VistaDB consists of a redistributable database engine, Visual Studio integration, tools for data management, documentation, sample code and our fanatical technical support. In addition, VistaDB works with various ORMs and other third party tools.

Easy to Deploy, Program & Upscale

VistaDB is the ideal embedded database for .NET applications: easy to deploy, easy to program, easy to upscale to SQL Server.

Easy to Deploy

The VistaDB engine is a single, small managed assembly you deploy with your app and each database is a single file. No hassles with different versions for x86 versus x64. No COM objects to register. No installer to run. No database server to administer. Just xcopy and go!

Easy to Program

VistaDB is a fully compliant ADO.NET data provider with support for Entity Framework, ADO.NET, and Typed Datasets as well as its own Direct Data Access API for efficient cursor-based operations. VistaDB offers impressive compatibility with T-SQL including stored procedures, updatable views, cascading updates / deletes, table value params, CLR Triggers and CLR stored procs.

Easy to Upscale

VistaDB fully supports the ADO.NET Provider Factory model allowing you write one codebase that can target either VistaDB or SQL Server at runtime. Use VistaDB for the "lite" version of your application in which size and easy of deployment are paramount. And when greater scalability is required, upscale to SQL Server with no code changes.
