Dino Technology, is a BRAND NEW application platform that uses a minimum of Windows and network bandwidth. No specific hardware needed like Raid controllers or dual Cpu’s servers. No complicated and expensive server software (sql , windows server, ….). SUPER Easy installation . Dino is a new way of life for IT- people ;)
In the whole world you have 2 kinds of networks. We don't take polling systems that interchange data on regular intervals into account.
In both networks the client always takes initiative, they will not automatically be informed of data changes. Automatic screen updates only take place if the programmer placed a ‘refresh’ button on the screen or if he programmed a timer that refreshes the screen at regular intervals. >> Screen updates will always consume a LOT of network bandwidth.
Both kinds of networks are difficult to update and upgrade when drivers change or with program updates. If your database structure has changes in between versions, you often have to run scripts and patches to update tables and fields and you will have to work on each pc in the network to get the job done.
Network troubles will crash the running software and take down your pc’s. You will be able to work again as soon as the problems are solved.
The systems above really need 100mbit to work properly.
Both systems rely on locking schemes that prevent concurrent changes to the same data. If badly programmed you end up with dead-locks. Only intensive optimization and testing will bring some speed on the clients.
Dino = Distributed Intelligent Network Objects
Dino is a platform where data is distributed and synchronized on all systems in your network. The data is everywhere and every change is transmitted as a very small compressed object via the tcp-ip protocol. All systems in your network are equal. One system is assigned to act as a dispatcher (server), kind of an agent that controls the synchonization of data in your network.
Needed bandwidth to operate is reduced to an absolute minimum. Only when a change to some data is done on a client , the change will be transmitted to the dispatcher and the dispatcher will send it to all connected clients. Offline clients will catch up the changes as soon as they become online again. An offline client CAN continue to work without interruption.
Dino hardly uses any disk access, because all the (most recently used) data is loaded into memory. Only modifications are written immediately to disk. Dino NEVER keeps any file open. When Dino needs to read or write data it opens the needed files , reads or writes and immediately closes the files again. This is done in milliseconds. Dino uses its own data storage structure, which is highly compressed .
In dino-systems the online clients are automatically updated when changes arrive. They will update their screen immediately if needed. All clients appear to be alive.
DINO will provide extreme performance on even standard Pc’s. Simple low bandwidth networks like 10 mbit networks, Networks over the internet or VPN’s and Wireless networks are NO longer a problem.
With the easy setup a dino client can be reconfigured to act as a dispatcher.
Dino doesn’t need any drivers at all. Not even for the ticketprinters or other devices. Everything is integrated in only 1 exe-file. Dino does NOT make changes to the registry. NO big installation programs need to run !
A typical Dino installation works like this :
>> within 10 minutes you are up and running !!
No IT knowledge needed, you only need to give a pc a unique name and ip-address . No need for domain controllers, or workgroups or file shares. If there is a TCP/IP connection, Dino will do rest.
Everyday, during automatic maintenance, backups are created, files are being compressed and prepared for a new day. Version updates are being pushed by the dino server towards the clients. Just install a more recent zipped exe in a specific folder -> choose the moment of update (now or during maintenance) and the dino server will tell all of its clients there is a more recent version and the place from which to download it. (the more recent version can even be installed on external FTP servers with more upload facilities)
Interfacing with other applications such as hotelreservations, stock, sports, time registration, credit control,… are within our realisations
