BURLINGAME, Calif., June 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ANTs software, inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: ANTS), a developer of high-performance SQL database management systems, today announced version 3.2 of the ANTs Data Server (ADS), the only lock-free relational database management system architected for the next generation of trading applications running on Linux. Supporting popular 64-bit Linux operating system implementations running on low-cost AMD Opteron platforms, ADS 3.2 sets a new price-performance benchmark, allowing very large OLTP and real-time analytical processing and reporting in main memory. The ANTs Data Server takes advantage of the virtually unlimited memory addressing capabilities of the AMD Opteron processor and low-cost Linux software. ADS is at least twice as fast as in-memory databases such as those from Oracle-TimesTen, and five to 15 times faster than traditional databases. The performance advantage grows with more concurrent users and contention for "hot tables." ADS also supports 10 to 20 times the number of simultaneous connections. At the same time, ADS offers a 60 to 90 percent lower total cost of ownership (TCO) because less expensive hardware is needed, complexity is reduced, software costs are reduced and significantly less development and maintenance are required. "ANTs Data Server 3.2 is the only database ready for the next generation of trading platforms necessary for regulatory compliance and Straight Through Processing," said Boyd Pearce, ANTs software chief executive officer. "The powerful combination of ANTs Data Server and 64-bit Linux on Opteron adds to our 64-bit Solaris offering and has resulted in significant price-performance improvements above and beyond the standard we had previously established." The ANTs Data Server can provide a dramatic increase in performance and decrease in user response time during peak workloads when deployed either standalone or as a helper database to offload performance-critical operations on "hot-spot" tables from the database of record. Stored procedure support for Oracle, Sybase and Microsoft RDBMSs means this can be accomplished with minimal application changes while providing the replication, disaster recovery and database management features enterprises need. The ANTs Data Server 3.2 is supported by ANTs' "TimesTwenty Challenge," an unprecedented offer to convert an application currently deployed with an Oracle, Microsoft or Sybase RDBMS, at no cost, for evaluation purposes, and achieve a 2X or greater performance advantage over in-memory databases, all in two weeks or less.
