Rocket Revs iCluster HA Tool
October 29, 2013 Alex Woodie
iCluster 7.1 Interim Fix 3 (IF3) adds support for SQL functions and procedures and gives iCluster customers the capability to replicate those SQL creations using the HA software. It has added two new object specifiers–*SQLFUNC and *SQLPROC–to support this capability, which was also enabled with its TR1 release, the company says.
The move was made primarily in response to Rocket customers who also use its Aldon LifeCycle Manager for i (LMi) change management software, the company explains in its Rocket Fuel blog. “But any shop can also replicate SQL Functions and Procedures including any changes to these objects if you use the correct object specifiers,” the company says in its blog.
Rocket bought Aldon in 2011, in the midst of a string of IBM i-related acquisitions for the Waltham, Massachusetts, company, which also included Seagull Software. Rocket’s last acquisition (or at least any the privately held company has publicly disclosed) was the purchase of the Shadow mainframe integration tool from Progress Software in October 2012.
