IMAGE/SQL: Reliable and Fast Database

IMAGE is the primary reason that the HP 3000 was a success. It is a reliable, simple, fast database for MPE. After about a decade of enhancements it was renamed TurboIMAGE, then TurboIMAGE/XL after the PA-RISC migration. Programs can access and update records using IMAGE intrinsics.

Today it is known as IMAGE/SQL because it includes an SQL (Structured Query Language) frontend and client-server support for PC accessors.
