InterSystems IRIS® data platform provides high-performance, full-featured SQL access. You can use SQL with InterSystems IRIS at scales from queries running on a single CPU core, to parallel queries using dozens of cores, to distributed queries across a cluster of InterSystems IRIS servers.

InterSystems SQL is fully integrated with InterSystems IRIS object technology and also provides connectivity with ODBC and JDBC clients. Other features include automatic parallel query execution, transparently distributed queries, and support for both standard SQL queries and stored procedures.
