Tmax, a leading global enterprise software solutions company, successfully deployed the Tibero database management system at Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM)’s Disaster Recovery (DR) site.
The DR project is powered and supported by Tmax’s Tibero relational database management system (RDBMS) which is highly compatible with UiTM’s current production database and both heterogeneous database systems synchronize in real-time via Change Data Capture (CDC) replication technology. Tibero allowed economical use of UiTM’s current system resources whilst giving enhanced performances, making it a great replacement for legacy systems.
UiTM, as the largest comprehensive university in Malaysia, faced challenges in seeking an adaptable, accessible, and synchronous solution for its DR database. One of its main concerns is its current huge production database that requires a common homogenous environment, was the only initial option for support to its DR database. To adopt different software, the solution needs to be highly compatible, high performance and provides real-time data synchronization to ensure data accuracy and consistency.
Tibero meets these demands ideally as it reduced UiTM’s total cost by 70 per cent of traditional DR configuration on Capex (license cost) and Opex (maintenance cost), without compromising the performance, productivity, and reliability. UiTM will also be able to fully utilize the features that are included in Tibero at no additional cost. Ultimately, UiTM can increase its data protection environment at a minimal cost.
Tibero also has the capability of running mission-critical workloads with high performance and includes enterprise-class database features such as Tibero Active Cluster (TAC), Tibero Standby Cluster (TSC) and Tibero Active Storage (TAS). Tibero is therefore the preferred database for this project, as it is easy to navigate, provides application compatibility without modification, and is multi- threaded to maximize performance.
Tmax has recently launched Tibero 7 in the market with new enhanced functions. A variety of innovative features have been added to reflect market demand with new application development methods. The newly added functions include TSC for high availability and operation management, ‘In-memory Column Store’ for high-performance data analysis, and ‘Fine Grained Auditing’ to take charge of access control and records.
According to the Assistant Vice Chancellor (Infostructure) of UiTM, Associate Professor Ir. Dr. Juliana Johari (Pic below), the implementation of Tibero improves the image of the university and further accelerates its digital transformation through the enhancement of the quality of the IT service provided.
Dr. Juliana said, “UiTM is highly satisfied with the completion of this project as the cost-effective disaster recovery database solution was a success in which the migration to Tibero from the
university’s existing core database systems had been seamless with support from Tmax and partner as all the data are synced in real-time in the heterogeneous database environment.”
Managing Director of SEA-ANZ of Tmax Singapore Pte Ltd, Mr David Kim (Pic below) said that the project is a milestone for Tibero in line with best practices in the education market across countries.
He further added, “The ASEAN market, including Malaysia, is very important for Tmax’s business globally. We are very happy to provide great solutions to UiTM helping them resolve the challenges they encountered in IT systems.”
