Btrieve was modularised in version 6.15 and became one of two database backends that plugged into a standard software interface called the Micro-Kernel Database Engine (the other product is Scalable SQL, a relational database product that uses Structured Query Language, otherwise known as SQL). There have been several versions of the product for DOS, Linux, older versions of Microsoft Windows, Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 and for Novell Net Ware.
