McObject has launched eXtremeDB-64, the 64bit version of its eXtremeDB 3.0 in-memory embedded database for real-time enterprise and embedded systems. eXtremeDB-64 supports databases that are hundreds of times larger than the 32bit version, providing a powerful new tool in fields such as finance, science, computer simulation and game production that demand instantaneous sorting, retrieval and manipulation of massive databases.

"Embedded, in-memory data management that takes full advantage of 64bit processing can significantly increase the productivity benefits and user experience of these and many other applications. For this reason, we expect the marketplace to welcome eXtremeDB-64," said Steve Graves, McObject co-founder and CEO.

eXtremeDB-64 is now available on the following operating systems and processors: HP-UX (Itanium), Solaris (Sparc), Linux64 (x64) and Windows Server 2003 64bit (x64). Compared to traditional 32bit processors, 64bit technology approximately doubles the amount of data a CPU can handle per clock cycle, and increases the amount of memory a system can address, from approximately 3Gbyte, to at least one terabyte.

eXtremeDB-64, as an in-memory database system, leverages the increased available memory to support much larger databases, while continuing to deliver the performance-related benefits inherent in its all-in-memory design. These include elimination of disk I/O, file management and caching logic, data transfer and duplication, and other sources of performance overhead that are "hard-wired" into on-disk databases.
