Change Views from InterBase introduce a new paradigm to the common question software architects have; How to manage changes between databases and devices? Today's software (data) landscape is commonly dominated from the need to have the business data, or subsets of, on multiple servers and devices – and this is where Change Views brand new approach makes drastic simplifications across the product development lifecycle. Change Views answers the objections and worries a data architect has around identifying and tracking changes. Rather than using timestamp fields or triggers, InterBase's patented subscription approach based on top of its multigenerational architecture delivers:
Field level change tracking
Scalable tracking with near zero performance impact, regardless of the number of users
Full visibility of changes that have happened concurrently
Inbuilt avoidance of notification of your own changes
In summary – Change Views allows you to easily:
View and query via SQL what has changed
Keep in control of data cost by moving only the data you need to move
Keep you caches up to date in the fastest time possible by moving the smallest dataset possible
Avoid complicated system configuration with redundant fields
When using Change views, new faster support for backup is provided via Incremental Data Dumps.
Zero administration. Tiny footprint
If business continuity and cost matter to you then it's probably worth knowing why so many ISVs, OEMs and VARs trust InterBase to power their business critical software. Built from the ground up to be sturdy and resistant to data corruption, InterBase is powered by a multi-generational transaction architecture that in short, helps 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 and 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.
InterBase will save you money at every stage of development, both at design time and run time!
When it comes to InterBase, it's all about the total cost of ownership. Reduce testing overhead and get to market faster by leverage built-in encryption user/role based data visibility capabilities, journaling, and disaster recovery. All in a zero administration database saving you expensive data administrator costs year over year; all of which is backed up with world wide support.
With InterBase, you can rely on over a decade of SMP experience to super charge your applications with one of the fastest native databases available. InterBase leverages today's multi-core CPUs and multi-CPU systems, along with a unique versioning approach, to retrieve and update your data blazingly fast.
NEW IN XE7 - Incremental Data Dumps provide a rapid way to regularly backup even the largest databases for that extra level of resilience.
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 the 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.
