Technical specifications on premise

SQL server

Archie supports four database platforms. With the exception of Firebird, Archie Europe does not provide installation of the SQL environment.

Microsoft SQL server

Archie does not support the Express version, due to the limits that apply to that version. Organizations are responsible for obtaining the necessary Microsoft SQL Server licenses.

Firebird (open source)

Firebird is free. Archie Europe will install the database engine and database. Any support needed regarding the Firebird database should be obtained via Firebird.

MySQL (open source)

Archie supports MySQL version 5.5 and above. We recommend using the latest version. Managing a MySQL server requires knowledge of MySQL. A support contract for commercial use is available on the market. There is also a large online MySQL community that provides support free of charge.


Archie supports Oracle 9i, Oracle 10g and Oracle 11g.
Due to the complex structure of Oracle, the implementation of Archie on an Oracle database takes place in collaboration and close consultation with an Oracle specialist from your organization.
