Mimer SQL for Apple's Mac OS X Rolls Out

3/3/2005 - Mimer Information Technology, a leading developer of enterprise and mobile database servers, announces the immediate availability of Mimer SQL for Mac OS X. This makes it possible also for Mac users to take full advantage of Mimer SQL’s high performance and zero maintenance. A free development and evaluation version of Mimer SQL for Mac OS X is available for download from Mimer’s web site (developer.mimer.com/macosx).

Mimer SQL has a long and successful track record both in large mission critical systems and as an embedded black box DBMS in many software products. This combination of high performance and ease-of-use makes Mimer SQL very well suited for the Mac OS X environment, matching Apple’s own philosophy of simplicity and user friendliness. Mimer SQL supports both Mac OS X and Mac OS X Server.

“With Apple’s commitment to the enterprise market, with increasing server sales, it is certainly a good time to bring the zero maintenance, high performance and scalable Mimer SQL database to the Mac”, said Stefan Eck, Product Manager of Mimer Information Technology. “We are looking forward to reach new groups of users. This includes both end users with mission critical systems and independent software vendors that provides high volume products for the Mac OS X.”

Mimer SQL’s “Install & forget” concept lets the user install the product in just a few minutes, and when deployed, there is no need for a database administrator. The zero maintenance features of Mimer SQL like non locking transaction control, automatic database reorganization, automated online backup, self tuning database kernel, tight OS integration, and small footprint rewards the users with an unprecedented low total cost of ownership (TCO).

The scalability and high performance of Mimer SQL on Mac OS X make it possible to develop applications for anything from iBooks to enterprise Xserves with thousands of users.

Mimer SQL implements full support for all established database standards. This includes support for ISO SQL:1999, ODBC, JDBC and Unicode. Mimer SQL has built-in multilingual support for more than 150 languages including Chinese, Japanese and 15 different Indian languages. Mimer SQL can be used together with popular development tools like WebObjects, JBoss, Tomcat, Omnis, and 4D.

A beta version of Mimer SQL 9.2 for Mac OS X is available for free download from Mimer’s developer web site (developer.mimer.com).
