NEOPPOD project disclosed today an alpha releaseofthefirstOpenSourcetransactionalobjectdatabasedesignedfortheCloud. Based on Zope technology and innovative network algorithms created by Nexedi SA, NEOPPOD provides distributed, redundant and transactional storage designed for petabytesofpersistentobjects.ThankstothejointeffortsofengineersatNexediandPilot Systems, and to the researchers of Paris 6 University, Paris 13 University and MINESParisTech, the NEOPPOD project is now moving towards proven and reliable industrial applications, ranging from ERP5 Global Banking, Plone Enterprise Content Management,scalableegovernementandlargecontentarchives. ForYoshinori Okuji,PresidentofNexedi KKand creatoroftheNEOnetworkprotocol, "NEOisakeycomponentforfuturedevelopmentsofZopedatabasetechnologyonthe Cloud.Nexediisproudtodonate4yearsofcontinuousresearchtothecommunityandwill supportNEOinthecontextofthefastgrowingERP5marketrequirements".
