RSQL can manage millions of records, each table and index being stored in separate files.
RSQL runs on Linux and Windows.
RSQL is written in Go, a powerful and compiled language.

If you write applications in C# and connect to MS SQL Server, and if your TSQL scripts are simple enough, RSQL may be good enough for you, free and without any limitation. You just have to change the driver reference name in your code.
The first usable version of RSQL has been published in December 2017.
An article has been published in the January 2018 issue of the german magazine LinuxUser http://www.linux-community.de/Internal/Artikel/Print-Artikel/LinuxUser/2018/01/Datenstapler .
RSQL still lacks features such as subqueries, DESC clause, etc. See list at http://rsql.ch/misc/about/
But more features will be added in the future, so be patient and don't hesitate to send me your feedbacks.
