High-performance, low footprint database.

InterBase is a high performance, encryptable multi-platform and scalable relational SQL database for developers to embed into their Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS and Android connected applications.

There is an InterBase VAR Program available for ISVs, OEM and VARs who want to embed InterBase with their applications with a “silent install” and pay for licences periodically as they are distributed. Volume discounts are possible with this licensing option. Please contact us to see if you’re eligible.
