About Solid Products
Solid is the pioneer of an innovative approach to managing data that focuses on providing a data management platform for highly distributed applications. Solid Embedded Engine is a highly reliable, scalable, and embeddable relational data management solution used to manage distributed data in applications such as network infrastructure management and control, and mobile data-rich applications (telematics), as well as supports local autonomy in the distributed enterprise. Solidís solutions are designed around the idea of distributed data. With other data management products, distribution is treated as an ďadd-onĒ feature, however, with Solidís solutions, distribution is key to Solidís customers in supporting increasingly complex and dispersed next-generation networks.

Solid Embedded Engine is used in unattended devices requiring ease of management, as well as in network components that must intelligently and quickly manage user, configuration, and performance data. Solidís robust multithreaded architecture features all the functionality of a sophisticated, full-featured data management solution ó in a small-footprint and a maintenance-free, scalable package. In the future, Solid plans to work with HP to validate Solidís HotStandby-based synchronous database mirroring technology, which is widely used as a basis for even higher - 99.999% - uptime requirements.
