SQL Database

The Hyper SCADA Server incorporates an SQL database back-end that is based on the database server engine MariaDB. MariaDB allows external ODBC capable applications to query the Hyper SCADA Server's database for current status and "set" control points. Security is a particular focus for DFS and the developers of MariaDB. When critical security issues are discovered the developers immediately prepare and distribute a new release of MariaDB to get the fix out as quickly as possible.

MariaDB provides the ability to easily and quickly export data for use in other applications. These applications include ESRI's ArcView GIS and Crystal Reports, as well as generic tools like Microsoft Access, Excel, Word and Lotus, and more specialized statistical and mathematical analysis applications.
