Director Product Management - Berkeley DB

 Berkeley DB originated at the University of California, 
 Berkeley as part of the transition (1986 to 1994) from 4.3BSD 
 to 4.4BSD and of the effort to remove AT&T-encumbered code.
 It has evolved a great deal since then and is now part
 of Oracle where it is distributed with source code under 
 a dual use license.

 Berkeley DB (BDB) is a computer software library that provides 
 a high-performance embedded database, with bindings in C, C++, 
 PHP, Java, Perl, Python, Ruby, Tcl, Smalltalk, and other languages. 
 BDB stores arbitrary key/data pairs as byte arrays, and supports 
 multiple data items for a single key. BDB can support thousands 
 of simultaneous threads of control or concurrent processes 
 manipulating databases as large as 256 terabytes, on a wide 
 variety of operating systems including most Unix-like and 
 Windows systems, and real-time operating systems.
