Objectivity, Inc. is a global technology leader in data management products and services for software applications with the most demanding data management challenges. The company’s flagship product, Objectivity/DB, is used by government, security, complex manufacturing, commercial services, science, and engineering organizations to manage massive volumes of complex, interrelated data.
Cloud computing is rapidly becoming a new paradigm in application development and deployment. Companies are turning away from relational database structures that don’t scale in favor of distributed infrastructures that can help them leverage the benefits of the flexible, low-cost cloud environment. With Objectivity/DB’s flexible architecture, deploying in a cloud environment is a natural progression.
Objectivity/DB has always been ideally suited for this type of computing. The company’s founders eschewed the single server design in traditional databases and focused on providing a distributed database that could scale nearly infinitely. Objectivity/DB was the first database to demonstrate the ability to run in batch and online modes required by the IBM grid compliant application model. Cloud computing uses grid concepts to provide distributed service and storage resources across the Internet on demand.
Within minutes, you could be using Amazon’s EC2 (Elastic Cloud Compute) or other cloud computing platforms to develop and deploy applications on a data management solution which is uniquely architected for distributed environments, completely interoperable among multiple instances and clients running virtually any language and platform, and which is used by leaders in business and industry, as well as government agencies responsible for national security and intelligence, to get the most out of their data.
