In addition solution specific extension packages are available for the RDMe Core providing additional solution specific functionality to the core database engine. They include:

    • RDM Embedded High Availability (RDMe HA™) - extension for adding greater high-availability functionality to the RDM Core Engine. The RDMe HA solution provides additional reliability to the time tested and dependable RDM database engine. We have added components in this HA solution that will help embedded system developers achieve the highest availability while maintaining high-performance, real-time, small footprint embedded database solution.
    • RDM Embedded dataFlowâ„¢ (RDMe dataFlow™) - extension solution for adding data flow functionality to the RDM Core Engine. In this RDMe dataFlow extension we have included components that enable embedded system developers to develop sophisticated applications capable of moving information collected on the smallest devices up to the largest enterprise systems.
    • RDM Embedded Distributed (RDMe Distributed™) - extension for distributed data functionality to the RDM core database engine. In this RDMe Distributed solution we have included components that enable embedded application developers to create applications with the ability to access data distributed across multiple embedded systems mounted on a back plane or across geographical continents.
