More than happy to share the release of NX3 Core 3.8.0 with you!
This release features the following improvements:
- Support for PostgresSQL
- Two new Document Storages (AWS S3 and WebDAV)
(Pre-)Support for PostgresSQL
“PostgreSQL: The World’s Most Advanced Open Source Relational Database.
PostgreSQL is a powerful, open source object-relational database system with over 30 years of active development that has earned it a strong reputation for reliability, feature robustness, and performance.” [https://www.postgresql.org/]
During the last months we have made the experience that many of our new customers already use PostgresSQL in their existing system landscape. Existing customers are also thinking about a migration to PostgreSQL to save high license costs.
Based on this feedback, the NX3 team has been working on basic supporting PostgreSQL as a database in addition to Oracle and MySql or Maria DB. Within the next releases we will work on further optimizations for full supporting PostgreSQL.
Two new Document Storages
NX3 stores our customers’ documents where they need them. Up to now, a CMIS interface was available for integration into the existing system landscape. Furthermore the possibility to store the documents on the filesystem exists.
With this release, two further storage options have been added to enable the storage of documents in the cloud and expand support of integration into existing system landscapes.
“Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) is an object storage service that provides industry-leading scalability, data availability, security and performance” [https://aws.amazon.com/de/s3/] .
When hosting NX3 on AWS, AWS S3 offers the possibility to use a service that ensures the permanent availability of your data. AWS S3 offers an availability of 99,999999999 percent1 . Therefore the data are transmitted over at least three different availability zones are redundantly stored. This means that no more data is lost.
WebDAV (Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning) is a network protocol for delivering files over the Internet.
In addition to CMIS, WebDAV offers a further possibility for easy integration into existing document management systems of our customers.
Furthermore, WebDAV offers the possibility to use cloud services that support this protocol.
