Btrieve 12 Highlights

  • NoSQL Transactional Data Access
    Btrieve 12 uses key-value store to store and access the data. Calls to the Btrieve engine are made programmatically with Btrieve API rather than through the use of a query language; delivering very high performance transaction processing
  • Current Windows OS Support
    Btrieve 12 supports all of the latests Windows operating systems including Windows 10, 8.1 and 7, Windows Server 2016, 2012, 2008 and more
  • Backwards Compatibility
    Btrieve 12 is file format and API compatible with Btrieve 6.15. Btrieve 6.15 applications can run with no changes on Btrieve 12. No need to recompile code or rebuild file formats (unless you are writing to 5.x files)
  • New Features
    Auto reconnect, Btrieve Control Center, improved concurrent file use, wire encryption, centralized logging, online help and documentation, and updated utilities are just a few of the new features in Btrieve 12.
  • Simplified Settings
    Btrieve 12 takes advantage of the increased capacity of modern operating systems and hardware by simplifying resource settings. Developers no longer need to micromanage the use of system resources
  • ISV Focused Licensing and Pricing
    The Btrieve 12 Limited Distribution License makes it simple for ISVs to embed Btrieve 12 in their applications. The per 1,000 user pricing is surprisingly affordable means that building an application around Btrieve 12 adds very little cost, leaving a lot of room for ISV profit.
