I know, another new, later software product release and I hear you wondering:
What's the big deal ?
It's the biggest release for the UniData database in over 10 years and has a new true 64 bit architecture !
What's in it for me ?
- 64-Bit File Support - Increased I/O performance and ability to work with larger file sizes. No more 2GB limit on file sizes.
- 64-bit Architecture - No memory limitations posed by 32-bit software. No need to maintain a mixed-architecture environment and see a potential performance benefit when the database is fully cached in memory.
- Support for IPv6 - As the world is running out of IPv4 Internet addresses for all web-enabled devices, IPv6 compatibility provides the ability to create more IP addresses for years to come, and utilizes a more secure data pack in the process.
- Replication Performance Monitor - System Administrators can now monitor traffic, system state, and metrics across multiple publishers and subscribers. Identify performance bottlenecks in real time that could be tuned by changes made in the repconfig settings.
- Account Based Licensing - Allows application service providers to manage licenses and allocate based on the account being used. This way you can prevent lower priority accounts from consuming licenses intended for higher priority accounts.
- Install / Upgrade Improvements - The installer and update process has been overhauled, with significant customer input into the design changes.
- Security Enhancements - Secure your data with the latest in OpenSSL updates, @ID & Index encryption, and other Automatic Data Encryption improvements.
