When designing solutions for mass distribution, reducing the cost of every component is crucial for success. We recognize this and can offer you an extremely flexible licensing model for Mimer SQL when you use it in your volume products.

Database component with full standard support

Mimer SQL Embedded supports the ISO/ANSI 1999 SQL standard to 100%. This includes support for stored procedures, triggers, views and domains. Together with the support for standard APIs like ODBC, JDBC and ADO.NET this will give the application programmer a unique interoperability and connectivity to other tools and IDEs.

Zero maintenance

Mimer SQL Embedded is a completely maintenance free database server. The Mimer SQL Embedded database kernel is used in mission-critical systems all over the world, which verifies the robustness and high quality of the product. There is no need to run any utilities or other maintenance tools to for example rebuild the database storage structures to reclaim performance or storage. The non-locking concurrency control system totally avoids any unexpected application failures due to database locks. In an environment where the system must work standalone for extended periods of time, Mimer SQL Embedded is the perfect solution.

Small footprint

The enterprise version of Mimer SQL has a footprint of only a few MBytes. The footprint of a tailor-made version of Mimer SQL Embedded can be reduced to 300 KB or even less, still with support for full SQL and concurrent database access.

Concurrent database access

Mimer SQL Embedded implements a client/server architecture with full concurrency and ACID transactional support. This makes it possible for different applications to simultaneously read and update the database under control of the Mimer SQL database manager.

Data security and consistency

The client/server architecture and a fine-grained access control system in Mimer SQL Embedded together with a rich set of data types with strong typing constraints protect the data in the database from any unintentional or malicious corruption.

Shorter time to market

By storing all data in a Mimer SQL Embedded database it is possible to share data between applications (even with concurrent access) while preserving full data consistency. With the full support for ISO/ANSI SQL and other important database standards the development time for database applications is reduced significantly.
