VistaDB is an embedded SQL database that offers significant deployment advantages over Microsoft SQL Compact Edition, Microsoft SQL Server Express, Microsoft Access and other lightweight database alternatives. For example, it is the only .NET embedded database that allows Xcopy deployment of a single DLL for both 32 and 64 bit runtime support.
All rights to software and ongoing business operations have been acquired by eSymmetrix, developer of Gibraltar Software, a suite of products for application monitoring and customer support.
VistaDB is used by thousands of developers worldwide and has been licensed by such prominent companies as Red Box, FedEx, US District Courts, Telligent, Kodak, and Gibraltar Software. There are over 250,000 runtimes deployed to end users around the world.
Said Jason Short, previous owner of VistaDB, "The team at Gibraltar Software is a very good fit for VistaDB. They are highly respected in the VistaDB community and have a vested interest in seeing VistaDB grow since it is also built into their core products. We've worked together closely over the past year integrating each other's products so I can attest to their skill and character. I know VistaDB will be in great hands."
"We've been excited about VistaDB since we first started looking for an embedded database for Gibraltar," said Kendall Miller, CTO for Gibraltar Software. "The ability to target both VistaDB on the desktop and SQL Server with the same code meant we could create better solutions for our customers. When we first found VistaDB we felt it was a great solution for many customers and are thrilled to add it to our portfolio of products."
VistaDB will continue to be a supported product with multiple licensing and technical support options available to customers.
VistaDB was acquired from VistaDB Software Inc, a small team of dedicated senior software engineers with extensive experience in commercial applications centered around large scale data manipulation, search indexes, content filtration, web crawling, and data indexing. They owned and significantly enhanced the product since acquiring it from Vista Software in 2007. The previous owner had been working on the VistaDB software and brand since 1997.
