Key Features

Maintenance Free Operations

By providing maintenance-free operations, Pervasive PSQL guarantees that you will have the ability to focus on meeting your business requirements rather than spending time on reworking and downtime.

  • Avoid minor networking problems with Auto-Reconnect technology. This technology allows you to seamlessly reconnect workstations to the server engine when there is a network error.
  • Elimination of typical timewasting tracking tasks via archival and tracking logging.
  • The Pervasive System Analyser allows you to eliminate the deployment issues involved in component management.
  • Backwards compatibility to your own legacy databases and applications with support.
  • Eliminate the need to re-master your database environment when crossing platforms using dynamic parameters.
  • Independence of the Server/Requestor version radically streamlines your deployment.
  • Ensure that you have optimal performance without the need for manual involvement using:
    • Dynamic cache operations.
    • Index balancing.
    • Instantaneous files allocations.

Cross Platform Support

This enables development and deployment over multiple platforms. This includes 32-bit and 64 bit Windows and Linux, and also Netware. Pervasive PSQL provides the ability to write your application once, and then deploy it across multiple platforms. There is a common API for engine platforms. This provides your application a singular code base which, in turn, allows you to port without having to rewrite any code. You can move your database from one operating system to another, using the binary compatibility among different platforms.

  • Your vital data is always safe and available, thanks to the data safety and recovery features.
  • You can easily migrate from a workstation to workgroup client or server without the need to make changes to the application code.
  • Guarantees the integrity of your database through transaction durability.

Robust Developer Tools and Support
