I have been listening to my local police on my scanner radio for years now since I am a "scanner freak". Since police have the authority to gain access to someones DMV files by running the license plates and license number of course, it has to get it from a server or database program from the DMV .
I have been always wondering about that. What Operating System or Server does the DMV use to store all of the DMV records and plates when police runs them through their dispatch center and then from the dispatch center they of course get the info from the DMV database? I know the dispatch uses the CAD System for emergencies and for other stuff. But what does the DMV use?
I have alot of guesses below and I need you to correct me if Im wrong (if someone knows):
IBM Mainframes running i5-OS, AIX, Linux...
iSeries AS/400 servers
Windows NT Server (which I doubt)
Windows running MySQL database
UNIX running ORACLE
Well, I have the my guesses above.
