iAnywhere Launches Advantage Database Server 8.0

Features New Data Architect, Replication, Online Backup, and SQL Scripting

iAnywhere DatabaseiAnywhere has announced at the Borland Developers Conference that it is strengthening its database management portfolio with the release of Advantage Database Server 8.0.

Advantage Database Server is a full-featured, high performance client/server data management system targeted towards Borland Delphi and C++ Builder developers. The new features in Advantage Data Architect, Advantage Replication, Advantage Online Backup and SQL scripting will enhance Advantage Database Server 8.0 with ease-of-use, performance and efficiency.

The Advantage Database Server was recently acquired by Sybase through its purchase of Extended Systems in October 2005. The business has since been integrated into Sybase's iAnywhere subsidiary.

Advantage 8.0 provides developers with the functionality they require to easily build scalable business applications with low administration requirements. Major new features include a newly designed Advantage Data Architect, replication support, online backup functionality and the addition of SQL scripting. These enhancements provide developers with the most robust, best performing, and comprehensive version of Advantage Database Server to date.

"We established three main objectives for version 8.0 early in the design process: performance, easier usability and development, and the addition of key functionality that would make Advantage extremely competitive," said Chuck Vertrees, product manager for Advantage Database Server. "Early customer feedback indicates that we have accomplished all of our objectives."
