With Valentina 2.5.8 Standard ADK, a developer can embed a local copy of the
Valentina database runtime, and distribute their applications royalty free.
This version of Valentina is fully upgradeable, both to Valentina ADKs as
well as Valentina Developer Network, a product that allows royalty free
distribution of Valentina Embedded Server. Because Valentina was originally
developed for high performance and security on a network, transitioning
projects to client-server or web application  implementations only improve

Valentina Database technology was first developed and released by Paradigma
founder and VP of Engineering Ruslan Zasukhin in 1998. The company has since
moved headquarters to the United States, and opened or entered into
agreements for representative offices in Germany and Japan.

"Database performance became sexy again with Valentina. Many vendors claim
superior performance, however after importing millions of records into
Valentina and performing a head to head comparison in executing complex SQL
statements, you will understand why developers have chosen Valentina for
their cross-platform applications," said Ruslan Zasukhin, VP of Engineering.

In addition to being an industry compliant, SQL database system, with full
support for standards like Unicode, encryption, and XML import/export,
Valentina is based on a unique object-relational model. This unique model is
why Valentina executes SQL statements often hundreds of times faster than
competing technologies such as MySQL, MS SQL Server and FileMaker Server -
even with millions of records. Since interface plug-ins to every major
development environment are provided by Paradigma, Valentina is able to take
advantage of native environment features and frameworks.

You can learn more about this special offer either on the Paradigma Software
or Mirye web sites.
