Latest Release Highlights
HPE Shadowbase for HPE NonStop, Version 6.410 was released for General Availability (GA) for HPE Integrity NonStop i systems (H and J series), and HPE Integrity NonStop X systems (L series). It includes several important new features:
Of course, the normal bi-directional cutoff processing still happens; the cutoff only applies to events generated outside of replication from the source to the target. This enhancement is of particular interest to active/passive RDF customers when they migrate to HPE Shadowbase software and leverage the more-advanced bi-directional Shadowbase architectures. Additional features to note:
A new Enscribe DDL “Flattener” and SQL table create utility, SBDDLUTL will be released later this year. The utility converts Enscribe data definition language (DDL) into a separate/new “flattened” file schema format so that they can be translated into a corresponding SQL CREATE TABLE script. The SQL CREATE TABLE script can be created for any of the HPE Shadowbase-supported SQL targets, including SQL/MP, SQL/MX, Oracle, SQL Server, Sybase, MySQL, DB2, SAP Hana, and others.
SBMAP, a new mechanism will also be released later this year. It provides data transformation and mapping rules to the HPE Shadowbase for HPE NonStop replication engine using a scripting language in a lightweight, readable format using SQL/MP functions for transformation without the need for custom user exits.
Development is in progress for HPE Shadowbase for HPE NonStop, Version 6.5, which is focused on enhancements for HPE Shadowbase ZDL, but also includes improvements in other areas. HPE Shadowbase ZDL will leverage the new audit flush record to remove the need for the metronome process, which allows for simplified configuration, reduced overhead, and improved application latency.
HPE Shadowbase for Other Servers, Version 6.4 future release focuses on support for the latest features to all of our supported platforms, as well as support for Database of Change (DOC) file data at rest encryption. User exit entry points will allow for encryption on the write into the DOC files, and decryption on the read from the DOC files.
Other planned enhancements include:
