OSEHRA is pleased to share with our community that Organizational Member YottaDB LLC has released YottaDB r1.10. This release adds support for GT.M, on which YottaDB is based, to run successfully on Advanced Reduced Instruction Set Computer (RISC) Machine processor chips, commonly known as ARM. ARM licenses both 32-bit and 64-bit RISC multi-core processors that are designed to operate at a high speeds, and are extensively used in consumer electronic devices such as smartphones, tablets, multimedia players, and other mobile devices including wearables.
This is a major achievement, as it broadens the devices which VistA, RPMS, and other EMRs can operate on. For example, VistA can now successfully run on Raspberry PIs (https://www.raspberrypi.org/), Chromebooks, and ARM based servers. It also opens the possibility for using parts of VistA and RPMS code base in Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
The code to make this possible was contributed by open source developer Steve Johnson. To download YottaDB for ARM, or other platforms, visit https://github.com/YottaDB/YottaDB/releases/tag/r1.10.
