Objectivity and LynuxWorks Team Up to Port Objectivity/DB(R) to LynxOS(R) RTOS For Latus Lightworks

Objectivity's Distributed Database Architecture and Scalability on LynxOS

Real-Time Engine Create High Performance Operating Environments



Apr 16, 2001, 01:00 ET from Objectivity, Inc.

    MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Objectivity, Inc., the
 leading provider of higher performance database engines for the management of
 complex data for sophisticated applications, and LynuxWorks, today announced
 they have ported Objectivity's high performance database solution to
 LynuxWorks' LynxOS real-time operating system. The integrated solution has
 been deployed into Latus Lightworks' long-haul optical network transmission
 system.
     With Objectivity/DB, large data transmission systems like
 Latus Lightworks' optical transmission system can now write data directly from
 collection devices into the database where the information can be analyzed and
 disseminated. LynxOS real-time operating system supports the most demanding
 performance requirements, providing the deterministic behavior and reliable
 performance for any mission-critical telecom application. Latus Lightworks
 will use LynxOS and Objectivity/DB to store data from equipment in every tier
 of its network architecture. This approach reduces design and development
 cycles and training time, distributes functionality to points where it is most
 efficient, and simplifies administration and maintenance while improving
 system-wide performance.
     The distributed architecture of Objectivity/DB is designed to service a
 broad range of complex, high performance applications. Objectivity is the only
 database management system (DBMS) provider to deliver a single database
 solution that interoperates across the full processing spectrum, from massive
 parallel servers to memory resident real-time environments.
     LynuxWorks' LynxOS is a hard real-time operating system that combines
 performance, reliability, and scalability together with patented technology
 for real-time event handling. LynxOS meets the highest reliability and
 deterministic response standards and is used in a variety of products, from
 communications infrastructure equipment to mission-critical flight control
 systems.
     "The integrated solution that Objectivity and LynuxWorks have delivered is
 an important part of our commitment to deliver a new network architecture
 designed to provide unprecedented scalability for the data-centric optical
 networks," said Todd Nordby, Vice President of Engineering at Latus
 Lightworks.
     "LynxOS provides open, standard application programming interfaces that
 make it easy to port third-party solutions, such as Objectivity/DB. We're
 pleased to furnish our customers, such as Latus Lightworks, this software
 foundation, which will benefit them with shorter time to market and a broader
 choice for tools," said Bob Morris, vice president of marketing for
 LynuxWorks. "Objectivity/DB's lightweight, objected-oriented kernel is
 platform independent, making real-time porting quick and easy. It is ideal for
 our customers creating applications in a real-time environment."
     "Our ability to deploy database solutions that interoperate across the
 full processing spectrum positions Objectivity to drive deeper into the
 infrastructure of telecommunications, process control and large data
 acquisition systems," said Jeffrey D. Foote, Vice President of Marketing for
 Objectivity. "The distributed architecture of Objectivity/DB complements
 LynxOS by allowing real-time devices to share complex data with downstream
 applications."
     The federated architecture of Objectivity/DB provides access to
 distributed databases from multiple tiers within the network. Objectivity/DB
 delivers dramatically increased data throughput while utilizing existing
 customer hardware investments, and shortens time-to-market by reducing
 software overhead. Its fully distributed architecture allows for massive
 scalability and application availability. A 64-bit object identifier provides
 a single logical view of a database that may contain hundreds of terabytes of
 data, which may be distributed across numerous platforms.
