Keywords:Prime Creation? eXtremeDB? embedded database? McObject?

Prime Creation Technology Ltd., a Hong Kong-based provider of mobile communications infrastructure, has chosen eXtremeDB in-memory embedded database from McObject for real-time call routing in new Linux- and Web Services-based technology for mobile network operators and wireless application service providers.

The application takes advantage of eXtremeDB's High Availability Application Framework to deliver the "five nines" (99.999 percent up-time) reliability required for telecommunications infrastructure. In the system, eXtremeDB provides a real-time Linux-based cache for an Oracle database of customer and routing information. Prime Creation's innovative architecture relies on Web Services and HTTP/SOAP to synchronize eXtremeDB with the system's Oracle back end.

According to Michael Tso, director of technology development, Prime Creation chose eXtremeDB over competing real-time databases largely due to eXtremeDB's High Availability (HA) extension. eXtremeDB HA enables deployment of multiple fully synchronized eXtremeDB databases within the same hardware device or across multiple, widely distributed systems. A time-cognizant, two-phase commit protocol facilitates instantaneous fail-over, with zero replication-induced latency, in the event of hardware or software failure.
