Sybase is a relational database system, and Sybase, Inc. the company who sells it. Sybase was was a development of the pioneering Ingres system that also led to Informix and NonStop SQL, as well as the majority of other SQL systems currently in use. Sybase was traditionally the #2 database system behind Oracle, although suffered a major downturn in fortune in the later half of the 1990s when Informix started outselling it by a wide margin. Today Informix is no longer, but the #2 position has since been taken by it's own offspring, Microsoft SQL Server. Today Sybase is a distant third in the marketplace, with less than 10% market share.

Sybase has its corporate headwaurters in Dublin, California, and trades on the NYSE under the symbol SY.
