McObject has released version 6.0 of its eXtremeDB In-Memory Database System (IMDS) and related product family. The upgrade adds support for distributed query processing, which improves database speed and scalability by leveraging the processing power, memory and bandwidth of multiple hardware nodes in carrying out queries.
Additional improvements in version 6.0 benefit developers and end-users in areas including performance, ease of development and operating system support. With distributed query processing, eXtremeDB partitions a database and distributes query processing across multiple servers, CPUs and/or CPU cores. Performance is accelerated – dramatically, in some cases – via parallel execution of database operations and by harnessing the capabilities of many host computers rather than just one.
New eXtremeDB 6.0 features:
- Python support
- Avionics platform support
- Trigram database index
- More flexible transaction scheduling
- Data compression
- Covered index option
- Binary schema evolution improvement
- Encryption extension
