MultiValue databases continue to impress users with new updates and modern functionality. Three solutions have been chosen as the best of the best in this year’s Readers’ Choice Awards.
Each year, Database Trends and Applications presents the Readers’ Choice Awards, providing a unique opportunity to recognize companies whose products are selected by experts whose opinions carry more weight than any others—you, the readers.
The MultiValue database dates back to the mid-1960s, with Don Nelson and Dick Pick widely credited as the founding fathers of the technology. Also referred to as Pick or MultiDimensional, a key advantage of MultiValue, is the database structure’s use of attributes that can have multiple values, rather than one single value as with relational technology.
MultiValue software vendors continue to address emerging challenges and opportunities that are affecting the IT landscape by adding features such as support for 64-bit computing, RESTful services, and new languages, enhanced replication for HA/DR, cloud enablement, mobile access, and integration with other enterprise systems, including relational and other NoSQL database management systems.
The top three vote getters are - Rocket D3/U2/UniVerse/UniData, Revelation OpenInsight, and Pick Cloud DBaaS.
