SANTA CLARA, Ca. Jan 17, 2014— SolutionSoft Systems Inc, a leading provider of Intelligent Data Optimization (IDO) solutions is pleased to announce the release of Time Machine for AIX 7.1 TL3, IBM’s latest UNIX operating system.
The AIX operating system (OS) running on IBM systems designed with Power Architecture® technology has proven scalability, advanced virtualization, security, manageability and reliability features. AIX is the only operating system that leverages decades of IBM technology innovation designed to provide the highest level of performance and reliability of any UNIX operating system.
Time Machine is a patent-pending software application designed to facilitate 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 desired 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 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.
“Most of our IBM AIX customers that run applications in this high end environment need a quick solution for their application testing. As IBM comes out with new fixed releases, sometimes Time Machine must be enhanced to support it. We are happy to do so quickly to support our world-wide IBM AIX customers.” said Raymond Watson, Director of Business Development at Solution-Soft. “Many AIX customers are using Time Machine for their mission critical applications, particularly in the banking, insurance, utility and government industries.”
