From InterBase
Jump to: navigation, search

InterBase is a full-featured, high performance and scalable relational database for software developers. It is a low cost, zero administration, lightweight, multi-device database that can be embedded into applications on Android, iOS, Windows, OS X, Linux, and Solaris. InterBase has powerful security, disaster recovery, and journaling and support for popular database drivers for increased deployment flexibility.

Zero Administration with a Tiny Footprint

InterBase is ideal for ISVs, OEMs and VARs requiring a database that is compact in memory and disk size but without compromising sophisticated features to support business-critical applications. Unlike many databases that require expensive support and maintenance, InterBase requires no administration. Simple installation and tiny footprint make InterBase an incredible database to embed in your applications.

IBLite Embeddable Database for Android and iOS

IBLite is a freely deployable, embeddable database for Android and iOS that runs in a stand-alone environment and allows deployment of apps which directly utilize the InterBase engine. IBLite is available exclusively with Delphi XE7 (Professional with Mobile and above) and RAD Studio XE7 (all editions). Upgrade from IBLite to InterBase ToGo edition for additional functionality including encryption, multi-core support and larger database file sizes.

Embed Once - Deploy Everywhere

Embed InterBase with your application and as you move your application across platforms, InterBase will move with you. InterBase is available for Android, iOS, Windows, OS X, Linux and Solaris, giving you incredible deployment flexibility. InterBase supports connectivity between versions of InterBase and across operating systems.

Ultra-fast Performance

InterBase is one of the fastest native databases available. Using its built in symmetric multiprocessing (SMP), InterBase can take advantage of today's multi-core CPUs and multi-CPU systems. Performance enhancements and optimizations have been added in a number of areas, such as restoring databases, batch updates, and queries. InterBase uses a multi-generational architecture providing unique versioning capabilities that result in high data availability for transaction processing and decision support – simultaneously.

Close Integration with Best-of-breed Application Development Tools

InterBase supports all major development paradigms including Java, C, C++, .NET, Delphi, PHP and Ruby. It integrates closely to C++Builder, RAD Studio, and Delphi so that when you deploy your RAD projects to any platform, InterBase will automatically deploy with it. If you're a Visual Studio developer you can work with InterBase via the ADO. NET or ODBC connectors for easy access to your data.

Put Your Database on the Cloud or Keep it Local

Take advantage of the power of Cloud and deploy InterBase in a cloud computing environment so that your application can obtain instant access to resources. Or keep it local for higher security and higher performance.
