Seattle, Wash. – Birdstep Technology is making its Raima RDM Server embedded database available for the Green Hills INTEGRITY IEC 61508 SIL 3 certified operating system, targeted at industrial safety apps.
RDM Server streamlines the development of safety critical industrial automation applications through standard API's and achieves paramount data redundancy through a customizable replication engine.
According to Duncan Bates, VP of Product Management for the Raima products, the industrial control, process automation and the transportation industries have, for years, struggled with the problem of integrating efficient data management within its applications.
“This is mainly due to the industry's strict device safety and security requirements which are extremely costly to meet,” he said. “Developers of these systems incur large expenses in analyzing and testing as well as automation software to prevent any possibility of system catastrophic failure.”
