Gravic Announces New Video on HPE Shadowbase Compare and Repair Software for Data Validation




Gravic Apr 21 -1

HPE Shadowbase Compare software validates and verifies that the source and target databases match. The comparison can be accomplished while the application is actively running, and in an online business continuity replication configuration. It can prove data consistency to key stakeholders and to help satisfy regulatory and audit compliance requirements. It is designed for comparing like-to-like datasets, such as HPE NonStop to HPE NonStop sources and targets (Enscribe-to-Enscribe or SQL-to-SQL), and works across TCP/IP or Expand connectivity.

The HPE Shadowbase Repair function can correct discrepancies found in the SQL/MP or SQL/MX tables, including fixing extra or missing data, or repairing data in both that does not match. The user defines either the source or target table as the correct value to ensure that the data in both tables match. Please enjoy our video!

This case study is just one example of how a company can take advantage of a harsh situation similar to the pandemic. The pandemic has shown how quickly things can go wrong, and brought contingency, backup, and disaster recovery planning to the forefront of IT’s concerns. It has also shown that

HPE NonStop Servers are an exemplification of globalization, and continue to flourish as countries grow and international business increases.
