“Without Time Machine the process was inefficient, required the involvement of multiple teams, took much too long to administer a simple date and time change and we were limited to 2 or 3 databases per system. Now we run more databases on the same number of servers with more testing cycles and the entire process is easier to administer, freeing up everyone’s time.” *

“Without Time Machine, we simply would not have been able to accomplish this testing or training as it would have been way too much work and the wrong dates would have been seen in the program. Microsoft’s Active Directory essentially prohibits us from being able to move the system clock forward or back from real-time. Time Machine provided us the ability to get this done.” *

“We can accelerate a months’ worth of processing in a week, or years’ worth of processing in a matter of months or however long is needed to test month end output, reports and year end output and reports. We can also clear out data, reload and retest if necessary. The flexibility is very helpful given the importance of validating that the system is working properly and prevents post go-live production issues.”

“We went with Time Machine [to solve issue with time shift testing scripts] and it has been working very well for us. We have the ability to change the date/time across all the components specific to an environment. Executing time/shifts, troubleshooting issues, deployments etc. has been very smooth. We are currently using Time Machine in three Test Environments and One Development Environment, and are very happy with the current setup." *

"The Tape-out Operations group at Xilinx has been using Solution-Soft's MEBES and GDSII compression tools for several years. With the read and write capability of compressed files now integrated with Synopsys' CATS fracture software, this solution eases our manufacturing preparation burden. Now that we don't have to uncompress files, especially the large MEBES files, we gain a great convenience and a considerable productivity enhancement, as well as save additional investments into infrastructure like file storage servers. Other advantages are faster transfer time of files to our foundry partners overseas and faster restore times from the archive."

"SafeCapacity-Hotfile's ability to clearly identify the most active files on a system, combined with its "pass-through" file access relocation, will provide an enormous benefit to our customers.

"I have proven to myself that a SafeVelocity client to SafeVelocity server transfer is faster than standard FTP and does not require additional compress/decompress time at both ends as would be necessary when transmitting GZIP data. That is to say you don't compress anything beforehand; you let SV do it on the fly at both ends. A recent real world example from earlier in the week had a user spend 8-10 hours at his location doing a TAR/ GZIP on a 232 GB GDS data set, and then sending the resultant 100GB GZIP file using standard FTP at standard FTP throughput rates. The transfer would have taken about 25 hours (if it had completed) and would have been followed by another number of hours at the receiving end for the required UNZIP/ UNTAR operations. SafeVelocity transferred the entire 232 GB of original uncompressed GDS files in 20 hours (achieving effective throughput rates beyond those of the underlying physical circuit) and restarted itself four times during that period because of network issues.”
