SQL distribution

« Back to Glossary Index

What is SQL distribution?

SQL (pronounced “sequel” or “ess que ell”) distribution means a single logical database is deployed on a cluster of servers in one or more data centers. The SQL distribution is known for strong consistency, high availability, resiliency and distributed use of data across different geographic environments.

SQL distribution provides a seamless developer and customer experience. For example, developers don’t have to worry about ACID (atomicity, consistency, isolation, durability) compliance or complex joins. Users can rely on better performance and scalability as data grows.

SQL distribution does have a strict schema and structured data.
