With complete scalability from individual to enterprise level solutions, Omnis applications can be developed on any one supported platform and deployed on any other platform without modification. Supported platforms include, Windows XP and Vista, Mac OS X, and Linux, with full Unicode support. Omnis directly supports traditional SQL databases such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, Sybase, and DB2, as well as TigerLogic's advanced multidimensional database, D3, via the mvDesigner product.
