"I have been a long time advocate of InterBase, having used NT, Novell, and SCO (The SCO Group, Lindon, UT, www.sco.com) A leading vendor of Unix operating systems for the x86 platform. SCO had also offered Linux, but abandoned the line in the spring of 2003. The SCO Group is the combination of two companies: Utah-based Caldera, Inc. versions since 3.0 Beta," said Loren French, chief technology officer, Colorado Mountain Express. "Without question, this version of InterBase provides the best stability and performance of any version of InterBase. We have been operating the Beta 2 version of 5.0 continuously for more than 25 days without a single problem and I'm very impressed!"
InterBase 5.0 features SuperServer across all supported platforms. This multi-client, multi-threaded architecture eliminates bottlenecks and reduces the overhead required for multiple process tasks. InterBase 5.0 includes InterClient, a true all-Java JDBC driver that allows for high-performance connectivity and easy deployment. This radically reduces deployment and life cycle costs to Java client/server developers.
