Actian PSQL is the perfect solution for packaged business applications. It is one of the most reliable, low maintenance, high-performance database management systems in the world. Actian PSQL v12 offers important new features: Online Defragmentation, VM live migration support for all editions, improved Unicode support and an updated PSQL installer. The three editions of PSQL meet a wide range of business needs: PSQL Workgroup (1-5 users), PSQL Server (6-500 users) or PSQL Vx (unlimited users, licensed for SaaS).
Defragmentation: PSQL v12 database files can be defragmented without any engine down time. Reads and writes can operate continuously during defragmentation.
Enhanced VM Licensing: VM live migration capabilities have now been expanded to PSQL v12 Server and Workgroup editions. A virtual machine with PSQL v12 Server or PSQL v12 Workgroup can be migrated without invalidating the PSQL v12 license.
PSQL Unicode Support: PSQL v12 expands its multilingual support by providing SQL storage for wide-character data. PSQL v12 provides access to Btrieve data in the form of new relational types NCHAR, NVARCHAR and NLONGVARCHAR and include a new ODBC Unicode Interface driver.
Simplified PSQL Licensing: The PSQL Vx Server 12 edition no longer requires Internet connectivity for operational use, once the product is authorized.
Installer Update: The PSQL v12 installation package will detect the OS bitness and automatically determine the bitness of the PSQL components that need to be installed.
Large Database Features at an Affordable Price: Cost-effective PSQL offers full security, encryption, management and monitoring tools, plus a host of other features you would expect to see in much more expensive DBMS products.
Stability and Reliability: There’s no doubt why the Windows desktop accounting market uses PSQL as the database of choice. PSQL’s solid reputation is based on rock solid reliability.
Backwards Compatibility: Actian has over a 30-year history of delivering reliable database upgrades. PSQL delivers years of backward compatibility making moves to new versions a snap.
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.
If your application is running on a VM as part of a public, private or hybrid cloud, or if your application is deployed in a way that you don’t want to count or can’t count users, Actian PSQL Vx Server is the right choice.
