InterSystems Caché fully support MultiValue as a development platform. You can use your MultiValue (MV) skills and leverage existing MultiValue code as you create applications with rich web interfaces, advanced security and more.
Users and devices connecting to Caché or Ensemble must be authenticated to insure they are who they say they are. The Management Portal can be used to allow a variety of authentication methods as well as configure them for connectivity services.
Having set up resources and roles, users can be created and assigned to their appropriate roles. The roles for a given user define what assets they have access to and what their permissions are for those assets.
Once a user is authenticated, they are then authorized to access various assets. These assets are databases, connection services, system functions and user applications. Resources and roles are assigned to assets and users for authorization.
Resource based services control user access to Caché. Basic services control communication between Caché servers. Enabling these services permits appropriate communication and connection. Assign users to appropriate resources to allow connection.
System administration and management functions for Caché and Ensemble are available via the web based Management Portal. This video presents an introduction to the options available in the Management Portal.
Web, client and privileged routines can escalate the roles of a user once they are authenticated and assigned their initial authorization. This minimizes initial privileges and gives the application complete control over who can use it.
InterSystems has been dealing with big data in various forms for years. The multidimensional data structures enable enterprises to handle big data without completely re-architecting their database or giving up SQL data access.
There are two types of journaling built into Caché and Ensemble to help insure data integrity. The Write Image Journal and database Journaling protect the integrity of your data from both a Caché and application perspective.
In addition to resources, roles and users, SQL privileges can be assigned to users for the tables in a namespace. These privileges can be assigned to columns and rows in a table as well as their views and procedures.
