MISSION HILLS, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/09/14 -- UNICOM Systems, Inc., a Division of UNICOM Global, today announced that it has acquired the solidDB® In-memory relational database management system from International Business Machines Corp. (IBM). The acquisition includes both the solidDB software and the solidDB Universal Cache feature. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
As an IBM Premier Partner, IBM Reseller and ISV, UNICOM Global has been a trusted IBM partner for over 30 years, working closely with IBM to support and address customers' technology needs.
UNICOM Global's founder, president and CEO, Mr. Corry Hong, remarked that this latest acquisition, the 2nd in the last 6 months between the companies, builds upon UNICOM Global's 33-year business partner relationship with IBM, one of the world's leading IT companies. The current transaction follows the successful acquisition and transition of a worldwide customer base and technology from the December 31, 2013 acquisition of the Cognos Application Development Tools suite from IBM.
"We appreciate IBM's confidence in our ability to effectuate such a complex global transaction, and will once again collaborate with IBM to ensure a smooth transition for our customers," said Mr. Hong. "solidDB has over 3 million deployments in telecommunications networks, enterprise applications and embedded software and systems, and UNICOM will focus on extending these customer investments through enhanced support and development efforts."
As part of the transaction, UNICOM will open a new R&D lab in Helsinki, Finland, where the core development team for solidDB will continue to work, joining UNICOM as its newest employees. Additionally, UNICOM has executed a Transition Services Agreement with IBM whereby certain transition services will be provided by IBM to and on behalf of UNICOM to allow for a smooth and seamless transition for all of the solidDB customers worldwide.
The solidDB In-memory database powers mission-critical applications for such companies including Cisco, HP, Alcatel and Nokia Siemens. The solidDB Universal Cache feature delivers the industry's first relational, in-memory caching software that accelerates IBM DB2® and Informix®, Oracle, Microsoft® SQL Server, and Sybase performance up to 10 times.
The acquisition of the solidDB solutions from IBM expands and builds on UNICOM's strategic IT capabilities and offerings which will benefit UNICOM customers, technology partners and supply-chain partners. UNICOM continues to grow through sustained leadership, extensive capital resources, and its global presence thereby strengthening existing relationships with Fortune 500 and Global 2000 commercial customers, as well as with OEM, Support Providing Partners, other strategic partners, the U.S. Federal Government, State, Local and Municipal government entities, and with key healthcare providers.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of So...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
