ANTs Software, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance database consolidation and computing middleware announces today the acquisition of ANTs Data Server (ADS) from Four Js Development Tools. The purchase returns the full featured, standards-compliant relational database management system to its founding company.

“We are very pleased to have ADS as part of our product portfolio again,” said Rik Sanchez, CEO of ANTs Software, Inc. “It complements our ANTs Compatibility Server (ACS) and is part of our overall strategy to rebuild and strengthen the ANTs suite of products that offer enhanced performance at an affordable price.” Effective immediately, ANTs will be providing Technical support for all customers using ANTs Data Server or Genero DB.

“We have refocused our development efforts to Cloud and mobile application infrastructure to facilitate the passage to a SaaS business model for enterprises and ISVs,” said Bryn Jenkins, COO of Four Js Development Tools. “We are glad to see ADS back home where it belongs and wish ANTs every success for the future.”

ANTs Data Server (ADS) is an ACID and SQL 92- 99 compliant relational database that combines the speed of an in-memory database with the persistence of a disk-based database. ADS offers unprecedented scalability over rival in-memory databases that are bound by RAM limits, and whose performance is significantly degraded under large user loads. ANTs patented lock-free technology is a game changer that actually increases throughput as user load increases. Its compatibility layer provides a cost-effective migration path from Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, Sybase and IBM Informix.

“ADS 3.8 introduces innovative, unique capabilities that redefine what can be accomplished in high-demand applications such as the Cloud,” continued Sanchez. “The level of performance and advanced capabilities of ADS makes it an essential tool for industry professionals who demand unmatched scalability and transaction rates.”
