Synergy DBMS

Synergy DBMS is the file management system for Synergy/DE, enabling you to store and manage your data. Its primary file format is ISAM, which uses a data file index for fast access. Synergy DBMS also supports relative, sequential, and stream file formats. On OpenVMS, Synergy DBMS is implemented with RMS (Record Management Services).
