"Brings Field-Proven Highly Scalable Data Management to Linux Environments."

"Object Design, a division of eXcelon Corporation, today announced that its ObjectStore data management software is now shipping for Linux operating systems. Called ObjectStore 6.0 for Linux i386, it brings a robust, mature object database management system (ODBMS) to the rapidly growing enterprise Linux marketplace."

"By porting the core ObjectStore engine to Linux, Object Design is opening new vistas of data management to the Linux community by giving it a high-performance database and middle-tier data management engine. Object Design's products will facilitate the development of the enterprise Linux market as Linux moves from Web-server applications to become a key operating system for e-business and embedded solutions in markets serving B2C, B2B, financial services and telecommunications, as well as mobile computing and application service providers."

"We are witnessing the fastest growth of any operating system in history," said Brian Otis, Object Design president and chief operating officer. "Linux, running on cost effective hardware with enterprise capable software, has proven itself to be a compelling combination for organizations of all sizes. Now, it's ready to step up to supporting corporate data operations. With this announcement, Object Design joins companies like IBM, Oracle and HP, that are porting proven applications to give Linux the same level of applications sophistication enjoyed in other operating environments."
