Versant Corporation (NASDAQ: VSNT) is an industry leader in specialized data management software, which helps companies to handle complex information in environments that have high performance and high availability requirements.
Using the Versant Object Database, customers cut hardware costs, speed and simplify development, significantly reduce administration costs, and deliver products with a strong competitive edge. With over 50,000 installations, Versant has been a highly reliable partner for over 15 years for Global 2000 companies such as Ericsson, Verizon, Sagem, U.S. Government, and Financial Times.
The Versant Object Database lets you develop using objects that need only contain the domain behaviour, freeing you from persistence concerns. And it does so at the same time it enables seamless data distribution across multiple databases, high concurrency, fine-grained locking, top performance, and high availability through replication and other techniques. Modern O/R mapping tools in Java simplify many mapping problems, however they donâ€™t provide seamless data distribution or the performance of Versant.
