Actian PSQL Vx Server 12 Product Information

Actian PSQL Vx Server 12 was released on December 17, 2014. It is a different "edition" of PSQL v12 which differs in the licensing method, but otherwise contains the same exact core database engine as the PSQL v12 product. For more information on the new features and changes in this engine over older versions (i.e. v11, etc.), please refer to the Actian PSQL v12 Production Information page.

In short, the PSQL Vx Server 12 release has three important differences over PSQL v12:

  1. It uses a "capacity-based" licensing, tracking data in use ONLY, instead of users (unique network addresses) or sessions (number of database connections).
  2. The PSQL Vx Server 12 license agreement allows for use in a hosted or SaaS environment, which is not allowed by the PSQL v12 EULA.
  3. The PSQL Vx Server 12 license agreement allows for use from an unlimited number of users from the public Internet or other middle-tier aggregation services, including so-called "thin client" solutions.

This licensing model is completely different from the "classic" edition of PSQLv12. We strongly recommend that you take a few minutes right now to read our License Primer for PSQL Vx to understand these changes.

PSQL Vx Server 12 is sold by "capacity", with these primary options:

  • Small: Up to 5GB of data
  • Medium: Up to 20GB of data
  • Large: Up to 50GB of data
  • Unlimited: Unlimited data size

If you have an intermediate data size (such as 30GB), then you can either purchase the next higher size, or you can use Data Size Increase licenses to increase the allowable data size in your environment, which are also available in several capacities, including 1GB, 5GB, 10GB, or 50GB. You can also obtain temporary capacity increases provide for a bump in capacity for a short period of time (60 days). This can be useful for increasing the system for the holiday rush or tax season, without needing to purchase a full license for permanent use.

If you are unsure of the data size needed for your environment, please contact your application developer.

You can download a 30-day TRIAL from Actian's PSQL Vx Server 12 Web Site now.

Important Note: Windows XP/2003 is no longer officially supported in this release! You must have Windows Vista/2008 or newer. For minimum hardware requirements, check the Actian PSQL Vx/v12/v11 Hardware Requirements page for more details.

We expect application vendors to be announcing support for Actian PSQL Vx Server 12 edition shortly. If you are not sure, check our Application Support pages or contact your application vendor directly.

Pricing can be found on our Actian PSQL Vx Server 12 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 PSQL Vx Server 12 from Actian's Web Site.
