Our history

Mimer evolves from a research project at Uppsala University. Our enterprise SQL database was early a great success and has been deployed in numerous companies in different lines of business all over the world.

We soon realized that the rapid growth of the market of small and powerful embedded and handheld devices would require more sophisticated data management capabilities. Our initial design principles such as compact code base, zero maintenance, no degeneration, rich functionality and flexible adaptation were extremely suitable for various types of embedded devices. Today our product has been deployed in more than 100 million mobile phones and a large amount of other embedded devices.

We have gained a widespread acceptance of our product and our design ideas. As requirements for functionality and performance will increase for even smaller devices you will find Mimer databases embedded in products that one didn’t think was possible just a few years ago.

Our vision and mission

In Nordic mythology, the giant Mimer was the symbol of divine wisdom. He was always next to the king of gods Odin. Visitors came from lands far away to get answers from the Well of Wisdom – the powerful instrument that Mimer had in his possession. Just like this well, we would like to see ourselves as a team blessed with a deep wisdom that have been gathered through our journey as a company. We have been on the market for over two decades and have provided companies with cutting edge databases – From mobile devices to automotive plants.

Our vision is to be the most flexible database on the planet.

Our mission is to be the innovative and smart SQL database company that continuously leads the development to new areas and businesses. No matter what the device or solution it might be, Mimer will fit perfectly and show flawless performance – Safe and secure.
