Rocket U2 Professional Services
Would you like to know what your application is really writing to disk?
Both UniData's Recoverable File System (RFS) and UniVerse's Transaction Logging (TL) build transaction logs that can be analyzed to determine what is really being written to your disk drives. Rocket U2 Professional Services is developing a technique to analyze the RFS & TL logs to determine what is actually happening on your data server. As always, if you can't see something happening, you can't fix it. During a recent Proof Of Concept (POC), Rocket found a significant application error for a customer that saved over 1 million writes during a monthly/quarterly process. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The following products are scheduled for release:
- System Builder SB/XA 6.1.0 for Windows and UNIX
- U2 DataVu 2.0
- UniVerse 11.1.3 for HP/UX Itanium and Solaris SPARC
