McObject published a white paper about solutions for database durability and recoverability. The technical paper shares tests using the eXtremeDB IMDS and on-disk DBMS technology, along with commercially available hardware including Fusion ioDrive2 NAND flash memory from Fusion-io. The title of the article is: Seeking Fast, Durable Data Management: A Database System and Persistent Storage Benchmark.
McObject has ported their Perst open source, object-oriented embedded database system to Microsoft’s Silverlight technology for Web applications. With Perst for .NET, developers using Silverlight can now include true database management system (DBMS) features in their rich Web client applications, including adding persistence to this data by storing it on local file systems. Perst is available for Java and .NET, including Java ME and .NET Compact Framework.
