PRLog - Feb. 14, 2011 - PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. -- Idealease Inc. of North America, a premier truck rental and leasing company with locations throughout North America has decided to adopt Mertech’s Flex2SQL™ solution to migrate and run their existing DataFlex-based applications with Microsoft SQL Server. Mertech’s Flex2SQL for MS SQL Server middleware allows companies to modernize their legacy applications by switching to a new database without investing in expensive re-engineering projects.
The Flex2SQL product bundle is comprised of a GUI migration tool that takes existing DataFlex database and migrates them to SQL Server. The second component of the Flex2SQL bundle is the database driver DLL or shared-object, which works with the DataFlex runtime and handles all client/server connection and database operations.
According to Riaz Merchant, CEO of Mertech Data Systems, “One of the key features of Mertech’s Flex2SQL is the ability to recover from connection glitches and prompting user to retry their transaction. This combined with support for SQL Server mirroring and failover support will provide Idealease with high-availability environment for their affiliates.
For companies and independent software vendors looking to run their DataFlex-based applications with MS SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL or PostgreSQL, Mertech offers a fully-functional 30 day trial license for all their products.
