UniVerse is an operating environment/multi-value database system which runs on top of most major Unix and Linux releases. UniVerse was first created by Vmark systems, which then merged with the UniData Corporation to form Ardent Software, which was then purchased subsequently by Informix and IBM.
Both of these operating environments now run on Windows. Both of them have a BASIC language similar to PICK BASIC which naturally operates on the structures of the multi-value database.
They are both offshoots (or black-box copies) of the Pick operating system.
