Pervasive Software® Inc. (NASDAQ: PVSW), a global leader in embeddable data management and data integration software and in enabling revolutionary next-generation analytics, today announced the release of Pervasive PSQL™ v11 MC, with several new capabilities including multicore enablement and Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) support.

Pervasive PSQL v11 is optimized for multicore to allow for increased performance and scalability. With its ability to make more efficient use of commodity 2-, 4- and 8-core servers, Pervasive PSQL v11 provides throughput gains of up to four times that of earlier versions. Its performance benefits the full range of vendor applications that leverage the new version, whether or not those applications are multicore-optimized. The company also released updated versions of its Pervasive PSQL eco-system products: Pervasive DataExchange™ v4, Pervasive Backup Agent™ v3 and Pervasive AuditMaster™ v7 compatible with Pervasive PSQL v11.

“PSQL v11 is truly a parallel implementation that makes use of multicore processors and will accelerate most multiuser applications dramatically,” said Dan Woods, CTO and Editor, CITO Research, a research and analysis firm focused on the needs of CIOs and CTOs.

“The massive performance increase from Pervasive PSQL v10 to Pervasive PSQL v11 exhibits a version-to-version increase in transactions per second that I cannot remember ever seeing in the history of database benchmarking,” said Robin Bloor, Chief Research Analyst and President, The Bloor Group and Founder, Bloor Research.

In addition, Pervasive PSQL v11 supports IPv6, which uses 128-bit addresses to exponentially increase the number of devices that can connect to the internet. The new standard, which succeeds the 32-bit addresses supported in today’s IPv4, is being phased-in in several key markets, most notably Japan.

The new version features expanded Pervasive Direct Access Components (PDAC) to help developers create Pervasive PSQL-based applications with ease using Embarcadero RAD Studio 2010 for Delphi and C++ developers. Pervasive also extended its ADO.NET data provider to embrace new features in .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 including Entity Framework version 1.0 support, to allow for seamless integration for developers who rely on the .NET Framework. Pervasive PSQL v11 now provides 64-bit ODBC connectivity on Windows platforms.
