If I understand correctly, you don't really need a network-based 
database -- your program will be happy to use a local database. If 
that is correct, then yes, you can use Valentina and it should run 
really fast. I have such a deployment, running a Rev-based (actually 
MetaCard since it is leaner) network program with a local database, 
and it works quite well.
