4D Deployment Packages

For every type of end-user, there's a 4D application waiting for them. But not every solution is the same. Whether you need single-user, cross-platform, client-server, or web-based deployment - or all of the above - 4D ensures users get what you need.

4D DEPLOYMENT PACKAGES

4D Server

4D Server integrates a powerful relational database, a SQL server, and an application server, all in one product. 4D Server's architecture is independent of the selected platform, so 4D Server can be run on either Mac or Windows.

4D Server guarantees optimized client access management by using powerful client/server processes. Administrative tasks, such as backup or memory optimization, are handled automatically from the server. Even deployment of client application updates are fully automated, which makes 4D Server a true zero administration server.

4D servers can communicate with external databases (Oracle, Microsoft, etc.) as easily as with Web services on any platform (Microsoft .NET, J2EE, Apple) or application (SAP, MS Office).
