OnGroup Sees Success with MVON4 Release

OnGroup has released MVON4, a platform update that augments MV applications with the ability to horizontally scale implementations of MultiValue.

MVON4 gives MultiValue developers the tools to write software in MV, transpile to C# and run it in the .NET Common Language Runtime.

Because MVON4 uses .NET as the MultiValue run machine (p-machine) and SQL Server as the DBMS for MultiValue applications, it provides a wealth of functionality that other MV platforms lack, according to the vendor.

 This capability allows MVON4 users to define primary, secondary, and tertiary lock servers and to have as many nodes as required in the MVON4 Cluster. Nodes can be added and removed in real time, while each node can be configured with different RAM, disk and processors, and Windows and Linux Nodes can be mixed in a single cluster.

MVON4 and other ONware products are database independent and can use multiple types of databases concurrently, including SQL (e.g. SQL Server, Oracle), NoSQL (e.g. MongDB, Couchbase). Currently operational with ONware are SQL Server, and MV databases (e.g. UniVerse, UniData, D3, jBase and Open QM).

With the continuing increase in data breaches and resultant regulations to keep them at bay, ONgroup elected to utilize Microsoft’s solid industry platforms to our benefit as their organization continues to invest in the widely respected security of its .NET run machine, as well as their SQL Server DBMS.

With MVON4 Tools, one can run existing MultiValue applications in .NET with SQL Server and similarly run SB+ applications in .NET with the MVON4 NetBuilder SB+ emulator.

Because Python, JavaScript and TyoeScript interpreters are managed code (i.e. CL-compliant), such languages can be used and mixed with MV BASIC and C#, even in single programs.

There is no need for interprocess nor client/server communication because the language execute in the same process. Python, JavaScript and TyoeScript and MV BASIC interact fluidly. Call a subroutine written in Python, JavaScript or TyoeScript from BASIC code and it all just runs in .NET.
