Enea Releases Polyhedra 8.2

High Availability Database Management System Further Optimized for Linux and Windows Platforms

Enea® (Nordic Exchange/Small Cap/ENEA), a global software and services company focused on solutions for communication-driven products, today announced that it has released version 8.2 of its Polyhedra® In-Memory Database Management System (IMDB).  With this release, Enea offers greater flexibility and ease of integration to developers and systems integrators working on Linux and Windows platforms – making the power and reliability of the fault-tolerant Polyhedra IMDB even more accessible.   

Enea Polyhedra 8.2 offers a number of new capabilities providing greater ease of use. In addition to IPv6 support for client-server communication, Polyhedra's Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) library for Linux can now be used with the unixODBC driver manager – making it easier to write Linux applications that talk both to a Polyhedra and a third-party database. Other enhancements include improved integration with Enea® Element, a high-availability framework used primarily in communications equipment.  When using Enea® LINX interprocess communication protocol, currently available for the Linux and EneaOSE®  operating systems, client applications may use their own schedulers – avoiding the need for polling to see if messages have arrived. The result is a tighter system integration with Enea Element, a more natural programming style and a more efficient and responsive system.  Additionally, Polyhedra 8.2 can be used with Windows Visual C++ 2009, and works on both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows Server 2008.  

"Polyhedra has been designed from the ground for high performance and extreme availability," said Mathias Båth, senior vice president of marketing at Enea. "With this release it also emerges as the gold standard for ease of use and quick integration for developers building advanced Linux and Windows systems." 

Enea Polyhedra IMDB is an in-memory, SQL-based relational database system, designed for use in embedded systems. Polyhedra's memory-resident design and active query technology can boost performance by orders of magnitude compared to traditional disk based relational database systems and is available in 32-bit and 64-bit versions. Polyhedra is used at the core of some of the world's most advanced and important data-intensive 3G wireless, IP network infrastructure, and industrial control systems. Polyhedra provides high-availability features such as transaction journaling, hot standby support, dynamic schema update and inter-version compatibility that make it the database management system of choice for equipment manufacturers and service providers who require 'five nines' or better uptime.
