ODBMS worries

  • Bouyancy of the commercial marketspace?

    • Introduction of Computer Associates “Jasmine” pure ODBMS (targetted at multimedia data)
    • Oracle et al. paying lip-service to OO with Object features “bolted on” to their fundamentally RDBMS technology
    • Breathtaking fall of Versant stock!
    • Still no IPO for Objectivity
  • Conversion of “legacy” ODBMS data from one system to another?

    • 100 PetaBytes via an ODMG-compliant text file?!
    • Good argument for keeping raw data outside the ODBMS, in simple binary files (BUT doubles storage needs)
