db4objects Demos Car Navigation System with NAND Drive at JavaOne

SAN MATEO, Calif., May 8, 2007 - db4objects (, the creator of the leading open source object database for the Java platform, helped solve a leading Japanese car manufacturer's hard drive problem by eliminating it.

db4objects will demonstrate at SUN's Java Playground at booth #1336 a navigation system that is powered by db4o and a NAND drive. The demo shows how db4o maximizes database performance and optimizes NAND life. The db4o/NAND navigation system runs up to 10x faster than a navigation system with a traditional hard drive.

"With db4o there is no paging and the database uses very small slots where possible so it runs extremely fast on NAND,” commented Carl Rosenberger, Chief Software Architect at db4objects. “That translates into a much finer granularity of how data is written to the drive which is not only much more efficient but also ideally suited for NAND drives."

See the interactive demo at SUN’s Java Playground at the JavaOne Pavilion, Booth #1336, and learn more about the leading open source object database for Java.
