McObject signs G-Tek as distributor in Turkey

September 29, 2008 - McObject announced a partnership in which G-Tek, a software distributor and engineering firm based in Ankara, Turkey, will resell and provide integration services for McObject’s eXtremeDB real-time embedded database system and Perst open source, object-oriented embedded database system in Turkey’s fast-growing technology marketplace.

Embedded systems development is thriving in Turkey, thanks to a growing economy and targeted government investment to foster a domestic defense industry. G-Tek was founded in 2006, to capitalize on Turkey’s embedded opportunity.

Already, G-Tek’s customer list includes many of Turkey’s biggest names in defense and aerospace—and these firms’ projects can benefit from McObject’s proven, real-time embedded database technology, G-Tek Co-founder and Real Time Products Manager Ali Özdemir said

“eXtremeDB offers fast and predictable performance, reliability, sophisticated development tools, and fault-tolerance through its High Availability edition. McObject’s technology brings together the most powerful combination of features for embedded systems applications. A proven database system with these characteristics is needed in a wide range of military and aerospace applications, as well as in non-military technology,” Özdemir said.

“McObject’s successful track record in military and aerospace systems, with customers including such global names as Boeing, Lockheed Martin, EADS, and Turkey’s own STM A.S. and Aselsan A.S., builds on eXtremeDB’s technical strengths and will accelerate its adoption here,” he said.

G-Tek already provides tools and training services from McObject technology partners, including Telelogic’s Rhapsody model-driven development tool and Green Hills Software’s INTEGRITY real-time operating system (RTOS), as well as LDRA Software Technology’s analysis and testing tools. G-Tek’s consulting services include product training, design and application development.

“In working with G-Tek, it’s clear they offer exactly what McObject seeks in an international distributor: business acumen—as evidenced by the firm’s growth to-date—plus first rate technical skills and in-depth knowledge of Turkey’s embedded development market. We look forward to working closely with G-Tek in Turkey,” said Chris Mureen, McObject chief operating officer.
