McObject Puts Database Reliability on Radar Screen At Upcoming Military & Aerospace Industry Events

November 7, 2011 — McObject®, developer of the eXtremeDB® In-Memory Database System (IMDS) and related product family, brings its expertise and products for high performance, fault-tolerant data management to military and aerospace software developers at two high-profile industry events this month. McObject is an exhibitor in booth 2004 at MILCOM 2011, the premier international conference for military communications, November 8-10 in Baltimore, Maryland, and will exhibit at the MILESTONE Military Electronics Development Conference in Los Angeles on November 17. McObject CEO and Co-Founder Steve Graves will speak on database system reliability at the MILESTONE event.

Excitement has built for the MILESTONE event since organizers announced that Dr. Neil Siegel, vice president and chief engineer of Northrop Grumman’s Information Systems sector, will deliver the keynote address. Siegel leads the sector’s Technology and Engineering group, which includes oversight of 14,000-plus engineering professionals. His efforts are credited with helping Northrop Grumman make key advances in battlefield digitization, among other accomplishments.

Also at the MILESTONE conference, McObject’s Steve Graves speaks on “Fault-Tolerant Memory Management for Mission Critical Embedded Systems”. His presentation focuses on mitigating possible risks related to memory management while optimizing code for efficiency and performance. Graves’ talk is scheduled for 2:20 p.m. at the event, which takes place at the Embassy Suites Los Angeles.

In McObject’s eXtremeDB, milaero developers gain a real-time commercial, off-the-shelf (COTS) embedded database system with an impressive industry track record. eXtremeDB maximizes uptime and slashes time-to-market, compared to other off-the-shelf database systems, or to custom data management code. It offers a tiny footprint (approximately 150K code size) alongside advanced capabilities including high availability and clustering, hybrid in-memory/on-disk data storage, and unique features to ensure ultra-reliable code.

As a result, defense and aerospace leaders including BAE Systems, EADS, SAIC, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, IAI, STM and Boeing have chosen eXtremeDB for use in technology ranging from combat jet avionics to battle tank command and control systems.

“Many recent enhancements to eXtremeDB, such as our new eXtremeDB Cluster edition, focus on improving reliability, scalability and performance. For engineers building aerospace and defense systems, these are critical concerns when evaluating embedded database systems to handle the growing volumes of data within their applications. We look forward to many productive discussions around these topics with developers at MILCOM 2011 and MILESTONE Military Electronics Development Conference,” said Chris Mureen, McObject’s chief operating officer.
