DBMS Linter BASTION Tested on the Russian Server “Rikor EcoServer”
RELEX and Rikor have finished testing the Russian DBMS Linter on the domestic hardware platform Rikor EcoServer.
The first phase of the project was to adapt Linter BASTION, the secure DBMS Linter version, to working on Rikor EcoServer. As a result, the RELEX team built DBMS Linter distributions for the most popular Russian operating systems based on the Linux kernel, and for OS Ubuntu 12.04. The next step was testing DBMS Linter BASTION on the Rikor EcoServer platform, including functional and workload tests. At the final stage, the domestic platform performance was tested using the standard RELEX test sets as well as an OLTP test application modeling the work of an automated banking system.
"Together with Rikor, we succeeded in creating a domestic hardware and software complex including a data storage server. DBMS Linter BASTION on the Rikor EcoServer platform demonstrated high performance and fault-tolerance, – noted Vitaly Maximov, Vice-President of RELEX. – Based on the testing results, RELEX and Rikor recommend the jointly created solution for industrial use".
"Modern database management systems used in big public and private companies make high standards for DBMSs, – said Oleg Kuznetsov, Development Manager of Rikor. – Our servers are fully designed and manufactured in Russia, at our own production site, Rikor plant in the Nizhny Novgorod region. They meet the high standards imposed by the modern DBMS, and our cooperation with RELEX proves it".
Rikor EcoServer represents a new class of servers produced in Russia. EcoServer uses the processor Marvell ARMADA® XP Highly Integrated Multi-Core ARMv7. The solution is designed for DBMSs (cluster, distributes and classic), parallel computation, electronic document management, e-commerce, distributed databases and virtual work places. The main advantage of EcoServer is its low cost of ownership. Rikor servers are also higher reliable, partly due to the “hot” blade replacement mechanism.
