Sybase ASE on Linux

Sybase released a free version of Adaptive Server Enterprise for linux a few years ago, and has now moved linux to the "core" platforms that it supports. Sybase on linux is available from http://linux.sybase.com/.

NEW (Sep 8 2004): Sybase has just started offering the Sybase ASE Express Edition for linux. If I read the document correctly this is a FREE (also for production) copy of ASE 12.5.2. It is limited to 1 engine, 2GB of RAM and 5GB of disk. Given the power of today's CPUs this can already offer quite a server - without having to pay the licensing costs.
Please see http://www.sybase.com/linuxpromo for more information.

There is also a free download of Developer versions of the latest releases of ASE (currently ASE 12.5.2). These developer versions are full-featured versions that are freely available, where most of the "extra-cost" options are turned on, but that are limited to a single engine and 25 user connections. They are free for use in development.

I have written an ASE Install Guide for Linux to help newcomers get started.

There is a Sybase on linux mailing list hosted by the International Sybase User Group. Messages can be sent to ase-linux-list@isug.com and you can subscribe to the list by going to http://www.isug.com/ISUG2/ase_linux_form.html. The mailing list is archived and searchable at http://mathforum.org/epigone/ase-linux-list.
