SAP DB is an open, SQL-based, relational database management system that provides high availability and performance scaling from small to very large implementations. It supports open standards including SQL, JDBC and ODBC, as well as access from Perl, Python, and PHP. SAP DB is platform independent, so users can deploy it for a wide array of projects.
