Conference Schedule

Phoenix 2019 - April 8th-11th
More Info



Release Date: Friday, February 13, 2015

Highlights of This Release Include

64-Bit File Support - Experience increased I/O performance and work with larger file sizes than ever before! No more 2GB limit on file sizes!

64-bit Architecture - Take advantage of the most current hardware without the memory limitations posed by 32-bit software! Eliminate the need to maintain a mixed-architecture environment and see a potential performance benefit when the database is fully cached in memory.

Support for IPv6 - Be ready for the Internet of Things! As the world is running out of IPv4 Internet addresses for all web-enabled devices, IPv6 compatibility provides the ability to create more IP addresses for years to come, and utilizes a more secure data pack in the process.

Replication Performance Monitor - Allows system administrators to monitor traffic, system state, and metrics across multiple publishers and subscribers. Identify performance bottlenecks in real time that could be tuned by changes made in the repconfig settings.

Account Based Licensing - Allows application service providers to manage licenses and allocate based on the account being used. This way you can prevent lower priority accounts from consuming licenses intended for higher priority accounts.

Install / Upgrade Improvements - UniData 8.1 has overhauled its installer and update process in this release, with significant customer input into the design changes. See the UniData Installation Guide for full details!

Security Enhancements - Secure your data with the latest in OpenSSL updates, @ID & Index encryption, and other Automatic Data Encryption improvements.

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.
