CYMA 15 Configurations

Pervasive.SQL Version 11.3 is the underlying database engine used by CYMA and generally drives the system requirements. You must purchase a separate license to operate Pervasive.SQL Version 11.3 with your CYMA product. If you have obtained and installed Pervasive.SQL Version 11.3 from a source other than CYMA, please ensure that it meets the requirements below. The Pervasive.SQL Version 11.3 database comes in several different versions, but CYMA 14 uses Pervasive.SQL Version 11.3 or greater.

  • Pervasive.SQL Version 11.3 Workgroup - Pervasive.SQL Version 11.3 Workgroup engine is used for standalone installations. It is the recommended engine if you have five or fewer concurrent users of CYMA. The standard Workgroup engine comes with a license for five concurrent Pervasive users; a 30 day trial is included on the CYMA install CD.
  • Pervasive.SQL Version 11.3 Server - Pervasive.SQL Version 11.3 Server engine is used for true server environments. The Pervasive.SQL Version 11.x Server supports Windows Windows 2003/2008/2012 Server environments. You may license 5, 10, 20, 50 or unlimited user count versions of the Server engine.
  • Pervasive.SQL Version 11.3 Client - Pervasive.SQL Version 11.3 Client engine is used for client/server and peer-to-peer installations. It is the required component to install if you wish to connect a CYMA Workstation to a CYMA multiuser or server configuration on both Pervasive Server or Workgroup installations.
