to Mimer SQL from Sybase or other DBMS solutions
The amount of work required to migrate an existing system to Mimer SQL can quite accurately be determined by using automated
analysis tools provided by Mimer Information Technology. The SQL-related code written in different SQL dialects can be converted
using conversion tools. Experts from Mimer Information Technology can also assist in converting the application and database so
that the transition to the new system, while improving performance, will go unnoticed by the users. This will reduce the migration
effort and make the transition to Mimer SQL very cost-effective.
SQL—a dependable relational DBMS for OpenVMS platforms
Mimer SQL is installed at tens of thousands of customer sites worldwide, especially at sites where performance and access are
the paramount requirements. Mimer SQL has been available for OpenVMS for more than 20 years—in the 1980s on VAX, in the 1990s
on AlphaServer systems, and now on Integrity servers.
Mimer SQL customers using HP OpenVMS systems include Scandinavia's largest telecommunications operator, TeliaSonera AB; the car
manufacturer, Volvo Cars; the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute; and the National Blood Service, which handles all
blood donations in England.
Low total cost of ownership
According to Mimer SQL customers, compared to other large databases, running costs can be cut by more than 50 percent because
Mimer SQL includes a built-in database administrator (DBA). Mimer SQL also costs less to purchase, requires less hardware, and is
easier to develop because it conforms to the SQL standard.
Install and forget
Application developers can install Mimer SQL and have it up and running in a matter of minutes. And, thanks to Mimer SQL's open
architecture, developers can continue to use their favorite development tools. When the final product is ready for installation,
Mimer SQL is completely hidden to users (a black-box solution). Mimer SQL's built-in DBA automates database administration. This
means that the database system requires no surveillance when in production; maintenance and troubleshooting are handled
you get is more than what you see
A Mimer SQL distribution for Alpha OpenVMS, including all documentation, uses only 10 MB. Despite its small footprint, Mimer SQL
is the most complete SQL database management system in the world and includes 100 percent support for the Transitional SQL-92
standard. So far, Mimer SQL is the first and only database management system that fully supports this standard. With the extended
multilanguage support in Mimer SQL (Unicode 4.0), multilingual applications have a unique opportunity to handle many different
languages simultaneously in one single application.
