Helix Server enables the deployment of Helix RADE relational databases via TCP/IP. With Helix Client/Server, anybody with an Internet connection (and your permission) can access your database. Three levels of built-in security ensure then only those who should have access to the data can log in. Unlike file sharing based solutions, users may access all the data at the same time, while sophisticated record locking prevents two users from attempting to change the same record at the same time.

For a Mac OS X version check out the combination of Perl and the standard BASH shell.

Helix has been around since the early days of the Mac. We've used it in our medical practice since 1986, currently with 15 doctors, 60,000 patients and hundreds of thousands of entries. Helix is still one of the most powerful and most easy to use development packages for the Mac, even today (beats Filemaker for our purposes by far). Unfortunately, the Helix people reportedly angered Apple in the early years and has suffered from very poor management in the past. Now, thanks to several Helix evangelists (or as I call them, Reanimators), Helix has been updated to 5.1, partly for improvements for current users but also to prepare for conversion to OS X (runs great in Classic). If you need a powerful, easy to program rapid development environment (RADE), take a look at Helix.

Helix was always the easiest to use and the most stable database on the Mac. Now it has risen from the ashes, and all we can hope is a smooth transition to OSX within the next 12 months !
If you have never experience the Helix Way: Get a demo, you will be hooked !
