Native API for Python

The Native API for Python provides direct access to globals from outside InterSystems IRIS®. Globals are the tree-based sparse arrays that form the basis of the InterSystems multidimensional storage model and underlie the InterSystems IRIS® object and SQL interfaces. The Native API exposes these native data structures, which provide very fast, flexible storage and retrieval. The Native API also includes the ability to call InterSystems IRIS class methods and routines.

If would like to run Python on the server side, you can also use it as an embedded language using Embedded Python.
