FairCom announces availability of c-treeACE V10.3 update release
New version of c‑treeACE database now available for immediate download from FairCom
Note: c-treeACE became FairCom DB in November 2020.
COLUMBIA, Mo. (January 23, 2014) — FairCom, a database company that builds high-performance, engineering-level database technology, today announced release V10.3 of its industry-leading c‑treeACE® database, which will provide customers with a number of upgrades and advantages, including:
New Compression Options Save Space – High-performance Run Length Encoding (RLE), now available, outperforms zlib compression in many cases. User-defined compression is also available using a library the customer provides. With this new feature, FairCom may be able to help customers address special requirements.
Shared Memory Advances Boost Performance – V10 introduced Shared Memory support on UNIX systems to greatly improve the performance of local host applications. V10.3 further improves the functioning and performance of Shared Memory connections.
Batch Updates Improve Efficiency – c‑treeACE provides batch operations that have the potential to greatly improve performance when a group of related records needs to be processed. This release includes improvements that can result in greater efficiency when performing updates.
SQL Enhancements – The SQL statement length limits have been removed allowing nearly unlimited statements (up to 32MB) for the most complex SQL needs. In addition, system tables are now encrypted by default to protect database meta data.
Graphical Tools for Any Platform – The graphic tools are now available in Java so developers and administrators can leverage them on any platform that supports c‑treeACE and Java. The functionality of several tools has been combined into two of these powerful new tools:
- c‑treeACE Explorer allows you to view and edit both SQL and ISAM databases
- c‑treeACE Monitor provides gauges and statistics for monitoring c‑tree databases
“Our team is pleased to present the updated edition of the c‑treeACE database technology to our existing and future customers,” said Randal Hoff, FairCom. “The new version is built upon our proven V10 release and will continue a steady progression of improvements to put our customers ahead.”
c‑treeACE V10.3 will be available for download starting January 27, 2014 from FairCom Corporation.
