ITASCA LOOKS FOR NEW LEASE OF LIFE FOR OBJECT DATABASE WITH IBEX

By CBR Staff Writer

Ibex Corp SA, of Archamps, France has acquired the low-profile Itasca distributed object data management system from Minneapolis-based Itasca Systems Inc, and is hoping to breathe new life into what was one of the first object-oriented databases around. Based on a series of prototypes originally developed in 1985 at the Microelectronics & Computer Technology Corp, Object-Oriented and Distributed Systems Laboratory in Austin, Texas Itasca is built on top of Common Lisp, and employs a distributed architecture with private and shared objects spread across Unix servers on a local area network. It runs on Sun Microsystems Inc, IBM Corp, Digital Equipment Corp and Silicon Graphics Inc systems. Applications can be written in C++, C, CLOS, or Lisp. Ibex has its own tool set, Distributed Archiving and Workflow Network built on top of Itasca and a 2.3.5 performance release was scheduled for the end of September. A full release of Itasca is now scheduled for 1996. Ibex has been the European distributor of Itasca since 1992, and has a US subsidiary, Ibex Object Systems Inc, based in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
