I am very pleased to announce this great, really great news! Last week on March 18, 2011, CUBRID RDBMS was chosen to power the Official Web Site of the 17th Asian Games which will be held in 2014 in Incheon, South Korea.
The event officials say: "Considering the total cost of ownership of existing foreign database management systems, we think it is better to adopt the Korean DBMS which provides many features. This is going to be an impressive wave of about 4 billion Asians who are expected to communicate through the event homepage."
The event will last 18 days, and at this moment the Organizers have already started the preparations. They are developing a comprehensive plan which will guarantee the success of the event. Besides the Official Web Site, the Organizing Committee is planning to heavily use Social Networking Services to promote the new media.
It is both very impressive and very challenging for CUBRID to be the database management system for world events. I hope one day CUBRID will be deployed as part of IT systems for even bigger events such as 2012 London Olympics.
