REAL SQL Server 2007 ships

REAL Software on Tuesday announced that it is shipping REAL SQL Server 2007, a new version of its cross-platform multi-user database server for use with its REALbasic development environment. A developer version is available at no cost; REAL SQL Server costs from $500 to $9,000 to deploy depending on how many servers are being deployed.

REAL SQL Server enables REALbasic applications to tap into a database environment. It’s designed to work with applications built using REALbasic 2006 and later. The free developer version enables developers to create database-aware applications without having to purchase a license until the application is actually deployed to end users. The software runs on Mac OS X, Linux and Windows operating systems.

REAL SQL Server is now a Universal binary application that runs natively on Intel and PowerPC-based Macs. Also new in this release is support for AES256 encryption on the database file. REAL SQL Server now offers ODBC, PHP and C clients, allowing developers to access REAL SQL Server from other database tools and interfaces. REAL SQL Server 2007 also adds multi-core support for greater scalability for large databases.
