McObject Collaborates with Wind River to Deliver the First-Ever Deterministic Database System for VxWorks-Based Real-Time Embedded Systems


FEDERAL WAY, Washington, September 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – McObject®, an innovative pioneer in on-board database systems, collaborated with Wind River® and today announced the availability of McObject’s revolutionary solution eXto shiverDB / rt database management system (DBMS) for real-time embedded systems based on VxWorks®.

eXto shiverDB / rt supports stringent real-time system requirements with the introduction of a new time-sensitive transaction manager. Timing knowledge ensures predictable transaction execution, ensuring that tasks involving database activity (read and / or write) are successfully committed or aborted on time, and never miss (pass) deadlines. Real-time determinism is increasingly critical in systems such as autonomous driving, positive train control, defense and other systems where failure can result in property damage or endanger lives.

In its first version eXto shiverDB / rt is an in-memory DBMS; support for persistent databases will follow in the first quarter of 2022. As conventional eXto shiverDB, it provides critical data management functionality including transactions, concurrent access, and a high level data definition language. As an in-memory database system (IMDS), eXto shiverDB / rt eliminates indeterminate file I / O and streamlines processing by forgoing caching logic. This allows it to provide the highest level of real-time responsiveness with minimum code size. eXto shiverDB / rt also provides sophisticated development capabilities, such as support for various types of data and queries, native APIs, and a powerful debugging environment that includes a self-diagnostic API to detect costly faults before they go. they don’t slip into production code.

Wind River’s industry-leading VxWorks Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) has been used to provide the safety, security and reliability needed to design and build critical on-board systems that simply need to be running. VxWorks is a priority-based deterministic preemptive RTOS with low latency and minimal jitter. It is based on a scalable and scalable architecture to help you respond quickly to changing market demands and technological advancements.

“Real-time IoT and embedded applications require a powerful, small, real-time database system. McObject has been a leader in this field for over 20 years and is pleased to continue its nearly 20-year partnership with Wind River and support industry leader VxWorks RTOS as the initial launch platform for eXto shiverDB / rt, ”said Chris Mureen, McObject COO.

“Through our collaboration with McObject, we are helping our customers modernize and accelerate the delivery of reliable intelligent systems that demand real-time requirements,” said Michel Chabroux, senior director, product management, Wind River. “We look forward to building on our proven successes with McObject to help advance the next generation of intelligent cloud-connected systems with increasingly demanding advanced computing needs. “
