Birdstep Technology (OSE: BIRD), which offers state of the art embedded database technologies, today announced that Foreks selected RDM Embedded for its generation FX product family of real-time data & trading applications.

"In order to provide true value added to our customer's data solution needs we needed to use the fastest embedded database engine on the market. We conducted extensive performance evaluations during which Birdstep's engineering team supported us very professionally" says Omer YILDIRIM, Director of Software Development for FX products. "In the end RDM Embedded clearly stood out as the best product and with a very competent support team, it was a simple choice to make"

"Birdstep is delighted being a provider for the Foreks solution. The architectural goals of RDM Embedded are high performance, ability to manage complex data relationships and structures, full ACID transaction compliancy, and easy accessibility through industrial standard languages", says Duncan Bates, VP of Product Management for RDM Embedded. "Foreks is yet another testimonial that complex data management needs a flexible database solution. With traditional relational databases you often find yourself trying to force a round peg through a square hole, in these cases you should look outside the box and see if there are other solutions, such as the RDM products, which provide industrial standard interfaces as well as an efficient native interface."
