(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.
The opposite is a dynamic database management system.
