SQL or Structured Query Language is the universal language used for accessing data in relational database systems.
SQL is used in MVS, OS/390, z/OS, DB2, UDB, MySQL, SQL Server, Access, Windows and many other systems.
IBM's flagship database system is DB2/UDB or Universal Data Base. Now just called DB2. DB2 is now available on essentially all of these platforms: Windows, Linux, Sun's Solaris Operating Environment, HP-UX, NUMA-Q, AIX.
Relational is the way to go!
