Time Machine® Now Available for Solaris x86
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Mar 18, 2011— SolutionSoft Systems Inc, (Solution-Soft) a leading provider of Intelligent Data Optimization (IDO) solutions is pleased to announce the general availability release of Time Machine for Solaris 10 x86 & Solaris 11 x86 operating systems.
“Solution-Soft has a long history of providing enterprise software for the Solaris operating system and with these latest releases we continue our support for Solaris customers” said Michael Morrison, Director of Business Development at Solution-Soft. “Solaris-x86 is an important platform for us not only because of its rich capabilities and continuing adaption into the enterprise, but also because it is one of the two operating systems that are used in an Oracle Exadata Database 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.
Oracle Solaris 11 Express raises the bar on the functionality introduced in Oracle Solaris 10, continuing Oracle's leadership for providing the best choice for mission critical operating system enterprise environments. With new features such as network based package management tools to greatly decrease planned system downtime and provide for a complete safe system upgrade, built-in network virtualization and delegated administration for an unprecedented level of flexibility for application consolidation, and continued leadership for providing the highest levels of security, Oracle Solaris 11 Express is the most exciting release of the Oracle Solaris platform to date.
About Time Machine
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 is an essential date and time simulation tool for use in application migration and integration or regression testing. The software facilitates any type of time or date-sensitive development, 'effective dating' testing, and training that would otherwise require altering your system clock. With Time Machine you can: Set a users’ virtual clock ahead to 5 a.m. to train users on warehouse stock and order processing; Test month-end processes before the end of the month; Provide users with a “local time zone” view of applications; Re-run failed production jobs and reports; slow down or speed up time for an application to re-play a sequence of events in a time-frame that is more conductive to either training or simulation.
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.
