Data drives business, but the increasing volume of data in today’s IT shops complicates maintaining the databases in which to store it all.
“Some of our customers have contacted us regarding a steady increase in data volumes,” confirms Allen Hartley, CEO of ProData. “They had questions as to what the maximum number of records DBU could handle. We have increased this to just over two billion records. This is only restricted by the largest value that a four-byte binary field in RPG-ILE could handle. We are looking at other possible ways to handle this in the future as well.”
