PSQL v11

New Features

Optimized for Multi-core: PSQL v11 is a parallel implementation of PSQL that includes several enhancements for multi-core:

  • Improvements to low level synchronization mechanisms in the transactional interface
  • Multiple users can read the same cached file pages simultaneously and their operations can proceed on multiple cores
  • Multiple users accessing independent files can proceed on different cores
  • Non-user activity such as checkpoint and log management can use additional cores

Full 64-bit: PSQL v11 supports the Btrieve and ODBC interfaces on native 64-bit Windows and Linux operating systems with 64-bit architecture

Backup Agent and VSS Support: PSQL v11 offers two choices for managing backups. A Backup Agent license is included with each PSQL v11 Server license and PSQL v11 Server for Windows includes support for Microsoft’s Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS).

  • Better backup with Actian Backup Agent and VSS support
  • Simple transition to IPv6

What we mean by Zero DBA

Set it and forget it. Most small and midsized businesses don’t have a DBA. Or an IT department. Actian PSQL is built specifically for environments where users don’t have the resources or the inclination to manage a database. Actian PSQL installations are simple, quick and can be completely hidden from the end user. We don’t require consultants and don’t need constant DBA supervision. Actian PSQL just runs, and runs, and runs.

Thinking About Cloud, SaaS or VM’s? You Need PSQL Vx.

If your database application is running on a VM and needs to take advantage of features like live migration, high availability and failover, or if you application is running on a VM as part of a public, private or hybrid cloud, Actian PSQL Vx Server is the right choice.

  • Hypervisor Friendly – Works with VMware, Microsoft, and Citrix hypervisors
  • Live Migration, Failover and High Availability Support – When a hypervisor is alerted to a potential failure of a physical machine, it automatically moves the VM to another server. Actian PSQL Vx Server has licensing features to make a hypervisor initiated VM move seamless.
  • Cloud-friendly licensing – No additional charge for hosting, no user counts, no processor counts.
  • Application Compatibility – No changes required for existing PSQL applications
