ITTIA has released a Machine-to-Machine (M2M) data management solution based on its ITTIA DB SQL peer-to-peer replication technology, enabling embedded systems to efficiently and reliably manage local data that is transparently shared with other systems.
With ITTIA DB SQL, developers can build applications that benefit from standard data management features, such as relational model SQL queries, multithreaded access, and ACID protection. For example, a home automation application can monitor the cycle of a washing machine, schedule a coffee machine to finish brewing at a specific time, and check that lights are off when away from home.
Residents need to access and control information on these devices through multiple interfaces, whether mounted in the home or on a personal smart phone or tablet. A database for such devices must provide a framework for communication within the M2M infrastructure.
A sharp increase is expected in device communication and data exchange as more devices are connected to the Internet and other networks to share information with other devices. ITTIA DB SQL's M2M solution connects databases across systems, handling data exchange and high availability for the application.
It is an ideal database for M2M data management, with redundant copies continuously maintained so that data is always available and devices can always wake up and communicate. Since ITTIA DB SQL is a cross-platform technology, it can be implemented across any combination of hardware and operating system software.
ITTIA DB SQL is easy to configure for a variety of M2M scenarios, whether data flows bidirectionally or only in one direction. Dynamic configuration settings are stored directly in each database file, and can be applied without any restart or reload step. Changes to the local database are automatically tracked and can be exchanged with peers whenever a connection is available.
