What is ESENT?

ESENT is an embeddable transaction database engine. It was originally distributed with Microsoft Windows 2000 and has been available to developers since then. ESENT can be used for applications that require reliable, powerful, and overhead storage of structured or semi-structured data. The ESENT engine can meet data requirements ranging from a simple hash table that is too large to store in memory to a more complex application such as tables, columns and indexes.

Active Directory, Windows Desktop Search, Windows Mail, Live Mesh and Windows Update are currently based on ESENT for data storage. Microsoft Exchange stores all of the data from its mailboxes (a large server typically has tens of terabytes of data) using a slightly modified version of the ESENT code.
