Executives at ANTs Software Inc. are hoping that hefty licensing fees generally associated with Oracle's namesake database management system (DBMS) will prompt customers to take a look at the Ants Data Server (ADS), a high performance database that was designed to replace or compliment Oracle and other DBMS market leaders like MySQL, Sybase and Microsoft SQL Server.
