A Star is Born – Genero db

The world’s fastest, scalable relational database now compatible with IBM Informix

IRVING, TX AND BURLINGAME, CA, April 18, 2006 – Four Js Development Tools Inc., a leading provider of development and deployment infrastructure, today announced its joint development relationship with ANTs Software Inc. [OTCCBB:ANTS] to create Genero(r) db – a revolutionary IBM Informix(r)-compatible relational database that will be exclusively sold and marketed by Four Js Development Tools.

“We were looking for a state-of-the-art database engine to resolve two problems our customers were experiencing,” said Bryn Jenkins, chief operating officer of Four Js Development Tools. “The first was to provide a sophisticated transaction-oriented database capable of scaling to thousands of concurrent users; the second was to significantly improve their margins and cost of ownership over traditional vendors. When we discovered ANTs, we knew that the fit was right.”

Genero is a unified development and deployment environment for business process oriented applications used by the finance, banking, insurance, telco, media, retail, transportation and logistics market segments as well as government agencies, including emergency services, national defense, state education and city financing. The Genero development tool supports all leading relational database products including IBM DB2(r), IBM Informix, MS(r)SQL Server, MySQL(r), Oracle(r), PostgreSQL and Sybase(r) and these will continue to be supported as usual. With Genero db, customers will now be able to benefit from performance gains significantly higher than their incumbent vendor, while slashing their cost of ownership anywhere between a factor of 50 and 75 percent.
Genero db derives these advantages from the ANTs Data Server, a full featured, standards-compliant relational database management system based on a breakthrough, high-performance SQL query execution engine that incorporates innovative, lock-free operations. Its pioneering database architecture incorporates six patent-pending technologies designed to deliver extremely high database throughput for heavy workload applications.

“ANTs is today’s database performance leader and the next rising star,” said Jenkins. “It’s a logical addition to our product family and one that will sit well with our customers – many of which are household names. Many have woken to the fact that they have been milked over the last several years and are now ready to vote with their wallets, saving money on databases so that they can better invest it elsewhere.”

Customers don’t have to be Informix users to benefit from the easy transition to Genero db. Native support for Microsoft and Oracle are also provided including their stored procedures and trigger programs. This means that development teams need minimal training and can migrate to Genero db quickly, painlessly and inexpensively.

“We are excited that Four Js has chosen to provide native support for the ANTs Data Server for its flagship Genero product suite,” said Boyd Pearce, ANTs chief executive officer. “Four Js customers now have easy access to a breakthrough database management system that delivers performance and scalability unmatched by any other commercial RDBMS.”

Designed for high-availability applications, Genero db includes disaster recovery capabilities such as replication and failover with automatic recovery. Its patented architecture, replication and on-line backup have a minimal affect on performance and enable impressive recovery speed. Robust disaster recovery capabilities are requirements for compliance with a wide range of regulations such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, Gramm-Leach Bliley and others. About ANTs software inc.
