All the ADK products by themselves are local databases, but if you get
Valentina Developer Network, you can deploy Embedded Server, which is very
definitely a networked database. There is a "client" in each ADK though that
can connect with Embedded Server or Valentina Office Server. VDN also
includes X number of ADKs with it, depending on the level. That makes it
possible to build true client-server solutions that can store data both on
the server and locally.

Office Server has several extra features built in, most of which are
ala-carte with Embedded Server, like SSL and Bonjour/Zero Config and the
forthcoming Valentina Reports and iPhone client. We also provide support to
end customers who get Office Server. If you are a VDN developer and you
deploy a product, then necessarily, you need to support your own solution.

With Valentina, you can work with data in RAM, or on disk.
