Barrodale Computing Services Ltd. (BCS) has been providing effective and efficient software solutions for technologists and database users since 1978. Based on this extensive applications experience, we have now developed several database extension products. The Grid DataBlade supports database storage, update, and fast retrieval of multidimensional gridded data. DBXten is a database accelerator for ingestion and indexing of very large sequences of data, while reducing storage space requirements. Universal File Interface (UFI) makes large files look like sets of database tables, so users can perform SQL queries without ever having to load those files into a database.

The BCS President, Dr. Ian Barrodale, was formerly a Professor of Mathematics and Founding Chair of the Computer Science Department at the University of Victoria in Canada, and BCS staff have many years of experience in software development and data management.
