Rocket® UniVerse

UniVerse offers a nested relational (MultiValue) data model which means intuitive data modeling and fewer resulting tables. UniVerse v11.2.5 adds powerful high availability, interoperability, administration and security capabilities to the solid extended relational database.

Includes the UniData and UniVerse Basic Developer Toolkit (BDT), a modern, integrated development and debugging tool for Basic Developers. Based on Eclipse, it provides multiple views to the information you need to build applications quickly. All of the resources you need are there, including a code editor, dictionary editor and an integrated debugger. Includes an embedded development language for creating server-side business logic.

Developers can build in security with Automatic Data Encryption, for encrypting data at rest, and OpenSSL, to create secure communication channels for UniVerse-based applications. Sensitive data used in indexes and keys can also be encrypted. UniVerse supports Pluggable Authentication Modules (PAM) and Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), enabling UniVerse applications to authenticate users through the use of independent authentication modules at runtime.

UniVerse provides several options for integration into the Microsoft .NET Framework. This flexibility allows you to build and deploy a wide variety of Web-based applications that work seamlessly with .NET. UO.NET for Compact Framework can extend your application to mobile devices.

UniVerse supports numerous Java-based interfaces as well, including JBDC for standards-based connectivity and our own UniObjects for Java high speed native interface. Leverage powerful Java programming tools including the Eclipse framework to enable powerful, platform-independent solutions.

This product scales from the smallest workgroup to thousands of concurrent users when using symmetric multiprocessor (SMP)-based hardware.

UniVerse provides automatic and dynamic tablespace allocation to fit the size of the data server - providing optimum performance and minimizing disk usage for maximum efficiency.

  • U2 Replication extends your capability to deliver high-availability for your business-critical applications. Build a standby system, a report server, a data warehouse or a replicate of your data for whatever purpose you need with U2 Replication.
  • External Database Access (EDA) gives you the ability to transparently access and update data residing in an SQL database from an existing UniVerse application. Now you can store some or all of your data in UniVerse files or an external database such as IBM DB2 Universal Database while protecting your investment in your business logic.Vineyard Cost Tracking
  • XAdmin or eXtensible Administration, is a GUI tool that provides you with customizable views for monitoring performance and resource utilization. It is also extensible, so you can add your own administration views and operations, as well as utilize the existing plug-ins as part of your own administration tool.

Features & Benefits

UniVerse offers a nested relational (MultiValue) data model which means intuitive data modeling and fewer resulting tables. UniVerse V11.1 adds powerful high availability, interoperability, administration and security capabilities to the solid extended relational database.

UniVerse fully supports industry standard interfaces, such as fully integrated ANSI standard, SQL, ODBC and Active X controls OCX database interfaces. It also provides enterprise data source connectivity to relational and non-relational data using any available ODBC driver on UNIX or Windows NT. High Performance and Scalability UniVerse, using SMP based hardware, scales from the smallest workgroup to thousands of concurrent users. UniVerse solutions for both UNIX and Windows NT are economically sized and economically priced compared to other RDBM's.

  • Highlights:

    UniVerse is an extended relational (MultiValue™) data server optimized for embedding in superior solutions and is ideal for markets which target small to medium businesses, as well as larger enterprises.

    • Robust high-availability capabilities including U2 Replication, point-in-time recovery and the ability to recover all or part of your data down to a single record.
    • Includes UniData and UniVerse Basic Developer Toolkit (BDT), a modern, integrated development and debugging tool for Basic Developers
    • U2 Extensible Administration (XAdmin), a GUI tool that delivers simultaneous configurable views of what administrators need to know
    • Database independence through External Database Access (EDA)
    • Efficient encryption of data at rest with flexible encryption key management
    • Enhanced licensing and authorization process offers streamlined configuration while protecting licensed assets
    • Highly scalable, low-cost data management system with many innovative features
    • Support for Web services client protocols including XML and SOAP
    • U2 Web Services Development tool with a configurable SOAP server to quickly create and deploy Web services from BASIC subroutines and UniVerse queries via the industry-standard Web Services Description Language (WSDL)
    • Includes UniObjects for .NET (UO.NET)—a native, scalable, high-performance API for developing in the Microsoft® .NET framework. Through UO.NET for Compact Framework, this capability is extended to a number of handheld devices.
    • Robust features for high availability, failover and data replication available
    • IBM WebSphere® MQ support through U2MQI
    • National Language Support (NLS) using Unicode standard
    • Transaction management with support for nested transactions
    • Broad support for open-standards-based SQL interfaces such as JDBC™, OLEDB and ODBC

  • Benefits:
    • MultiValue architecture requires fewer tables whose sizes are dynamically managed by the data server. UniVerse sites require less data server administration with smaller sites having few to no resources allocated.
    • Shortened development cycles are possible due to ease of data server design along with a tightly integrated development environment.
    • UniVerse supports a broad range of information management applications with excellent performance and reliability. As a result, a large number of industry solution providers use UniVerse to develop and support their applications. This enables the client to more quickly satisfy their requirements by buying, rather than building, solutions.

  • Features:
    • Connection Pooling (CP) enables developers to design and deploy applications that do not use persistent connections to the data server, such as in a Web environment. Connection Pools are authorized separately and do not consume data server licenses.
    • UV/Net offers local access to data on remote UniVerse servers.
    • Transaction Logging provides warm-start recoverability in case of system or media failures.
    • U2 Replication Replication automatically publishes critical data to read-only copies of UniVerse files to one or more subscribing UniVerse systems. for use as a backup system, a data warehouse, reporting system or for other use.
    • External Database Access (EDA) External database access (EDA) provides the flexibility to store some or all of your data in either UniVerse files or an external database such as Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle and IBM DB2®.
    • Automatic Data Encryption offers a powerful yet simple means of protecting sensitive data, indexes and keys with few or no application changes. Data can be encrypted at the column (field) level or by encrypting entire records, while access is granted at the user or group level for role-based security.
    • Device Licensing for Server Edition offers the ability to customize the number of connections per device such as a user's PC. This provides greater flexibility when fewer than 10 connections per device are required and the additional value of Enterprise Edition is not an alternative.
