Solid Releases New Version of Carrier-Grade Platform

Solid Information Technology Corp. released a new version of its automatic data management platform. Version 4.2 is designed for use by service providers as a hot standby to support carrier-grade, highly available applications.

Company officials say they have augmented the self-managing aspects of its platform to facilitate detecting and modifying server behavior at run time.

Solid enhanced its asynchronous data replication facility to allow the traffic between masters and replicas to be compressed. Client/server traffic can be compressed, reducing the platform's consumption of bandwidth"which reduces transaction times and enhances application throughput.
