Marxmeier Software released the Version B.08.00 build of its Eloquence database for the Windows platform this month. Among many enhancements, the release improves scalability through better threading, enhances recovery utility to support point-in-time recovery, as well as fine-tunes a utility that mimics the QUERY report tool used on the HP 3000.
Eloquence has notched many success stories during the Transition Era, starting with a notable contribution to Summit Information Systems' credit union application migration. The new features, listed in an extensive technical note at the Marxmeier Web site, deliver the same capabilities that Marxmeier rolled out in its HP-UX version of B.08.00 last fall. The database server now supports replication and case-insensitive indexes, for example. The product that has included its own programming language now has full Windows keyboard mapping, too.
Marxmeier has been adding the features through optional, soft-rollout patches throughout 2008, but this official release brings all of the software to the Windows 32-bit Intel (x86) and 64-bit (x64) architectures. HP's fifth-generation Proliant server line, one of the more popular blade-style hardware platforms for migrating 3000 sites, employs Xeon CPUs to run Windows Server 2008 x64.
