Mimer SQL is an advanced relational database management system (RDBMS) developed by Mimer Information Technology AB.
Mimer SQL has a number of unique technical solutions to handle some of the more complicated functionality that a database management system must provide.
For example, Mimer SQL provides a solution to the problem of allowing simultaneous access to the database without the danger of a deadlock occurring. This greatly simplifies database management and allows truly scalable performance, even during heavy system-load.
Another significant technical innovation is the data storage mechanism, which is constantly optimized for the highest possible performance and ensures that no manual reorganization of the database is ever needed.
Mimer SQL offers a uniquely scalable solution, including multi-processor support and, with its availability on all major UNIX (including Linux), Windows NT/2000/XP/Vista, Mac OS X, and OpenVMS platforms, is ideally suited for open environments where interoperability is important.
The database management language Mimer SQL (Structured Query Language) is compatible in all essential features with the currently accepted SQL standards, see the Introduction to SQL Standards, for details.
This manual provides a full reference description of the Mimer SQL language. It is a complement to the Mimer SQL Engine User's Manual and the Mimer SQL Engine Programmer's Manual.
