ElevateDB - Give your application an edge on the competition
Is your competitor passing on the licensing fees for its database engine to its customers ?
ElevateDB is licensed per-developer, and includes royalty-free distribution. License management isn't required at all, and the money that you used to pay to the database engine vendor is now your profit to keep.
You don't need to use a feature-crippled "free" product in order to avoid licensing fees anymore. With Elevate Software, you are backed by a company that has over a decade of experience in highly-distributed and pre-packaged database application software.
Does your competitor's application have a complicated installation procedure for the database engine that requires an administrator ?
ElevateDB is designed to be included in a pre-packaged database application and can be installed very quickly and easily. The ElevateDB Server is a single EXE (~2MB), only requires a single INI text file for configuration, and can be run as an application or Windows service. Source code to the ElevateDB Server is included with every purchase, so it can be customized and re-branded, if necessary. The ElevateDB client-side code can be compiled directly into Delphi, C++Builder, and Lazarus applications, and consists of a single assembly (~2MB) for .Net applications. ElevateDB client code can also transparently switch between local, single-user and client/server, multi-user usage.
ElevateDB automatically creates all necessary files when they are needed. For example, you can distribute a single database catalog file with your application, and ElevateDB will automatically create the the table files as they are opened by sessions. In addition, ElevateDB provides reverse-engineering facilities that allow you to easily create creation and upgrade SQL scripts that can be run during installation to transparently create any necessary system or database objects.
Once installed, ElevateDB is not fragile and cannot be made inoperable by another application's installation process. Many database engines are extremely sensitive to configuration changes and require constant attention by an administrator.
Does your competitor's application have reliability or performance issues ?
ElevateDB has been used in retail POS, hospital management, physican and dentist practice management, pharmacy management, government and public court system management, and web applications, just to name a few. These applications require constant up-time and consistent performance in order for the application vendor to be successful. ElevateDB can help bring the same type of success to your database application.
