Sybase today launched the first mobile and embedded database for Linux.
The company said a beta program including more than 1000 users showed there was a demand for enterprise applications running on Linux.
SQL Anywhere Studio enables users to synchronise data from enterprise servers and workgroup servers to laptops and handheld computing and embedded devices.
Linux developers can use it to embed a fully functional RDBMS database in enterprise applications and deploy them to clients without requiring the support of a database administrator.
In addition, Sybase today said it plans to deliver a fully supported version of its enterprise database Adaptive Server Enterprise for Linux, providing users with a platform for applications including Web content management, database drive Web applications and information portals.
Chris Leisath, director of Sybase's mobile and embedded division commented: "Sybase's delivery of its market leading SQL Anywhere Studio for the Linux platform is expected to spark the rapid development of Linux based mobile and embedded enterprise applications."
