Time Machine® now available for AIX 6.1

Solution-Soft’s latest release allows users of AIX to continue effective date & time testing.

SANTA CLARA, Calif., January 09, 2009 — SolutionSoft Systems Inc, a leading provider of Intelligent Data Optimization (IDO) solutions officially released Time Machine for IBM's latest UNIX® platform, AIX Version 6.1 on Power Systems including System p & System i. 

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.  This 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.  With this ability 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 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. 

“This latest version of Time Machine from Solution-Soft provides a contiguous product release and demonstrates our dedicated support for IBM's AIX line.” said Michael Morrison, Director of business development as Solution-Soft.  "We have numerous customers around the globe who rely on IBM's UNIX platform to meet their critical needs & who in-turn rely on our products to ensure that as the move their existing software applications to newer operating systems or develop new processes, that the date & time logic in their applications are guaranteed to behave correctly.  Time Machine provides the only tool for effective date testing in UNIX, Linux, and Windows and as such delivers the ability to test & deploy new applications with a certainty that they will behave as expected into the future.
