FairCom Rolls Latest Release of c-tree Plus and c-tree Servers

11/29/2004 - FairCom Corporation, a leading provider of high performance database technology, announced the availability of new releases of their proven database development toolkit, the c-tree Plus SDK, in conjunction with new releases of their high performance database servers, the c-tree Server and c-treeSQL Server. This new technology offers developers enhanced performance, new server monitoring tools, a .NET assembly, and SQL support for additional platforms.

Performance enhancements are a major highlight of FairComís version 8 releases. FairCom engineers spent considerable time profiling and tuning the c-tree Servers, particularly in the area of transaction processing. Using real-world performance tests, FairCom applied significant enhancements which benefit transaction and SQL query throughput and overall server scalability. In one test, improvements of almost 400% were shown between the new and previous releases of the server.

New tools have also been added to help monitor server operations. A wealth of performance-oriented statistics can be captured at specified intervals or on demand with the server's new Performance Snapshot. Notes Craig Bailey, a Senior FairCom engineer, ďWith this performance monitoring utility, developers can gain valuable insights to assist in tuning the c-tree Server for their specific application. It can further assist with problem identification and resolution after deployment.Ē

FairCom also introduced support for the Microsoft.NET Framework in the form of a new .NET assembly for c-tree Plus. This gives application developers working in a .NET environment a simple interface into the proven core of c-tree Plus. It integrates with VB, .NET, C#, J#, and other .NET languages.

With this new release, FairComís c-treeSQL Server now supports a number of additional operating systems including Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris, AIX, and HP-UX in addition to the support for Windows introduced in the last release. This c-treeSQL Server provides a high performance SQL interface into the proven core of the c-tree Server. Tailored for high volume production environments, the c-treeSQL Server includes optimizations such as sophisticated query rewrite techniques to improve nested query performance and join-order optimization to improve performance of queries joining many tables.

Numerous additional features are also included in this release, and additional details can be found at FairComís Web site www.faircom.com.
