PSQLv11 Logo

PSQLv11 End of General Availability: Actian officially stopped selling PSQLv11 licenses as of June 30, 2015. The product has entered Transition Support (no new service packs) as of December 31, 2015. As the largest Pervasive reseller in the US, we have stocked up on this product line and still have some licenses available for our customers, as indicated below. When stock is exhausted, upgrading to PSQLv12 may be the only option for some users.

Pervasive PSQL v11 was originally released on September 22, 2010 and has been updated with three separate Service Packs. In 2013, Pervasive Software was purchased by Actian Corporation, and they subsequently changed the name from Pervasive PSQL v11 to Actian PSQL v11. Like Pervasive PSQL v10, PSQL v11 is available for Windows and Linux in both 32-bit and 64-bit levels. However, PSQL v11 does offer some VERY useful new features over PSQL v10 and earlier, including the following:

  • New Operating Systems: The SP3 release has been certified by Microsoft for Windows Server 2012. Further, it has been tested and is supported by Actian on Windows 8 as well (though not on Windows RT, used by the Microsoft Surface tablet.)
  • Multi-Core Support: Improved multi-threading allows for much faster response on multi-core equipment with a large number of users hitting the database simultaneously. This is a huge gain for those "workhorse" servers! Why is this important? Check out the Forbes Multi-Core paper for more information.
  • Full 64-bit Support: Whereas the PSQLv10 64-bit engine had only 64-bit Btrieve engine (MKDE), this release now brings the SQL engine into the x64 world, again allowing for substantial improvements in memory resource allocation and performance. No more 2GB memory space limit!
  • IPv6 Support: As many organizations are evaluating a move to IPv6, the PSQLv11 database engine is already ready to support you!
  • Telephone Activation: It is now possible to activate your license over the phone when you do not have Internet access from your server, instead of having to use the cumbersome "offline activation" process.
  • Developer-Level Updates: Software developers can now leverage the ADO.NET Provider Support for .NET Entity Framework and PDAC for RAD Studio 2010, Delphi RAD Studio XE2, and XE3 (32-bit only) environments. There is also a new ADO.NET Data Provider v4.0 and 4.1 (and v3.2 is now deprecated).
  • New Security Solutions: Updated versions of Backup Agent, AuditMaster, and DataExchange are available for PSQLv11, including a 64-bit version of DX!
  • Windows 2008 R2 Certification: This release will be Microsoft-certified for Windows 2008 R2.
  • Performance Monitor Counters: New performance counters are integrated into the Windows environment to provide more information about the running state of the engine, include cache accesses, latency, operation counts, and other important data not currently provided in the Monitor.
  • New SQL Features: New virtual tables provide access to the system catalog (dictionary) from SELECT statements. This is in addition to the system stored procedures. SQL queries can now include ORDER BY in a subquery -- very handy for finding the TOP entry in a subquery! The CREATE INDEX statement has also been expanded to create specific index numbers, which can be useful in fixing DDF problems.
  • License and Logging Enhancements: A new grace period will be implemented for when licenses get disabled, in addition to a notification tray for critical problems. Important logging issues will also be logged into the operating system Application log. Get more information about these changes here.
  • Backup Solutions: Both the Backup Agent and VSS Writer are now included at no additional charge with the Server Engine. If your backup software uses Volume Shadow Copy Services (VSS), then the VSS Writer will work automatically. Otherwise, you can install the Backup Agent and use that solution instead. If you are running a Workgroup Engine, the Backup Agent is still available for an additional cost.
  • Licensing Changes: SP2 licenses are now bit- and platform-agnostic. This means that you can install either 32-bit or 64-bit with the SAME license. You can switch from Windows to Linux as well. (Users with an older , platform-specific, license key can exchange an existing key for a new one by contacting Actian.)
  • Updated Tools: The Monitor utility has been updated to show session and data-in-use metrics, which is handy if you are contemplating a move to Actian PSQL Vx. A new Monitor is also available within the PCC, which offers some room for expansion. The Query Plan Viewer has also been improved in several areas, making it easier to use and understand.
  • Licensing Changes: SP3 licenses will be afforded 30 reactivations (up from 10). Even better, licenses that are in the "Failed Validatation" state can be fixed by the end user directly, without Actian intervention! This can be done up to 5 times.
  • NO Windows 10 Support: On June 15, 2015, Actian announced that they had NO plans to support PSQL v11 on Windows 10.

Important Note: Windows 2000 is no longer supported in this release! You must have Windows XP or newer. For minimum hardware requirements, check the Actian PSQL v11 Hardware Requirements page for more details.

Want more details? Get Actian's formal Product Comparison Guide to see what features you might be missing if you are still running PSQLV8, PSQLv9, or PSQLv10. If you're not sure if you want the Workgroup Engine or the Server Engine, check out this comparison chart.

Concerned about high availability and fault tolerance? Check out Actian's white paper on business critical requirements today.

Many of the application vendors we work with have already tested the Actian PSQL v11 update and are working to fully support this new release! Others are still in the evaluation phase. If you are not sure, check our Application Support pages or contact your application vendor directly.

Pricing can be found on our Actian PSQL v11 price list, or you can BUY IT NOW from our on-line store. If you want to try it out before you buy it (a really good idea!), you can get a downloadable trial license of PSQLv11 from Actian's Web Site.
