Scalable SQL 92-compliant relational database.

Overview

FrontBase is a high performance, scalable, SQL 92 compliant relational database server created in the Internet age for universal deployment.

FrontBase was created to fill the need for a robust and scalable relational database server that was Internet enabled, had no downtime, and required zero administration. FrontBase's speed, wide range of features, and flexible structure can give you the competitive edge. FrontBase is not only incredibly fast, but is also a very scalable relational database server. Our customers use FrontBase to create everything from small personal databases to some of the largest enterprise level databases in the world - yet without any need for expensive database administration staff. In business since 1996, FrontBase not only creates tools, but also mission critical applications, such as the Command and Control Center for the Copenhagen Police, a 24/7 emergency response system. With a dedicated Support division, and separate divisions for Tools, Core Development, and Professional Services, FrontBase is ready to help you achieve your goals with three offices around the world. (IMPORTANT! As of release 7.2.9 and release 5.2.8, FrontBase™ does not require any form of license.) (Note to mods: what the above means is that they now give the database away completely for free, but charge lots of money for technical support).

What's new in FrontBase

Version 7.2.14:
  • An explicit collation used for an escaped like involving any types is now selected correctly.
  • Explicit per roundtrip auto commits is now handled correctly.
  • Any type tiny integers was not compared as a numeric comparison.
  • The SQL log file and the FrontBase log files were not controlled by the etc/ FrontBase.config.

Are these guys really a company or a bunch of hackers? No compatibility between versions 3 and 4. I guess it doesn't matter if there's no installed base. Glad I didn't waste too much time with the "prototype version." Their website (frontbase.com) says the latest version is 3.6.2 but here we are talking about 4.1.1. What's up with that?

I looked into this a couple of years ago (planning a migration from a FileMaker database) and it seemed pretty good at the time, but I think they've been left behind by MySQL (which I settled on) and others. It may be a good (or great) product but no critical mass!

There is an installed base and a rather impressive one. Apple uses FrontBase in many of its user-driven forums as well as other internal functions. Many other corporations use it, too. FrontBase is very, very cool and offers some security options not found in other sql-based database engines. It has a tool to help convert from other db structures inclusing FileMakerPro and a pretty good support system if you need it. We have been looking at replacing MySQL with a few FB servers, but have not had the budget yet to do so, but it is the plan.
