GT.M - (ACID KV/doc store (from Philly)) added to DB Throwdown

Did you know that there is a fully ACID KV/document store actively developed in our own back yard?

Did you know that it is developed by people that actively participate in the Philly tech community?

You will next Thursday, as K.S. Bhaskar talks about GT.M at the Database Throwdown - PhillyDB's Philly Tech Week event.  If you haven't already done so, RSVP here:

GT.M is a database engine with scalability proven in the largest real-time core processing systems in production at financial institutions worldwide, as well as in large, well known healthcare institutions, but with a small footprint that scales down to use in small clinics, virtual machines and software appliances.

The GT.M data model is a hierarchical associative memory (i.e., multi-dimensional array) that imposes no restrictions on the data types of the indexes and the content - the application logic can impose any schema, dictionary or data organization suited to its problem domain. GT.M's compiler for the standard M (also known as MUMPS) scripting language implements full support for ACID (Atomic, Consistent, Isolated, Durable) transactions, using optimistic concurrency control and software transactional memory (STM) that resolves the common mismatch between databases and programming languages. Its unique ability to create and deploy logical multi-site configurations of applications provides unrivaled continuity of business in the face of not just unplanned events, but also planned events, including planned events that include changes to application logic and schema.

Worldwide, GT.M is used in multiple industries, including finance, health care, transportation, manufacturing and others. GT.M supplies the processing power to the FIS Profile™ enterprise banking application.

The Database Throwdown is about exploring the multitude of options for data storage available to developers today.  The event also features Vertica, Oracle, Basho and HortonWorks.
