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. For registration or more information about the TimesTwenty
Challenge, please visit www.ants.com/TimesTwenty.
About The ANTs Data Server
The ANTs Data Server is a database management system based on a
breakthrough, high-performance SQL query execution engine that incorporates
innovative, lock-free operations. Performance is typically five to 15 times
faster than other database management systems. The ANTs Data Server provides
essential features for data-center applications: high-availability,
replication and remote monitoring and management. The ANTs Data Server is
natively-compatible with the most popular stored procedure languages so
applications can be ported more easily. Performance-critical database
operations in the financial services, wireless, hosted applications and
logistics industries can be deployed on fewer, low-cost servers with
dramatically reduced license fees and administrative costs.
The ANTs Data Server 3.2 will be available in August.
