Advantage Databse Server (ADS) Tips

We are planning an upgrade to use Advantage Database Server (ADS by Extended Systems-Sybase) for our App that uses DBF/CDX. Is there Anyone who did this conversion? Any tips ?, i.e.:

-- Recommended or not?
-- Does it really improve parformance dramatically as they claim?
-- DOs and DONT's.


RE: Advantage Databse Server (ADS) Tips

ADS makes a big difference.

We have Clipper based applications with CDX indices, and have very high transaction levels, especially for barcode tracking.

Some of our larger sites have individual tracking tables in excess of 4Gb.

Thanks... You made my day. I'm looking for success stories to advance my case.
