Pervasive SQL (PSQL) Unlimited User v13.20
Actian Zen database family is the most reliable, small-footprint, low-maintenance, high-performance database management system (DBMS) in the world, purpose-built for Edge data management – whether in the Cloud, remote and branch offices or in Mobile and IoT settings. Actian Zen combines NoSQL programmatic API-based access and SQL relational access for the perfect blend of performance and standard access from most popular operating environments and underlying Intel and ARM platforms. Zero-DBA design and fantastic backward compatibility (prior versions of PSQL) mean that ISVs support costs are dramatically reduced.
Zero-maintenance, Embedded, Nano-footprint
Actian Zen database is the best-in-class single, secure, scalable architecture for Edge Data Management. It’s the perfect solution for software developers who want dedicated application data management and deliver business-critical products and services into OT and low IT environments.
Enterprise-class features and security
Cost-effective Actian Zen offers full security, encryption, management and monitoring tools, plus a host of other features you would expect to see in a much more expensive DBMS product.
Stability and Reliability
There’s no doubt why Independent Software Vendors embed or bundle Actian Zen Enterprise Server database for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS in their mission critical applications. Actian Zen’s reputation is based on rock solid reliability.
Zero-ETL Data Portability
Actian Zen shares a common data type and file format across all Zen database products, so accessing and moving data between an ARM device (e.g. a Raspberry Pi) and Windows or Linux servers requires none of the typical ETL overhead. Just copy files and go.
If your application is running on a VM as part of a Cloud or your application is deployed in a way that you don’t want to count or can’t count users, Actian Zen Cloud Server has the right data management features, functionality, and license model for you.
Innovation yet Backwards Compatibility
Actian has an over 30-year history of innovation while still providing reliable backward compatibility with PSQL or anything written to be 100% SQL compliant, making moves to new versions a snap.
Zero Database Administration
Set it and forget it. Most ISVs and Enterprise software deployed to branch, field or small business environments don’t want end-users to know there’s a database let alone have or want a DBA. Actian Zen is built for environments where users don’t have the resources to manage a database. Zen runs without end-user interaction, notice, or DBA supervision.
Multi-platform Support without Application Code Changes
Actian Zen enables ISVs to take advantage of new hardware architecture, OS platforms, and computing environments (e.g. 64-bit, Mobile, IoT, Cloud) without application changes. If your customer base numbers in the thousands, the Zen database family enables you to move to new platforms without code modifications.
Cloud Migration, Pooling, and HA
Actian Zen Cloud Server provides live migration capability for prior PSQL instances and takes full advantage of hypervisor capabilities in VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Citrix XenServer environments for failover, high availability, paravirtualization, resource scheduling and disaster recovery.
Database files can be defragmented without any engine down time. Reads and writes can operate continuously during defragmentation. Improve application performance without taking Actian Zen databases offline.
Expanded multilingual support by providing SQL storage for wide-character data. Actian Zen provides access to Btrieve data in the form of new relational types NCHAR, NVARCHAR and NLONGVARCHAR and includes a new ODBC Unicode Interface driver.
Actian Zen includes several different SDKs to allow developers direct access to the data without going though a relational layer directly from C/C++, Java, C#, PHP, perl, and Python. This enables very fast access and very quick insert, update and delete performance as code executing within the application.
Actian Zen provides both NoSQL and SQL access to a single set of data. For ISVs adding more flexible reporting features, direct access via ODBC, JDBC, and support for ADO.NET and Embarcadero developers means ISVs have a wide range of choices for SQL access.
Many ISVs building applications for small business users, remote field environments, or to the Internet of Things want to hide the complexity of a database from their users. An Actian Zen installation can be hidden in the ISV application (silent install), and the developer can cherry-pick the components needed to eliminate unneeded features or keep footprint to a minimum.
