Supported Character Sets

Hyperstage storage supports all ANSI and UTF-8 character sets. This means that Hyperstage can store and retrieve data encoded in 8-bit and multi-byte character sets.

Important: Queries that evaluate against UTF-8 character data columns will execute with less performance than an equivalent query against ASCII character data, due to ASCII support of Character Maps in the Knowledge Grid (see Running Queries in Hyperstage). UTF-8 specific Knowledge Grid extensions will be available in an upcoming release.
