Cupertino,CA (PRWEB) March 14, 2015

An old Italian proverb advises people to “mangiare per vivere e non vivere per mangiare” — which translates as “eat to live and not live to eat”. And while this is indeed wise counsel, the folks who came up with this recommendation would surely make an exception for those who download the brilliant new iPhone and iPad app Italian Yummy: Every day a new recipe.

Available at no-cost and developed by Mattia Confalonieri, Italian Yummy delivers users a new, authentic Italian recipe each day covering every taste and preference imaginable:from classic cuisine to modern creations. Each recipe is accompanied by:

The full, formal name of the dish (e.g. “Schiacciata” or “Passata di pomodoro”)
Beautiful, artistic HD photos
A brief description of the dish
The number of courses
The degree of difficulty
Calories per serving (Kcal)
A list of ingredients
Simple step-by-step preparation instructions
Preparation time

Also, each recipe is featured with icons that highlight the dish’s various dietary aspects, such as whether it is: spicy, suitable for vegetarians, contains lactose, or contains gluten.There’s even a thoughtful icon to let users know if preparing a disk is going to be on “Budget Friendly” (i.e. not expensive to prepare).

At the same time, users can search Italian Yummy’s vast recipe database to find thousands of meal ideas and possibilities. Searches can be made via keywords or ingredients, and filtered by everything from dietary aspects, calorie level, whether cooking is required, degree of difficulty, cooking duration, cost level, ingredients remaining in the pantry, and there’s even a brilliant “Chromo Recipes” feature to find dishes based on their principal color. What’s more, all searches can be conducted offline, which is not just convenient, but reduces bandwidth usage.

FairCom Makes Its Debut In Gartners Magic Quadrant for Operational Database Management Systems

COLUMBIA, MO. (PRWEB UK) 11 November 2014

FairCom, a worldwide leader in high-performance, engineering-level database technology, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Magic Quadrant for Operational Database Management Systems (DBMS). (1). The report evaluated 25 vendors for inclusion in the Quadrant.

The annual Gartner Magic Quadrant report evaluates vendors within the market, offering in-depth analyses of strengths and cautions for each. According to Gartner, “The operational DBMS market continues to grow, with innovative products and features being delivered by both new and traditional vendors.” (2).

Although this is its first appearance in the Quadrant, FairCom is one of these traditional vendors. “As the most mature NoSQL DBMSs on the market, we have a long history of stability and innovation,” said Randal Hoff, VP of Engineering Services, FairCom. “We consider our positioning in the Operational DMBS Quadrant a reflection of our ability to provide the highest customer support, professional services and performance to our customers. We look forward to continuing our growth as a company and further enhancing our market position in the future.”

Franco Violi, CTO at Lapam Federimpresa, was not surprised by the news. “I see FairCom’s inclusion in the Quadrant to be a reflection of what we at my company have known for years. For more than 10 years we have relied on FairCom because of its strong technology and performance, as well as the exceptional customer service to match.”

The Magic Quadrant report also predicts that, “By 2017 all leading operational DBMSs will offer multiple data models, relational and NoSQL, in a single platform.” (3). Continuously delivering power to developers, already today FairCom’s customers do not have to make the choice between NoSQL and SQL. c-treeACE is a fully ACID, key-value store with both NoSQL interfaces and SQL, supporting transactions with an embedded or stand-alone engine. Cross-platform support (Unix/Linux/OS X/Windows), scalability and strong HA stand out among its capabilities.

According to Chris Hellewell VP of Product Development at Spillman Technologies, “The performance and reliability of the FairCom database were key factors in the decision to use it in our software solutions. Many applications in the public safety market, including computer-aided dispatch for emergency communications centers, require quick performance for real-time operations. With FairCom, we are able to meet these expectations while passing along the benefits of a zero-maintenance database to our customers.”
