InterBase is 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 Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, Linux and Solaris. With InterBase you get powerful security, disaster recovery and journaling and support for popular database drivers for increased deployment flexibility.
Zero administration. 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.
New! IBLite embeddable database for iOS
IBLite is a freely deployable, embeddable database for 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 XE4 (Professional with Mobile and above) and RAD Studio XE4 (all editions). Upgrade from IBLite to InterBase ToGo edition for additional functionality including encryption, multi-core support and larger database file sizes.
More Security and Access Control
InterBase offers flexible encryption capabilities required to protect all your business-critical information. Encrypt the entire database or just a critical table or column. InterBase can encrypt data stored in the database, transmitted across networks and stored in database backups. InterBase XE3 supports the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and Data Encryption Standard (DES). With InterBase you get multi-user access and permissions and the ability to filter on only the information you want to see.
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 Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, Linux and Solaris, giving you incredible deployment flexibility. InterBase supports connectivity between versions of InterBase and across operating systems.
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.
