database (static DBMS) A database consisting of
"information-based relationships", one that is rigorously
structured to facilitate retrieval and update in terms of
inherent relationships. This creates a static environment
wherein the locations of the related records are already
known. Typical static DBMS are either hierarchical (IMS,
System 2000) or a CODACYL (network or plex) DBMS (such as
TOTAL, IDMS, IDS, DMS-2). These environments
facilitate rapid, high volume processing of data.
