Raima, a premium provider of high performance database technology, has extended RDM version 12.0 to offer support for mobile platforms including Android 2.3.3 SDK and iOS 7.
RDM 12 mobile edition is a compact, mobile database management system ideal for the developer who is creating a standalone application for mobile devices, such as a smart phone or tablet. The mobile version of RDM 12 extends iOS support to version 7, and adds Android support for the first time. It brings the power of RDM 12 to mobile devices where CPU resources and memory will be limited, providing a flexible and reliable solution for collecting, storing and sorting large volumes of data.
Key features of RDM 12 for mobile devices include full multi-core support, multiple indexing methods, and pure and hybrid in-memory database operation. RDM 12 mobile efficiently allocates transaction processing to take advantage of multi-core systems in smart phones and tablets for optimal speed, boosting performance across the board and by over 50% under certain read and write scenarios.
The database supports multiple indexing methods including B-tree and hash indices, configured to optimize application and performance requirements.
RDM 12 mobile can be configured to run on-disk, in-memory or a hybrid of the two, combining the speed of an in-memory database with the durability of on-disk in a single system.
Raima CTO Wayne Warren comments: “The power and flexibility of today’s smart phones and tablets makes them viable platforms for database applications with a sophistication not formerly considered possible. But taking full advantage requires a database solution that makes full use of these devices’ capabilities while recognizing their limitations. With RDM 12 for mobile devices, Raima has developed a high performance yet compact version of the powerful RDM application, specifically optimized for smart phones and tablets.”
