SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 16, 2014— SolutionSoft Systems Inc, a leading provider of Intelligent Data Optimization (IDO) solutions is pleased to announce Time Machine’s support for Ubuntu Linux 12.04.
“While Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin), Ubuntu’s sixteenth release and its fourth Long Term Support (LTS) release is not their latest, we see some traction for Time Machine to support this platform from our install base. As a customer-focused company, we were able to respond quickly to a customer who had a critical project deployed to this platform” said Raymond Watson, Director of Business Development at Solution-Soft. “The customer was thrilled we were able to develop a special build of Time Machine that is compatible with Ubuntu 12.04 in just three days. There are literally hundreds of different Linux variations and versions; SolutionSoft is proud of its ability to port Time Machine to any variation of Linux in a short time to fit customer needs. Recent examples include Suse 8 and challenging zlinux on IBM mainframe!”
About Time Machine
Time Machine is a patent-pending software solution designed to enable testing and simulation of specified system dates and times without modifying or resetting the system clock. The software allows defined applications and users to run under any defined future date, past date or time zone using a virtual clock while the underlying system time remains unchanged. And with the most recent feature added to Time Machine, users can now specify variable speed clocks. This addition allows modifications to virtual clocks to run from 1000 times slower or faster than a real clock. This addition allows modifications to virtual clocks to run from 1000 times slower than a real clock up-to 1000 times faster. With variable speed clocks many interesting simulations can be easily created. For instance using a fast clock, a utility company’s network operations center can replay in minutes the recorded events from a black-out event that normally transpired over the course of days. Or, by implementing a slow clock a financial services firm can create a delay in batch processing while data is loaded into the system.
With all these abilities Time Machine proves itself as a powerful tool for performing “what-if” testing on systems resources and programs. Time Machine’s unique solution for user-based time morphing for UNIX, Linux and Windows Servers allows test environments to simultaneously run up to 20,000 individually defined virtual clocks at once and supports both group and user level time offsets.
When initiating an ERP migration, testing new additions to CRM, performing legacy migration, or integrating new modules to an existing software infrastructure, there are specific logic elements of the project that will need to be thoroughly tested for all conceivable forward date & time values to guarantee that the system will operate as expected in the future. This involves running the applications with actual data through an extensive range of past, present and future dates, and scrutinizing the results for any functional inconsistencies
Time Machine has been has been field proven as an effective tool for comprehensive testing of SAP, LDAP & Kerberos integration (Active Directory Testing), Legacy migrations, Oracle (Siebel or PeopleSoft) roll-outs, Tibco, J2EE applications in WebSphere, Windows .NET applications, and even web-based AJAX programs.
