: Tamino XML Server 4.1.1"> Executive Summary: Tamino XML Server 4.1.1
Tamino provides a flexible system for storing and searching XML-formatted data. Organizations that need to archive or query large numbers of XML documents will find XML Server 4.1.1 a capable option. Those planning to construct XML-enabled content management systems should investigate products that are oriented more toward indexing and searching non-XML-formatted data.
At $45,000 per CPU on all platforms, Tamino is on the high end of XML database pricing. (+) Supports XQuery, the standard XML query API; dynamic gateways to SQL databases available; API supports multiple languages and protocols; supports node-level changes for faster updates. (-) High cost; administrative features are scattered among several different programs; locking is done on a whole document level instead of at node level; text search features work only with data stored in XML format, not with common document formats.
