Object Design has announced Objectstore 6.0, a major upgrade to its flagship data management system.
Version 6.0 will ship from 9 April. The update adds better Java virtual machine caching and support for JDK 2.0, support for 64bit platforms and improved data server capabilities.
The new version also preserves the product's compatibility with legacy systems.
Object Design envisages the product sitting side by side with relational databases in many installations.
"We see ourselves being used by companies who want to capture new markets by using their existing data better," explained Larry Alston, vice president of marketing at Object Design.
He said that in many companies, the main 'database of record' is from one of the top three database vendors, but an Objectstore installation is used as a complementary system for its advanced caching capabilities.
"We're looking at practically in memory database speeds," he claimed.
Object Design's customers include BT, Nomura, Knight-Ridder and the Motley Fool Web site. Pricing for ObjectStore 6.0 has not yet been announced.
