eCube Systems releases NXTera High Performance RPC Middleware for Ingres

With Ingres Database 9.2, eCube's NXTera RPC-based high performance middleware product meets the demands of high speed computing

Houston, Texas. June 11, 2009

eCube Systems, a leading provider of tools and middleware products for enterprise systems, announced today that its NXTera High Performance RPC Middleware product now supports Ingres Database9.2., the leading open source database that helps organizations develop and manage business critical applications at an affordable cost.

Whether in Grid, Cloud or demanding computational and transactional environments, NXTera provides the performance required for high-speed distributed computing. NXTera is employed to link independent application logic running on multiple computing platforms over high speed networks, while enabling interaction with highly reliable and fast transactional databases.

Ingres Database 9.2 has an architecture that allows high-speed queries to run in parallel. It is a perfect match for NXTera High Performance RPC Middleware. Ingres Database 9.2 has built-in scalability that allows the database's capacity to grow with demand, and its highly available architecture ensures data availability -- even during failures.

"NXTera's support for Ingres makes it easier for open source developers and enterprises committed to high-speed computing to engineer fast multi-tiered applications based on Ingres Database 9.2," said Bill Maimone, senior vice president of worldwide engineering at Ingres. "We see Ingres and eCube technology delivering real benefits in our key markets of government, sciences, manufacturing, and media."

NXTera is next generation multi-threaded RPC middleware based on the respected Entera™ middleware product. Both are widely used in Fortune 500 companies -- in many cases with Ingres database software.

"eCube Systems is proud to renew its relationship with Ingres and provide enhanced Ingres support in the latest version of NXTera," says Kevin Barnes, President and CEO, eCube Systems. "Ingres played a key role in the success of the Entera platform. We anticipate continued success with Ingres Database 9.2 and NXTera teaming to provide powerful benefits in performance and productivity for high-performance computing."

NXTera enables developers to quickly develop new applications with Ingres on 64-bit Linux and Solaris OS-based systems. Additionally, NXTera delivers Eclipse-based development of high performance RPC-based applications and integration with other contemporary architectures, such as J2EE and Web Services
