New edge-computing features include massively parallel data replication, automatic aggregation, OPC UA and improved ThingWorx® integration
BOSTON – Global database technology leader FairCom Corporation announced today the release of c-treeEDGE IoT Database V2, which includes new features that increase flexibility for data management in edge computing and improved integration with ThingWorx®. The product launch announcement occurred during the LiveWorx® digital transformation event for the industrial enterprise in Boston.
c-treeEDGE is a unique data management solution that empowers organizations to perform fast, transaction-controlled database operations on the edge while opening the door for mission-critical, and possibly, life-saving decisions to be made much faster without the need to rely solely on the cloud. Among the new features in c-treeEDGE V2 are automatic data aggregation, massively parallel data replication, and OPC UA support. c-treeEDGE is based on the same technology that powers FairCom’s flagship product: c-treeACE, a unified multimodel database, which is used by leading organizations such as Verizon, UPS, Software AG and Rockwell Automation. Like in c-treeACE, FairCom’s NAV API has a prominent role in c-treeEDGE by providing unique speed and developer control.
“FairCom added specific features to c-treeEDGE to make it easy to collect, aggregate, synchronize, and process data across the edge, IT networks and the cloud,” said FairCom Chief Architect Mike Bowers. “c-treeEDGE has a very small footprint and runs quickly on embedded devices and larger machines. It supports all major operating systems and hardware configurations. These features make it realistic for an application to process data at or near the location where data is generated. This opens the door for faster, smarter and more efficient operations on the edge.”
Also released today, was the improved c-treeEDGE IoT Database connection to PTC’s ThingWorxIIoT platform, which provides users of the ThingWorx IIoT platform development environment an easy avenue to integrate with their c-treeEDGE Database. Available on ThingWorx’s marketplace for any developer to use, the connection allows for replication to the cloud, easy data mapping and modeling and enhanced integration with PTC’s AlwaysOn protocol.
According to FairCom Chief Officer of Operations Alysha Brown, c-treeEDGE V2 is designed to provide organizations with flexibility, and rapid development of applications running on the edge.
“FairCom has a history of producing solutions that provide developers with the ability to build databases that meet their unique needs. c-treeEDGE is no exception,” Brown said. “This version of the c-treeEDGE Database is a powerful tool for mission-critical operations in edge computing and Internet of Things environments, especially for developers who use ThingWorx. And as with our flagship product, c-treeACE, developers will be able to easily evolve their c-treeEDGE Database as technology and business requirements change.”
