BURLINGAME, Calif. -- ANTs software inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: ANTS) , a developer of universally compatible, high- performance SQL database management systems, today announced the expansion of its Technical Advisory Board, with the appointment of two expert database technologists. J. Barry Thompson, CTO of Tervela, Inc. and a technologist with extensive experience in the capital markets sector, and Curt Miller, CTO of Wireless Services Corporation and the architect of a wireless telephony messaging system used by large carriers such as Sprint-Nextel, will join Don Haderle, Founding Member of the ANTs Technical Advisory Board.

"We welcome these distinguished technology executives to our Technical Advisory Board," said Boyd Pearce, CEO of ANTs Software. "These IT visionaries bring a wealth of experience and unique perspectives that will be enormously valuable in helping define ANTs' future product strategy and direction. I look forward to working with them as ANTs moves forward to strengthen its presence in the marketplace."

For the past ten years, Barry Thompson has spliced cutting-edge technology with turnaround/change management and investment strategies to make some of the largest firms in the financial services industry run faster. Mr. Thompson is a self-taught technologist who left the banking world to incubate startup projects, two of which came to market in 2003. Prior to his current role as CTO of Tervela, Inc., which develops high-performance messaging products, Mr. Thompson was head of North American Architecture for UBS Warburg, a post he took over in 2000 when UBS acquired PaineWebber.

Previously, Mr. Thompson overhauled New York- and London-based systems for NatWest Global Financial Markets, and designed trading systems for AIG Trading Group. Mr. Thompson has developed software for MCI Telecommunications, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission and other government agencies.

"The high-paced, non-stop world of international finance is a perfect environment for the kind of technology ANTs is offering, and I look forward to sharing my insights with ANTs management to help them establish a beachhead in this and other industries," said Barry Thompson. "High concurrency and high performance are essentials, and ANTs' cost advantage coupled with its ability to ease migration from more established databases should go a long way towards attracting interest on several fronts."
