Solid Information Technology, Corp.

Solid provides the leading embeddable data management platform for network infrastructure applications. The Solid platform is a self-managing, reliable and scalable framework for developing mobile, stand-alone, highly available, or distributed applications.

At the core of the platform is the Solid BoostEngine™, a high-performance, small footprint, relational database management system (RDBMS). BoostEngine allows data to be located, table by table, either on disk for economy or in memory for speed. It can run in client/server mode, or be linked into the application for enhanced performance or to reduce an application's component count.

The integrated Solid CarrierGrade Option™ provides a hot-standby pair of databases on redundant hardware. If the primary hardware should go down, the backup database can take over in under 60msec, enabling Solid to support applications with very high availability requirements. The database pair automatically heals itself back into its normal fault tolerant state after downed equipment is placed back into service.

The Solid SmartFlow Option™ adds an integrated asynchronous data distribution facility that can move data automatically between Solid databases while maintaining global control of data integrity. Data distribution is defined declaratively and does not require applications to be aware that they are participating in a distributed system.

The platform was purpose-designed for network infrastructure applications, and requires effectively no management.

Solid is a privately held company with worldwide headquarters in Cupertino, Calif. The company \ also has regional offices in the U.S., Europe, and Japan.
