[From ANTs Software
BURLINGAME, California, May 19, 2003 - ANTs Software (OTCBB:ANTS) announced the launch of the ANTs Data Server 2.0, a SQL database management system that delivers improved performance and reduced costs for applications constrained by access contention problems. It is designed specifically for applications requiring intensive updating such as messaging services, stock trading, reservation systems and package tracking. From initial concept through development, and now in deployment, the ANTs Data Server is designed to enable simultaneous access and updating by thousands of concurrent users.
Breakthrough High-performance Database Technology
"The ANTs Data Server is built on a message-passing, micro threading architecture, a fundamental shift in the design of database systems," said Gary Ebersole, president and chief operating officer for ANTs Software. "Unlike conventional databases developed 15-20 years ago before the widespread commercial use of the Internet and wireless systems, the patent-pending ANTs Data Server design is optimized to run today's online applications-those that must support hundreds, even thousands, of simultaneous connections, day in and day out. A full-featured, standards-compliant database, the ANTs Data Server can be used as a standalone database or used to complement conventional database systems." The ANTs Data Server enables businesses to cost-effectively offload applications with database "hot spots" to improve their database throughput by as much as 81 times current levels.
