  ADABAS 
 
    A  {relational  database}  system  by  {Software  AG}. 
  While  it  was  initially  designed  for  large  {IBM}  {mainframe} 
  systems  (e.g.  {S/370}  in  the  late  1970s),  it  has  been  ported 
  to  numerous  other  {platform}s  over  the  last  few  years  such  as 
  several  flavors  of  {Unix}  including  {AIX}. 
 
  ADABAS  stores  its  data  in  tables  (and  is  thus  "relational") 
  but  also  uses  some  non-relational  techniques,  such  as 
  {multiple  value}s  and  {periodic  group}s.
