Borland upgrades embedded database

Borland Software on Tuesday introduced InterBase 7.1, a cross-platform embeddable database that adds support for Windows Server 2003.

The announcement demonstrates the company's commitment to the Microsoft .Net Framework, Borland said.

The database is used primarily by ISVs and value-added resellers, according to Borland. "This is a database that you would build into an application that you're going to distribute," said Brad Asmus,CQ senior product marketing manager for the database business unit at Borland.

Available now, version 7.1 provides automatic crash recovery and is suited for embedding within distributed applications, the company said. The new product features easy installation and maintenance, the company said.

Enhancements to the InterBase Console Performance Monitor help developers and administrators better understand the database server process, according to the company. Managers have better visibility into usage and performance, including login information and activities, and control of database processes. InterBase supports the Windows, Linux and Solaris platforms. It also offers multiprocessor support.

The product's list pricing is US$60 per desktop user or $200 per server. An unlimited server license also is available for $3,999.
