Open Simp-X is a powerful Internet platform for everyone, attempting to change programming for the Internet with sharing database information. It strives for scalablility, reliability, and ease of use. The platform consists of a client/server pair. Security is a top priority, and data transfers are encrypted. Open Simp-X achieves scalability through plugins. Plugins can collect information, manipulate it, and send it back to the database. Writing plugins is easy since they do not have to worry about how to send or receive their information, and can focus on manipulating it. Open Simp-X can be set up to retreive data through a LAN or through a Web server.
