AquaLogic Data Services Platform (ALDSP) provides a wide array of data services designed to improve data access from disparate data sources for a wide range of clients. Using such services, organizations can create virtual databases that can more quickly and accurately model their dynamic enterprise.

Data services encapsulate the logic for reading, writing, creating, updating, and deleting information, insulating data consumers from having to contend with multiple data source formats and connection mechanisms.

Data Services Studio provides the Eclipse-based tools and frameworks needed for rapid development and deployment of data services. Java, Web service, and SQL-based client applications can access deployed data service operations.

Note: AquaLogic Data Services Platform was initially named Liquid Data®.
