InterSystems Corp. on Monday made its
post-relational database available for Mac OS X. Caché includes three ways — object, SQL and multi-dimensional — to simultaneously access the same data. It features Unified Data Architecture, which automatically makes information available as both objects and tables, transactional bit-map indexing and connectivity with such monitoring tools as BMC’s Patrol and Fortel’s Sightline.
Caché’s Web technology features automatic XML mapping, Web Services publication of any Caché method, server pages that reside on the data server, application tags that execute functions on the data server and/or a Web browser, hyper-events that invoke server-side operations and update the current Web page without reloading it and a Web Form Wizard that automatically builds HTML forms from object classes.
Pricing starts at US$200 for the single-user version and $1,000 for a multi-user set-up. A fully functional, unlimited use copy of Caché can be downloaded from the InterSYstems Web site or requested for delivery on a CD. InterSystems doesn’t note system requirements on its Web site.
