What’s New in Rocket UniVerse 12

UniVerse has always been efficient and inexpensive to operate, but UniVerse 12 is even better at handling heavy workloads and reducing the risk of file corruption.

  1. Accelerated transaction performance and query processing
  2. Improved data integrity, reliability, and accessibility

Efficiency and speed-to-market mean faster returns on your investment

UniVerse doesn’t require a large administrative or programming staff to implement, operate, or maintain. By lowering these costs, UniVerse accelerates the time to value for applications, and provides exceptional short- and long-term ROI. And with low implementation and operating costs, it’s easy for UniVerse customers to deliver better applications up front, with more incremental improvements for customers or business users over time.

UniVerse supports multiple programming languages, including Python, with multiple interfaces for your tiered architecture. You can pick and choose the best development solutions based upon your staff’s capabilities. The Rocket MultiValue Application Platform accelerates the speed of application development, allowing you to remain agile and respond quickly to address your ever-changing requirements.

Secure and auditable

Our complete approach to security and auditing gives you the capabilities you need to protect your most valuable asset–your data.

SSL/TLS secures connections to the data server, in addition to securing data in transit from snooping or eavesdropping.

Automatic data encryption makes it easy to adhere to the highest security standards, protecting data at rest on the disk. Only trusted users with the encryption key can view data, and stolen data is rendered useless without the encryption key. Access is granted at the user or group level via role-based security, reducing the time required for DBA maintenance. The result is lower operating cost to run the data server.

Rocket UniVerse Audit Logging

Auditing capabilities within UniVerse provide traceability and proof of actions, assisting with compliance documentation for regulations such as HIPAA/HITECH and Sarbanes-Oxley. Audit logs cannot be changed once written, providing complete audit trails to external auditors. Auditing policies can be modified “on the fly” (by authorized personnel only) without restarting the database. You can trap and trace attacks or data misuse originating internally or externally to your organization when they occur.

Audit Logging Change Data Capture (CDC) captures changes at the individual field level (instead of at the record level), resulting in improved performance while also providing specifics of what data was changed by who (and when). CDC also helps with compliance reporting since it captures exactly what was changed, which many mandates require.

High Availability / Disaster Recovery (HA/DR)

We understand the constant pressure to ensure systems are up and running. With the advent of web and mobile interfaces, solutions can be deployed to more users, compounding the burden on systems. System failures and downtime can result in the loss of substantial revenue and missed productivity, and can even entail personal career risk. UniVerse provides a solid foundation, with HA/DR solutions that are highly robust and enable you to recover quickly from outages with minimal business impact.

The UniVerse Recoverable File System (RFS) maintains a persistent change log (journal), so when an unexpected outage takes place, the file system can quickly restore to the last complete transaction. RFS completes your HA/DR strategy by keeping track of files not yet committed to the disk in the event of a system crash or power failure and brings these systems back online quickly while reducing the risk of file corruption. Your customers will have confidence that they are working with a stable, secure company.
