"Computer Associates International, Inc. (CA) today announced it will begin shipping Ingres II with support for Linux platforms in the fourth quarter of this year. The release follows CA's extremely successful Open Beta program, through which thousands of copies of Ingres II Linux Edition provided the Linux community with the benefits of a high-performance, state-of-the-art relational database management system (RDBMS)."

"Ingres II Linux Edition helps lower the costs of developing, deploying and managing mission-critical applications and associated networking and database management tools. Geared toward markets that have adopted Linux--such as higher education and "bootstrapping" e-commerce ventures--Ingres II now provides Linux users with the same tools that have been economically implemented in a wide range of computing environments..."

"Ingres II Linux Edition offers users a full copy of the Ingres II database engine, along with core database functions. These include variable page size, row-level locking, support for binary large objects (BLOBs), interfaces for C, compatibility with IngPerl (database access from the Perl scripting language), and Internet publishing capabilities that allow for development using the Apache Server."
