UniData 7.3.7 includes several fixes including updates to OpenSSL 1.0.1h libraries. This version of UniData has also been verified to work on Windows 2012 and Windows 8.1.

A few other key fixes included are:

An enhancement has been made to EDA that allows users to alter or change existing schemas without having to reload the existing tables. There is a new ECL command, ALTER.EDAMAP, that allows users to add an attribute, such as a column, to the EDA Schema that will append the new attribute to the table without the table having to reload.

At this release, UniData allows the use of SHA-2 signed certificates in its SSL support. This enhancement was a result of dropping SHA-1 support beginning in 2014 by an increasing number of Certificate Authorities including Microsoft.

A problem was found where in a situation where U2 Replication is configured with a single FILE level replication group containing ONE replicated file, all files on the subscriber system are considered as nonwritable subscribing files. At this release, a new FILE level replication group has been added in order to resolve this issue.

Prior to this release, if a RESIZE CONCURRENT command was issued against a recoverable file with the RFS active, the space held by the original file was not released back to the operating system until UniData was completely stopped. This occurred even though the RESIZE completed successfully under certain conditions. This change is in addition to the previous changes detailed in UDT-8887 in version 7.3.3 and has been fixed.

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.
