Linux Journal: Another Day, Another Database [db.linux]

"db.linux, like many other open-source embedded databases on the market, is a scalable, extensible product applicable to telecommunications, network/systems management and real-time contexts. Combining both relational and pointer-based navigational network database models, db.linux uses a C API library and, with C or C++ application development tools, allows developers to create high-performance embedded database applications."

"Centura Software Corporation has partnered with OpenAvenue, a self-titled 'open-source service provider' for the actual hosting and management of the db.linux source code. The hosting will take place at OpenAvenue's OpenAvenue Source Infrastructure System (OAsis), a web-based infrastructure of technology and services (still in beta). Like many such on-line open-source directories, OAsis will work to 'facilitate collaboration among db.linux users and developers". The site will also feature project hosting, life-cycle management and collaboration on a global scale."

"db.linux runs on Red Hat Linux 6.0 and 'descends', says Centura's Andrew Klein, from Centura's Raima Database Manager (RDM), a product that has been a mainstay of Centura's line for the past 15 years. Companies such as AOL, Hewlett-Packard, Nortel and Cigma have used Centura's RDM in their set-top boxes, games and other products. It is this success that db.linux hopes to leverage with its foray into the open-source marketplace."
