SQL Anywhere is optimized for mission-critical database applications running outside traditional data center environments requiring little or no onsite IT support. SQL Anywhere 12, the newest release, provides major new enhancements including; support for storage and synchronization of spatial data, iPhone devices, large-scale synchronization environments, and new self-management features.

Version 12.0: Spatial support to enable tracking, location aware querying, data management and synchronization of spatial data; support for OGC and SQLMM standards for spatial data types and APIs, native import for shape files and built in functions to export to KML, GML and SVG formats. Scale-out support to allow high transaction volume database servers to offload read-only and reporting transactions to a self-managing tree of scale-out servers. Mobility tools to effectively manage, monitor, diagnose and deploy large scale sync environments on various device platforms, the addition of iPhone support in SQL Anywhere 12 makes Sybase the only database vendor to provide such capabilities for Blackberry, Windows Mobile and iPhone. Self-management innovations such as server thread auto-tuning that automatically adapts to changing workloads, self-healing statistics management, and synchronization dynamic cache sizing for environments where resources are changing in real-time and DBA intervention is not readily available. Developer productivity enhancements including new Oracle/MySQL compatibility; support for .NET 4.0 and Visual Studio 2010; and enhanced full-text search filtering capabilities.
