Birdstep Releases RDM Server 6.0 Embeddable Database Management System

11/18/2004 - Birdstep Technology (OSE: BIRD) announced the latest version of its RDM Server embeddable database management system. The new version of RDM Server includes increased JDBC 3.0 support, XML import/export, and enhanced Dynamic DDL functionality to dynamically alter tables. RDM Server is specifically designed with unique tools for performance enhancement and database customization.

Compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit platforms, RDM Server is an embeddable database management system employing a client/server architecture for business critical information that must be available immediately and reliably. Like all Birdstep RDM databases, RDM Server 6.0 is deployed with the developer’s application, giving the developer control and predictability over the application’s data management. In addition, Birdstep RDM Server is designed to minimize the total cost of ownership by specializing in high performance, data security and fault tolerance, which allows for quick recovery and zero downtime incase of a system failure.

Birdstep RDM Server offers a cost-effective and scalable solution for developers of embedded applications in diverse industries and markets, such as financial services, telecommunications and e-business applications.

“Customers can count on Birdstep’s embeddable databases to meet their database needs for business critical applications,” said Duncan Bates, Product Manager, Birdstep Technology. “Birdstep RDM Server 6.0 has been optimized to provide developers with XML import/export, so that RDM Server can interoperate with a variety of databases in your system. We also listened to our customers’ needs and added enhanced Dynamic DDL functionality so that developers can now add or drop columns, modify column data types and size, rename columns and add/drop foreign keys. Plus, the latest version allows us to offer additional platform support, along with increasing our JDBC 3.0 support.”

RDM Server 6.0 facilitates thin-client and browser-based architectures by permitting loading of application processing directly, onto the database server. RDM Server 6.0 delivers a high-performance, automatically recoverable, multi-user transaction system which meets the database “ACID” test for business critical applications: Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation and Durability.
