ESC San Jose, Ca. – Birdstep Technology Inc.'s Raima Division here announced the dual release of its Raima Database Manager Products, RDM Embedded version 9.1 and RDM Server version 8.2.
These two releases of Birdstep's embedded database products provide enhanced interoperability between RDM Embedded and RDM Server, extending RDM's High Availibility offering.
With these two releases Birdstep's Raima Division now provides the ability to replicate data from RDM Embedded to RDM Server, opening up all kinds of possible solutions for moving information from small embedded devices all the way up to Enterprise databases.
This new replication feature provides support for multiple instances of RDM Embedded database to perform one way replication into a RDM Server database. The RDM Server database will be in master mode thus allowing any connected server application to manage the replicated data content in addition to other data.
Also new in RDM Embedded 9.1 is native BLOB (Binary Large Object) support which allows application developers to store binary data like mp3s, videos, pictures and other binary data, natively within the RDM database. The benefit of this feature is that binary data can now be handled by the transaction system the same way as any other data.
In RDM Embedded 9.1, the database address has been extended, removing the 256 file and ~16 million records per file limitations of previous versions. RDM Embedded can now be configured as a VLDB (Very Large Database) which is typically constrained only by hardware limitations.
The free RDM Embedded and RDM Server SDKs are available on the Birdstep Technology Raima Division Website at: www.raima.com.
