Panorama Enterprise Server is the first totally RAM based general purpose database server for Mac OS X. This server allows lightning fast RAM based databases to be shared by multiple users with full record locking. These users may be on a local network or spread across the Internet (or even without a network at all, see below). The Panorama Enterprise Server can also be used to create ultra-fast Web database applications. Unlike traditional client/server systems that sequester all of the data on a central server, the Panorama Enterprise system uses a "mesh" architecture to distribute RAM based

I was going to wait before posting a review, but felt compelled to address the previous comments.

AFAIK, people have been using Panorama on Intel machines for years.
Regarding a specific version for Intel processors, this is from ProVUE's Website:
"For 2009 we're working on new versions of Panorama for Intel processors (for both Mac OS X and Windows)."

It seems that version 5.5 is from December 2007, and 5.5.1 is from July 2008.

It would be nice to have a more "modern" interface, but given the power and functionality of Panorama it definitely deserves more than 3-stars.
Bento has a prettier interface. FileMaker 10 too. I would rather use Panorama. In my limited experience, Panorama's databases are smaller than FileMaker's, and work is faster and more accurate. For example, when importing records, finding data, etc. And this is just very basic stuff.

That GUI is horrendous. I don't see this app going on my Mac. GUI's like that belong on Windows.

interface is a little outdated.
panorama seems to have many more features than than even the newest Filemaker 10 even though the last update for panorama looks like several years old.

I tried the desktop/client version and noticed it is PPC only.
I called their sales line on 1/16/2009, and asked if they have plans to release an intel version. they said they have no plans at this time.

i would really consider switching from Filemaker if they had an intel version and updated interface.

It's a fabulous database, which I first tried it 15 years ago. Unfortunately, almost all of the program Windows use unchangeable Geneva 9.0 font (or something close), which I find barely legible these days.

It's fast, works in house and/or over the internet and it's virtually crash proof.

I can highly recommend Panorama Enterprise after two years of running it for shared databases and for dynamic web publishing.

Panorama Enterprise Server is the first totally RAM based general purpose database server for Mac OS X. This server allows lightning fast RAM based databases to be shared by multiple users with full record locking. These users may be on a local network or spread across the Internet (or even without a network at all, see below). The Panorama Enterprise Server can also be used to create ultra-fast Web database applications. Unlike traditional client/server systems that sequester all of the data on a central server, the Panorama Enterprise system uses a "mesh" architecture to distribute RAM based copies of the shared data across the network. This mesh technology dramatically cuts delays associated with common database tasks by spreading the load across the network. The Enterprise system works much like a formation of fighter jets teamed with an aerial tanker. Instead of hoarding all of the data on the central server, the Enterprise system distributes complete, redundant copies of the shared data across the network mesh. Operations that don't involve other clients (searching, sorting, analysis, reports, etc.) are performed independently at solid state speed in each client's local RAM, there are no disk delays anywhere in the system. The server is only involved for coordinating data flow across the mesh, managing record locking and updating modified data on clients as necessary. One unique feature of the system is that users can disconnect from the network and continue working even when completely offline and detached -- for example when on an airplane or away from network connections. Database changes made while offline are synchronized automatically when returning to the network. No special setup or programming is required -- this synchronization logic is built into the server itself. This feature is especially useful for companies with employees working in the field. Other key features of Panorama Enterprise Server include WYSIWYG design tools for building Web forms, remote configuration, management and debugging tools, support for Google Analytics, and automatic backup of live databases.
