How difficult is it to port eXtremeDB to different operating systems?
eXtremeDB is designed and implemented to be a highly portable DBMS. Currently, eXtremeDB runs on Win32 and Win64 platforms, Linux, many Unix platforms, and various embedded operating systems including VxWorks, INTEGRITY, ThreadX, eCos, FreeRTOS and QNX, and target CPUs including x86, PowerPC, ARM, MIPS, and others. The list of supported platforms is constantly expanding. See our list of free trial software.
What compilers are used to build eXtremeDB?
The eXtremeDB runtime can be built with the Microsoft Visual C/C++ compiler, gcc and all ANSI C compliant compilers. The eXtremeDB Data Definition Language compiler is currently built with Microsoft Visual Studio for Windows and gcc for Unix/Linux platforms.
Can eXtremeDB operate without an operating system?
Yes, in single-threaded mode. In this scenario, the eXtremeDB runtime does not use any operating systems services, or the C runtime library. Of course, as an in-memory database, eXtremeDB does not require a file system. Contact us to learn more.
Can eXtremeDB operate without a file system?
eXtremeDB’s core in-memory database system design does not require any file system. If a file system is present, to allow data persistence through a system crash, eXtremeDB provides backup functionality via its stream-oriented “save” and “load” interfaces. eXtremeDB can backup databases not only to a file, but also to any stream that is available in the operating environment, such as a pipe or a socket.
