McObject Announces General Release of eXtremeDB Financial Edition 
In-Memory Database Brings Low-Latency Performance and Proven
Reliability to Financial Services 
ISSAQUAH, WA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/12/12 --  McObject(R), provider of
innovative database solutions for real-time applications, announced
today the immediate availability of eXtremeDB Financial Edition, its
high-performance, fault-tolerant in-memory database system (IMDS)
designed for time-critical capital markets systems such as
algorithmic trading, risk management, order matching and quantitative
analysis.  
McObject also announced that TradeStation Technologies, a Monex Group
company (TSE: 8698) and an affiliate of the award-winning
broker-dealer and futures commission merchant, TradeStation
Securities, plans to adopt eXtremeDB Financial Edition for data
management in its next-generation order-execution system. "Our
technology differentiates us. Among other awards, Barron's magazine
recognized TradeStation in 2012 for the best trading experience and
technology among online brokerages," said T. Keith Black,
TradeStation Technologies' Chief Technology Officer. "eXtremeDB
Financial Edition demonstrated performance that is an order of
magnitude better than other DBMSs we evaluated, and we are excited
about the end-user benefits it will help to deliver as part of our
live trading technology." 
The eXtremeDB product family has a proven track record in embedded
systems where it is trusted in millions of deployments, in fields
ranging from aerospace to telecommunications, defense and industrial
control. eXtremeDB Financial Edition builds on that solid foundation,
bringing flexible development tools, high reliability and the lowest
possible latency for an IMDS to financial services. The product
includes an array of new features built for trading organizations and
others developing technology for capital markets. 
These features include: 


 
--  Support for columnar data storage to improve efficiency in handling
    time-series data such as trades and quotes. With eXtremeDB Financial
    Edition, system designers can combine a columnar layout with
    traditional rows in a single database design, to optimize run-time
    efficiency.
    
    
--  A rich library of more than 80 vector-based statistical functions that
    cut latency in time-series data management and maximize efficiency of
    L1/L2 cache use.
    
    
--  Improved clustering technology that boosts distributed database
    performance and scalability.
    
    
--  A new GUI database performance monitor, to observe the effect of
    changes to the database or application on transaction throughput,
    memory consumption and other key factors when fine-tuning to reduce
    latency.

  
eXtremeDB Financial Edition delivers speed without sacrificing
reliability. Database transactions fully support the ACID (atomicity,
consistency, isolation, durability) properties, while transaction
logging provides recoverability. Optional Clustering and High
Availability sub-systems distribute the database to multiple hardware
nodes, to guarantee uninterrupted processing in the event of failure
on one node. A fast, native C/C++ API is type-safe, greatly reducing
the potential for run-time bugs. SQL/ODBC, JDBC and native Java and
C# APIs are provided as well -- development with eXtremeDB Financial
Edition is faster, because there are no proprietary languages to
learn. All of these features are available at no additional cost. 
eXtremeDB Financial Edition is available now through McObject. For
