Embarcadero Launches FireDAC: Enterprise Data Access for Multiple Devices

New Product Delivers High Performance Enterprise Database Connectivity to Developers

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/28/13 -- Embarcadero Technologies, a leading provider of software solutions for application and database development, today announced the availability of FireDAC, an Enterprise-class data access development library for multiple devices including Windows, Mac, and Mobile. FireDAC works seamlessly with Embarcadero's Delphi, C++Builder, and RAD Studio multi-device development solutions. The release of FireDAC follows Embarcadero's recent acquisition of DASoft's AnyDAC data access technology.

"Enterprises have already been challenged with supporting a wide variety of database platforms in their applications, but that challenge is now multiplied by the growing diversity of desktop and mobile client devices they must support," said Michael Swindell, Embarcadero senior vice president of products. "FireDAC makes it easy for developers to integrate high performance Enterprise database access into their applications across a range of platforms and devices, all from single code base."

FireDAC offers developers support for the largest array of database platforms including Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, IBM DB2, SAP, DataSnap, Sybase SQL Anywhere, InterBase, Advantage Database, PostgreSQL, SQLite, MySQL, Firebird, and Microsoft Access.

FireDAC will be included in the Enterprise and higher editions of Embarcadero's Multi-Device developer tools products and will also be available stand alone. FireDAC also works seamlessly with DataSnap REST servers providing the ability to create ultra thin desktop and mobile client apps using centralized REST-based web, cloud, and database services.

Delphi and C++Builder Enterprise-level data connectivity is enhanced with FireDAC by offering the fastest access performance available, a wider database platform selection, greater ease of use and simplicity, a universal data access API, with database vendor server-specific features. FireDAC supports multiple client devices including Windows and Mac desktop clients and iOS and Android in 2013.

Satisfied Users Worldwide Speak Out
"We decided to switch all our strategic products from ADO and BDE to AnyDAC back in 2008. This step was extremely successful and allowed us to improve the application speed significantly. Additionally, AnyDAC's tracing capabilities allowed us to reduce support costs for our worldwide customer base by at least 30 percent."
--Günther Schoch, CEO of gs-soft, Switzerland

"AnyDAC is an excellent addition to RAD Studio. We moved all of our enterprise and commercial solutions to AnyDAC four years ago and have never looked back!"
--David Taylor, president and chief architect of eXtensia Technologies, USA

"I migrated my BDE and dbExpress applications to AnyDAC, which resulted in higher data access speed and incredible uniformity for accessing different databases, including Firebird, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, and MicroFocus COBOL ISAM."
--Branko Burdian, Independent Software developer

"AnyDAC is a unique access layer in Sesamo's tax fiscal suite. We have written Delphi applications since Delphi 2 and found AnyDAC to be the ultimate solution. We are able to easily leverage it in local, client/server and critical multiuser remote applications with Firebird or MSSQL as backends without any problems whatsoever. The product's high-speed performance and superb support team makes it the perfect data layer for our big ledger project data in development with Delphi XE3. This is a shining product."
--Stefano Monterisi, owner of Sesamo Software, Italia
