The world's number two telecom RTOS vendor Enea has continued its adoption of Linux, adding a Linux port to the latest version of its real-time, fault-tolerant in-memory relational database management system (RDBMS). Polyhedra 5.1 also features an improved Java API. It targets data management applications such as process-control, telemetry, and remote monitoring, as well as telecommunications, data communications, and server equipment.
According to Enea, Polyhedra 5.1 couples the benefits of a SQL database with several unique features. For example, Polyhedra enables client applications to launch "active" queries that return ongoing, up-to-date results as live data change, resulting in a "fully current display of data as it is being generated and stored." This feature makes Polyhedra useful in situations requiring alarm reporting or configuration change reporting, the company says.
