In a series of announcements, Sybase Inc yesterday unveiled two new versions of its a Adaptive Server database, one aimed at decision support environments and the other for 64-bit platforms. The Emeryville, California-based company says that its Adaptive Server IQ12 is engineered specifically for decision support environments. It has a full-function SQL engine and includes new IQ Multiplexing technology, which Sybase says enables salability and VLDB support for enterprise warehouse environments with large numbers of users and concurrent queries. The database is scheduled to be available next month on IBM, HP, Sun, Compaq, Unix and Windows NT while the multiplexing enhancement is scheduled to be available in May. Pricing will be announced at launch. The company also released the latest version of Adaptive Server for 64-bit operating environments. The database has been available for the Digital Unix platform since 1995 but now Sybase has added support, available immediately, for Sun Solaris, Hewlett-Packard UX and IBM AIX. The new version of Adaptive Server Enterprise also supports transparent migration from 32-bit to 64-bit platforms without requiring changes to the database or applications, the company claims. Sybase also confirmed that the next full blown version of Adaptive Server, code-named Avatar and due in the next few months, will ship with support for embedded native Java classes, although a company spokesperson stressed that this didn’t represent a fundamental shift in Sybase strategy to support object relational technology. The release will be more of a functional and performance enhancement, he said, we will support objects through Java on the server as we think that’s the most economical way of doing it.
