InterBase 5.0 -- the Best InterBase Yet.
Upgraded version delivers business-critical readiness with the
strength of SuperServer Architecture and a Java JDBC driver.
InterBase Software Corporation today announced the availability of InterBase 5.0, the business-critical, embedded database. It combines the traditional strengths of InterBase -- ease of installation, use and maintenance -- with new SQL and server features that give InterBase true scalability, superior concurrency and improved productivity.
"The release of 5.0 establishes a new standard for InterBase as a company distinct from Borland International," said Jim Weil, president, InterBase Software Corporation. "It fulfills our commitment made in April to provide annual releases, making us much more timely at addressing the needs of the embedded database market."
Interbase 5.0 has already been implemented as the primary database of Colorado Mountain Express, an organization successfully running 40 users with over 100 connections to handle reservations and operations for its Vail, Aspen and other ski area transportation systems.
"I have been a long time advocate of InterBase, having used NT, Novell, and SCO 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.
