From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

     An Object-Oriented Database from AT&T which extends C++
     and supports fast queries, complex application modelling and
     Ode uses one integrated data model ({C++ classes) for both
     database and general purpose manipulation.  An Ode database is
     a collection of persistent objects.  It is defined,
     queried and manipulated using the language O++.  O++
     programs can be compiled with C++ programs, thus allowing the
     use of existing C++ code.  O++ provides facilities for
     specifying transactions, creating and manipulating persistent
     objects, querying the database and creating and manipulating
     The Ode object database provides four object compatible
     mechanisms for manipulating and querying the database.  As
     well as O++ there are OdeView - an X Window System
     interface; OdeFS (a file system interface allowing objects to
     be treated and manipulated like normal Unix files); and CQL++,
     a C++ variant of SQL for easing the transition from
     relational databases to OODBs such as Ode.
     Ode supports large objects (critical for multimedia
     applications).  Ode tracks the relationship between versions
     of objects and provides facilities for accessing different
     versions.  Transactions can be specified as read-only; such
     transactions are faster because they are not logged and they
     are less likely to deadlock.  'Hypothetical' transactions
     allow users to pose "what-if" scenarios (as with
     EOS, the storage engine of Ode, is based on a client-server
     architecture.  EOS supports concurrency based on
     multi-granularity two-version two-phase locking; it allows
     many readers and one writer to access the same item
     simultaneously.  Standard two-phase locking is also available.
     Ode supports both a client-server mode for multiple users
     with concurrent access and a single user mode giving improved
     Ode 3.0 is currently being used as the multimedia database
     engine for AT&T's Interactive TV project.  Ode 2.0 has
     also been distributed to more than 80 sites within AT&T and
     more than 340 universities.  Ode is available free to
     universities under a non-disclosure agreement.  The current
     version, 3.0, is available only for Sun SPARCstations
     running SunOS 4.1.3 and Solaris 2.3.  Ode is being ported
     to Microsoft Windows NT, Windows 95 and SGI
