DATABridge version 5.2


This technical note lists system requirements and features introduced in DATABridge 5.2 (released September 2010).


New Features

  • Audit Mirroring for real-time data recovery

The DATABridge Audit Mirroring component can aid in disaster recovery by mirroring audit files in the background to a Windows platform or secondary MCP, and minimize the time it takes for data recovery. You now have the ability to recover your data in near real-time, resulting in a fast response point objective (RPO).

  • High Speed File Transfer to lower the use of mainframe resources

You can lower your costs with the DATABridge High Speed File Transfer component. It can significantly minimize the use of your mainframe resources when transferring files through DATABridge. High speed file transfer helps eliminate most MCP overhead to transfer text, printer, and data files.
