  In addition, SAP DB goes beyond relational database technology by offering
object orientation as well as support for managing unstructured data. It
supports open standards including SQL, JDBC and ODBC; access from Perl and

independent, so users can deploy it for a wide array of projects.

   Since 1994, the SAP e-Business Solution is available on SAP DB 
Today  SAP DB is being used by nearly 800 customers.

  On October 5, 2000, at Linux World SAP DB was announced to be made 
as Open Source software using the GNU General Public License for the 
kernel and the GNU Lesser General Public License for clients and programming


I'd never heard of SAP DB before, although I've heard of SAP.

This looks as if it would be good for a ZODB storage.
