Embarcadero’s New InterBase XE Offers Advanced Security and Scalability with Near-Zero Administration

Relational database management system ideal for both embedded and SMB applications.

SAN FRANCISCO – Sept. 21, 2010 — Embarcadero Technologies, a leading provider of multi-platform database tools and developer software, today announced InterBase® XE, a full-featured, relational database management system (RDBMS). InterBase XE is designed for developers to create resilient business-critical applications for embedding in devices, appliances and small enterprise, desktop and workgroup solutions.

InterBase XE combines a multi-version architecture with simple installation, minimal administration and deployment overhead, automatic crash recovery and a self-tuning engine. The new XE edition can now handle eight times more data and offers more security options, such as longer passwords and SHA-1 encryption which are critical for enhancing payment account security. 

Features such as a lightweight footprint and near-zero administration make InterBase ideal for embedded applications. It supports rapid application development environments and provides transaction processing speed and reliability features typically only found in much more expensive RDBMS systems. InterBase has already been proven in thousands of embedded applications such as retail point-of-sale systems and CRM solutions.

Additional new features now available with InterBase XE include:

  • Cloud Deployment - Cloud deployment of InterBase XE allows developers to rapidly provision systems and expand and contract capacity as business demands
  • Improved Productivity - Improves developer productivity by allowing Dynamic SQL to be called from Stored Procedures and Triggers
  • Handles More Data - InterBase XE’s 64-bit architecture can address more memory and handle larger tables for improved scalability
  • Enhanced Support – InterBase XE includes support for JDBC BLOB/CLOB

A developer or administrator can deploy InterBase XE in less than an hour and businesses can run critical applications knowing they are secure, reliable and scalable. InterBase XE can be deployed on a wide variety of platforms including Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and now, the Amazon Cloud.
