Rocket Software has augmented the functionality of its award-winning UniData MultiValue Database, part of the MultiValue Application Platform, with the addition of Python programming support and audit logging capabilities. These enhancements expand the potential user base for UniData and improve the ability to recruit new development talent, and allow users to easily establish configurable histories of interactions, events, and activities.

"Being involved with UniData for more than 30 years and still firmly believing in the rock-solid 24/7 performance of the database, we now have a breath of fresh air blowing in the form of Python for U2," said Jan van Schalkwyk of Australian insurer YOUI. "This much-anticipated release will extend the life of many applications way into the future and beyond. Modern applications can now be developed with a wealth of resources available."

The inclusion of Python support opens up MultiValue databases to architects and programmers who use one of the world's most popular languages, helping organizations that rely on MultiValue to expand their hiring base.

In addition, because companies must conform to audits in multiple formats and from various organizations, audit logging lets UniData users create audit histories to help meet standards such as HIPAA, PCI-DSS, and the upcoming European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). UniData now makes spot audits easy with more granular audit data and access to chronologically generated data, and the new software includes support for sequential file logs, creating improved performance without system interruptions.

"After performing rigorous testing of this new version of UniData, the features and flexibility of this product answer almost every conceivable audit question," said Russell Patterson, IT Specialist for Rural Finance, a specialized lender fostering sustainable growth in Australia. "The Audit module can be configured from high-level system-wide activity to specific user file-level access and change logging, to program and process logging. UniData Audit has all the answers. If you can think of an audit question, UniData Audit can be configured to provide the answer."

About UniData

A MultiValue application platform for developing fast, flexible and secure applications

Organizations rely on Rocket UniData, a best-in-class of the MultiValue application platform, for scalable business apps that can evolve as needs change. As a stable, secure, fast data server engine with high availability and low administrative overhead, Rocket UniData is ideal for rapid development using modern tools. On-premises or in the cloud, UniData serves nearly a million users worldwide.

Performance by design

  • A unique and resilient architecture delivers performance advantages compared to traditional SQL databases
  • variable length records and tables within tables simplifies database design, eliminating the constraints of SQL normalization
  • using direct-read capabilities that result in fewer I/O operations than required by SQL, UniData is faster than many other databases
  • variable length records mean less data is transmitted within the entirety of the system which translates to:
    • more responsive mobile applications
    • more efficient replication (for disaster recovery, high availability and more)
  • Rapid development means rapid returns

    UniData includes multiple, easy-to-use programming languages (including Python) with multiple standard supplied interfaces (Node.js, .NET, Java, ODBC, JDBC, RESTful via JSON) for multi-tier solutions. Accelerate your teams productivity by selecting the best development tools based upon your staffs capabilities.

    Security is paramount

    Rocket embeds the most effective security standards for encryption technology deep within the data server, so your data is secure no matter its location, and whether in-transit or stored on disk.

    • SSL/TLS secures connections to the MultiValue server and encrypts data in transit for protection from snooping or eavesdropping. Third parties can also validate and accredit our cryptographic modules for FIPS 140-2 compliance.
    • Automatic data encryption ensures only trusted users with the encryption key can view data. Stolen data is rendered useless without the encryption key.
    • UniData also offers role-based security for users accessing the application. Required DBA maintenance to implement and maintain these capabilities is simple and efficient.
