  • Features

OpenText™ Gupta SQLBase is a fully relational, high performance, embedded database that allows organizations to manage data closer to the customer, where capturing and organizing information is critical. SQLBase provides a self-recovering, highly automated embedded database architecture that enables users from corporate IT to ISVs to deploy SQLBase embedded in software solutions having automated deployment and configuration and automated maintenance. With its small footprint and low TCO, SQLBase is the embedded database of choice for ISVs and organizations around the world.


Gupta SQLBase is an easy embeddable database. It can be integrated into vertical solutions and deployed to IT-less environments. The solution requires very few IT resources for installation, configuration and maintenance to offer a low total cost of ownership (TCO). A small footprint additionally reduces hardware requirements and IT costs.


Gupta SQLBase offers strong AES 256 data encryption and SSL communication encryption. Additional security features prevent brut-force password guessing and data tampering. SQLBase was the first database to offer strong data encryption features.


Gupta SQLBase is developer friendly and nicely integrates with the OpenText™ Gupta Team Developer (TD) and OpenText™ Gupta TD Mobile IDEs. Included drivers enable users to access Gupta SQLBase from all major platforms, including .NET, .NET Core, Java. ODBC and OLE DB drivers are available for developers as well.

Easy ISV Licensing and Mass Deployment

OpenText™ Gupta SQLBase is available as an Embedded Deployment Pack (EDP) allowing users to distribute Gupta SQLBase alongside their software solutions. The Gupta SQLBase EDP contains a configuration tool that helps maintain a count of deployed licenses. The EDP configuration tool can build custom installers that include everything customers need. Users can configure the number of users for the included Gupta SQLBase server. Alternatively, users can build an installation directory that includes everything Gupta SQLBase needs to run and can use their own deployment mechanisms for distribution to users or customers.

Automate installation, configuration and maintenance

Gupta SQLBase provides automated deployment and configuration. Automated maintenance further reduces total cost of ownership of database solutions that include Gupta SQLBase.

Support for TD Mobile mobile Workforce apps

Gupta SQLBase is a great central database for TD Mobile mobile workforce apps with easy integration into the development system and easy application deployment. Flexible licensing options allow for easy centralized deployment.

Great companion for Gupta Team Developer (TD) desktop applications
