Unicage platform

Unicage is a database development environment using Linux, text files and shell scripting to build information systems capable of handling enormous datasets in an affordable, quick and flexible way. Unicage combines a high-performance database back-end with a simple Linux shell-based programming front-end. The database engine has been optimized for “Big Data” sized datasets and has been benchmarked on databases as large as 20 billion records and still returned text search results in 0.227 seconds (see “benchmarks”). Despite its Big Data performance, Unicage does not require resource-heavy middleware, Java applications or SQL programming in order to create functional software. All coding is done in simple but powerful Linux shell scripting language using Unicage’s custom shell. This massively increases performance while significantly reducing training requirements for developers and overall time-to-market. Scripts can be generated on-the-fly for ad-hoc analysis needs in a matter of minutes.

From an enterprise risk perspective, pre-packaged software has been consistently associated with IT staffing challenges, high costs and long cycles of implementation. Actionable reporting becomes a big problem in fast-paced competetive business environments where customization is key.

Unicage is the framework that enables companies to take back control and deliver complex integrations and customizations in an economical value driven manner.

Unicage Advantages

Low Cost to Run / Easy to Program

  • Data is kept in plain text, programming in shell script, no middleware required
  • No forklift upgrades (data and software remain same when HW/OS change)

Fast to Development / Fast to Process

  • Programs are very short
  • One engineer can design, develop and operate
  • Stripped out unnecessary features to maximize hardware performance

Flexible /Transparent

  • Programming is simple and easy to customize (5-10x less code and faster time than Cobol or Java)
  • Easy access to different data sources (ERPs, DBs, flat text files, …)
  • Keep data in organized and structured Unicage format
