Are you looking for a fast and lightweight database engine?Do you want to keep your data secure? Is business continuity important to you? Do you need to create apps that run on multiple platforms? InterBase offers, in all editions, a full-featured, high performance and scalable relational database for software developers who are looking to embed a low cost, zero-admin, lightweight database into applications on Android, iOS, Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and Solaris. With InterBase you get powerful security, disaster recovery via journaling and support for popular database drivers for increased deployment flexibility.
Zero administration. Tiny footprint
If business continuity and cost matter to you then it's probably worth knowing why so many ISV's, OEM's and VAR trust InterBase to power their business critical software. Built from the ground up to be sturdy and resistant to data corruptions, InterBase is powered by a multi-generational transaction architecture that in short, help make InterBase a zero-admin database. Not requiring a full time DBA can help save a small fortune! Simple installation and tiny footprint make InterBase an incredible database to embed in your applications. In addition, InterBase's journaling features help make disaster recovery worries a thing of the past, allowing you to Embed, Deploy and Relax!
Data security is a hot topic! The loss of data via cyber attacks can lead to loss of customers, reputation, lead to regulatory action and even expose you to large fines. InterBase is here to help with its flexible on-disk and over the wire encryption capabilities. InterBase also benefits from inbuilt user authentication and security in place wherever your data files reside. Choose to encrypt the entire database or just a critical table or column, and define who can decode that data with powerful role based authentication. InterBase supports both Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and Data Encryption Standard (DES) encryption.
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, Mac OS X, Linux and Solaris, giving you incredible deployment flexibility. InterBase supports connectivity between versions of InterBase and across operating systems. Along with embedded user authentication and data encryption, InterBase reduces the risks of data leaks from developer / user error allowing you to write once and test secure access to data for all platforms.
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, Delphi and Appmethod so that when you deploy your 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.
