"Berkeley DB is the database in your Netscape. It is also the database used by Sendmail, Amazon.com, Yahoo and a host of other major ISPs and portal sites. As an embedded database, Berkeley does its work transparently--you may find yourself calling upon its services all day long and not even know it is there."

"And with the release of version 3.0, Berkeley DB just got a great deal better."

"We're very excited about Release 3", said Margo Seltzer, Chief Technology Officer for Sleepycat Software, makers of the Berkeley DB. "We see enormous growth in the market for embedded database systems over the next few years. The market is converging around small mobile computers on one end, and large centralized servers on the other. Berkeley DB was designed to work well in both those environments."
