LOBSTER is becoming an independent company! | 25th Oct 15
After two years of testing LOBSTER supported by Humboldt-Innovation GmbH, the incubator of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, we, the developers and creators of LOBSTER, founded our own company to develop & distribute LOBSTER further.
Our company’s name frischedaten UG (haftungsbeschränkt) roughly translates to fresh and recent data, and verbalizes what we strive for.
If you are already a customer, you received an email legally informing you of the transition of your current contract from Humboldt-Innovation to frischedaten UG. Your terms remain unchanged, but you will need to shortly confirm to that transition so that you can access LOBSTER after the 14th of November.
Our new customers will be able to conclude a contract directly with frischedaten UG from now on. We will update the relevant pages for the onboarding process shortly, in the meantime just contact us for all questions regarding enrolment.
Updated queueing system. | 25th Oct 15
As our customer base increases, so are the usage patterns of our users. We saw an increase in very big data queries the last weeks, which our queuing system handled efficiently but not very fair-minded with respect to users that wanted to see their small queries fulfilled in a reasonable time frame. To accommodate all of our users, we had to tweak the queuing system of LOBSTER.
From now on we have a fixed amount of threads (currently three) that run in parallel associated with each user. Of course you can still enter all your queries at once, and three of them will always start immediately while all others get queued until the first one finishes.
added new papers. | 28th Sep 15
