Gibraltar Software Acquires VistaDB — September 15, 2010
VistaDB is an embedded SQL database used by thousands of developers worldwide 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.
We've been excited about VistaDB since we first started looking for an embedded
database for Gibraltar. VistaDB is an excellent fit for Gibraltar Analyst because
of its small footprint, high performance, and zero config deployment. At the same
time, VistaDB is highly compatible with SQL so we can offer the option of a SQL
Server back-end for Gibraltar Hub using the same code.
In the past year, we've worked closely with the team at VistaDB Software and gained
a deep appreciation for their product and craftsmanship. So when the owner, Jason
Short decided to pursue new adventures, we jumped at the chance to add VistaDB to
our portfolio of products.
