LiveTime Software announced the expansion of databases supported by LiveTime Support Desk and LiveTime Help Desk to include Ingres r3 open source RDBMS from Computer Associates International Inc. The release, due Q4, will allow LiveTime's J2EE support applications to capitalize on Ingres' mature and feature rich open source DBMS, and run across a diverse range of platforms including Windows, Solaris, HP-UX, AIX and Red-Hat Linux.
LiveTime Software is one of the first vendors to react to CA's release of the Ingres code under its CA Trusted Open Source License. LiveTime anticipates its top-tier customers will take advantage of this new feature as Ingres offers low cost of ownership and a scalable information management component to LiveTime support application deployments. "Ingres' performance, scalability and mature feature-set give it an advantage over many open source DBMSes," said George Vossos, CTO of LiveTime Software.
Organizations that require the extra security of cluster failover for the information repository are also expected to deploy LiveTime Support Desk and LiveTime Help Desk with Ingres. Many open source databases only provide standard cluster failover by way of an automatic restart if the database dies. The Ingres Grid Option is a more flexible solution as it allows the LiveTime repository database nodes to attach to the storage substructure for more robust failover. This is essential when running applications in mission critical environments.
With its trusted reliability, earned over 30 years, Ingres promises to be the main contender for many high volume deployments of these mission-critical applications in large-scale enterprises.
"LiveTime was able to seamlessly embed Ingres into their applications," said Darren Williams, CEO of LiveTime Software, "and it will provide customers additional flexibility when deploying on high volume sites."
