What is SQL/DS?

Post by Anuj Dhawan » Tue Dec 17, 2013 2:08 pm

SQL/DS (Structured Query Language/Data System), released in 1981, was IBM's first commercial relational database management system. It implemented the SQL database query language.

SQL/DS ran on the DOS/VSE and VM/CMS operating systems. A little later, IBM also introduced DB2, another SQL-based DBMS, this one for the MVS operating system. The two products have coexisted since then; however, SQL/DS was rebranded as "DB2 for VM and VSE" in the late 1990s.
