Birdstep Technology Inc. Raima Division (OSE: BIRD), which offers state-of-the-art embedded database technologies, announced the upcoming release of two Raima Database Manager Products, RDM Embedded version 9.1 and RDM Server version 8.2. These two releases of Birdstep Technology Raima Division’s popular embedded database products will provide enhanced interoperability between RDM Embedded and RDM Server, extending RDM’s High Availibility offering.
With the announcement of the two releases Birdstep’s Raima Division provides the ability to replicate data from RDM Embedded to RDM Server, opening up all kinds of possible solutions for moving information from small embedded devices all the way up to Enterprise databases. The new replication feature provides support for multiple RDM Embedded database instances to perform one way replication into a RDM Server database. The RDM Server database will be in master mode, allowing any connected server application to manage the replicated data content in addition to other data.
Also new in RDM Embedded 9.1 is native BLOB (Binary Large Object) support which allows application developers to store data like mp3s, videos, pictures and other binary data, natively within the RDM database. The benefit of this feature is that this type of data can now be handled just like any other data by the transaction system.
In RDM Embedded 9.1, we extended the database address which removes the 256 file and ~16 million records per file limitations of previous versions. RDM Embedded can now be configured as a VLDB (Very Large Database) which is typically restricted by hardware limitations.
“With this announcement we offer our world wide customers an integrated embedded database solution like no other in the market, in terms of reliability, high performance and scalability from the smallest devices,” says Steinar Sande CEO of Birdstep Technology, Inc. “The many new capabilities in this release were driven by , our customers and partners. This exciting new release delivers reliable, secure, efficient data management in a integrated product family, at an affordable cost.”
The free RDM Embedded and RDM Server SDKs will be available on the Birdstep Technology Raima Division Website for download in April.
About The Raima Database Manager Family
Raima released the first version of the Raima embedded database in 1984. Since then the family has grown into three successful embedded database products.

Building on the success of RDM Embedded, Raima released the product in a client/server configuration under the name Velocis, now called RDM Server. Augmenting the two is RDM Mobile, ideally suited for consumer electronics and low cost mobile devices such as set-top boxes, mp3 players etc.
