings, factories and residences can fine-tune consumption through intelligent control systems.
Why is the energy industry choosing the eXtremeDB product family for systems ranging from nuclear plant safety to solar power optimization?
Performance – Core in-memory database system (IMDS) architecture delivers responsiveness measured in microseconds, which is critical for applications that are responsible for grid or plant safety, or for making real-time decisions to optimize energy production.
Efficiency – With a tiny footprint eXtremeDB is a practical choice for field-based devices that incorporate minimal hardware resources.
Fault-tolerant – Power generation and transmission applications are mission-critical, and the eXtremeDB High Availability edition provides a proven, “always on” database solution.
Virtually indestructible – Software coding errors can compromise safety. eXtremeDB’s type-safe API is a key tool that eliminates a common category of bugs, and its other advanced debugging features add further stability.
Data integrity – ACID (Atomic, Consistent, Isolated and Durable) transactions support the gold standard in protecting data integrity.
Multi-core optimized – Multi-version concurrency control (MVCC) transaction manager boosts speed and scalability in multi-threaded, multi-core environments, which are increasingly the norm in energy industry applications.
Scalable – eXtremeDB-64 (64-bit edition) is proven in in-memory deployments scaling to more than a terabyte of data, with breakthrough performance. Ideal for managing the massive amounts of data needed to predict and control events in today’s highly complex power grid
Flexible storage – The eXtremeDB Hybrid database offers the strengths of the on-disk and all-in-memory approaches to data management in a single database system. Applications can blend persistent (i.e. flash or hard disk) and in-memory storage, enabling optimization for persistence and performance as well as cost and form factor.
Open replication – Fine-grained data-sharing with enterprise systems (such as energy companies’ billing, analysis and commerce applications) via eXtremeDB Data Relay.
Portable – Broadest support for OSs and RTOSs (including the ability to run without an OS), source code available
Proven – eXtremeDB customer deployments include nuclear power plants, solar power electronics, “smart” building systems, power grid fault detection and prevention, and in fields such as aerospace, defense and communications that demand maximum performance and reliability.
