Conference Schedule

Phoenix 2019 - April 8th-11th
More Info



Release Date: Sunday, April 15, 2012

Some emerging technologies associated with UniData V7.3 are high availability and interoperability.

UniData 7.3 offers more protection for your applications. Improvements include the additional option of Digest Authentication for CallHTTP interface in UniBasic. Digest Authentication protocol provides a more secure method of authenticating HTTP calls than basic authentication.


U2 Dynamic Objects (UDO) provide an easier way to exchange data with web services through UniBasic and allows you to easily provide or consume data in JSON format through the creation of a UDO object.

High Availability

This new version of UniData increases your options for keeping your applications available. You can replicate your data to a SQL database in addition to keeping your data safely stored in UniData, and replication using the External Database Access (EDA) feature is now available. Store your data in UniData and it is simultaneously replicated to Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, or IBM DB2. Use the replicated database for data-mining or reporting while you use UniData as your production workhorse.


UniData 7.3 is even better at interoperating with the SQL world. With the new U2 Metadata Manager (U2 MDM) you can use many SQL based tools to access and manipulate your data while preserving your investment in your application. U2 MDM performs two important functions:

  • Generates and maintains metadata that defines your data and makes access from SQL-based tools a snap. MDM generates the basic map of the data for you. Then it's just a matter of fine-tuning the generated map to your specifications.
  • Enables data-type enforcement to makes sure your data is in the right format before being stored in the database

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.
