InterBase is a “full-featured, high performance, ultrafast, encryptable, scalable, relational and embeddable multi-platform SQL database with multi-dimensional data security, disaster recovery and change synchronization” and it offers the ability to embed a low-cost, zero-admin, secure database into cross-platform connected applications.
