ITTIA is introducing the second beta release of its ITTIA DB � FUEL cross-platform embedded database, which extends the capabilities of popular database system for embedded and mobile devices. FUEL now includes support for mobile versions of Windows, including Windows Mobile Pocket PC and Windows CE, and features speed improvements.
Since mobile and embedded devices have different requirements than enterprise servers, processing efficiency and memory footprint are of critical importance. ITTIA has built its FUEL database from the ground up to support developers of modern embedded devices.
FUEL can be used in devices with substantially less than one megabyte of memory, even while including such features as Binary Large Object support (BLOBs), Multi-Versioning Concurrency Control (MVCC), robust transaction support with automatic recovery, hot backup capability, and support for database encryption.
FUEL also delivers advantages by being portable between Windows, Linux and other operating systems. Not only is the syntax for accessing the database identical on all platforms, but so is the on-disk data format, making deployment, backup and data migration a breeze.
