While NexusDB is a completely newly designed product its conceptual foundations date back to 1986. At this time, ENZ, a German company, created a product called BTreeFiler for Turbo Pascal. BTreeFiler was a file-based database system which used the server purely as a file server. In time, Turbo Power sold BTreeFiler under license for ENZ. Turbo Power eventually bought BTreeFiler outright from ENZ.

The times of TurboPower ...

With the launch of Delphi in 1995 TurboPower wrote FlashFiler and right at its release in 1996 was recognised as an efficient alternative to the standard BDE. This was version 1 of FlashFiler. The next version of FlashFiler was then released in 2000 as FlashFiler2, which included multi-threaded server capabilities and the ability to handle large files as well as other significant improvements including SQL support.

In 2002, a team of contracted developers associated with the FlashFiler2 redevelopment started on the enhancements and improvements required for the next version, FlashFiler3. This was delivered to TurboPower in December of 2002, mere weeks before Turbo Power ceased business.

The present and the future ...

Starting with this team, and building upon the strong heritage that stood before it, NexusDB has been designed, developed and implemented as a native VCL component based DBMS engine. This is just the next step in this remarkable product line.

With improved performance and increased functionality, NexusDB now provides a complete database solution for every modern developer.
