Versant And Fraunhofer FOKUS Enter Into A Strategic Lab Partnership

"The strategic partnership with Versant Corporation enables us to integrate an object database into the Open IPTV Ecosystem," says Dr. Stefan Arbanowski of Fraunhofer FOKUS. "The Open IPTV Ecosystem definitely benefits from Versant's multi-session management, transparent object persistence and enterprise class high availability and scalability. The transition from our traditional implementation was easy and straight forward, and the technical benefits in terms of performance and scalability are quite impressive."

Versant Object Database

The Versant Object Database (VOD) provides powerful advantages to developers creating C++, Java or .NET object models, supporting massive concurrency and large data sets. The advantages of VOD's performance and scalability provide for a more efficient production environment, often supporting 10x more concurrent users and 10x faster data access speed compared to relational databases.

FOKUS Open IPTV Ecosystem

The Open IPTV Ecosystem represents a test environment and reference implementation for standardized IPTV, as specified by different Standard Development Organizations (SDO) including ETSI TISPAN ( http://www.etsi.org/tispan/) and the Open IPTV Forum ( http://www.oipf.tv/ ).
