McObject and Waveaxis Target India’s Embedded Software Market
July 22, 2008 — McObject®, developer of the eXtremeDB™ in-memory embedded database system, and Waveaxis, a fast-growing Bangalore-based product engineering, software development and sales company, announced a partnership in which Waveaxis will distribute and provide integration services for McObject’s real-time embedded database software in India.
Strong and growing demand in India for a streamlined, high performance embedded database with eXtremeDB’s unique features drove McObject and Waveaxis to form the pact, McObject Chief Operating Officer Chris Mureen said.
“McObject has already enjoyed success in India, with local organizations, such as Lifetree Convergence and the Center for the Development of Telematics (C-DOT), and India-based development groups for U.S. firms including SOMA Networks, Bioscrypt (an L-1 company) and Genesis Microchip, using eXtremeDB in their successful technology products,” Mureen said.
“In Waveaxis, we gain an experienced partner, in India’s software capitol of Bangalore, who will work with McObject to rapidly grow market share. Waveaxis will amplify our message, identify and pursue emerging opportunities and lend a direct, hands-on approach to meeting developers’ data management needs,” Mureen said.
McObject and Waveaxis share strengths that predict a winning partnership, Mureen said. Both are strong in embedded software markets including industrial control, automation, consumer electronics and communications systems. They are committed to helping customers in these and other industries meet their toughest challenges, such as providing fault tolerance and real-time performance, and possess the highly skilled technical staff to succeed, Mureen said.
“We have past experience with embedded database technologies and understand well the key features required in the embedded software market. A DBMS must be very compact and, above all, fast. Professional developers are the primary users, so the database must have sophisticated and flexible indexing, debugging tools and application programming interfaces,” Waveaxis President Yafoor Hussain said.
“What we’ve found in eXtremeDB was a streamlined, very powerful database engine that was clearly designed for embedded systems. eXtremeDB’s proven High Availability, and the ability to optimize for performance and persistence using eXtremeDB Fusion’s hybrid in-memory/on-disk data storage, provide distinct competitive advantages,” he said.
“The Indian software industry is booming, with development activity being outsourced here, large companies launching development centers, and products companies emerging in India that are hungry for the new advanced technology to give their products an edge worldwide. This provides a huge opportunity for high quality embedded products such as eXtremeDB,” Hussain said.
In eXtremeDB, McObject provides a highly portable database management system that meets the unique performance requirements and resource constraints of embedded systems and intelligent, connected devices. eXtremeDB provides critical data management features—-including transactions, concurrent access, and a high-level data definition language—-while maintaining a code footprint as small as 50K. eXtremeDB is available as a standard in-memory database system (IMDS) and in editions offering high availability, hybrid in-memory/on-disk data storage, kernel mode data management, 64-bit support and more.
