Spider Datacenter version 12.2 is available

Release Date: 2019-11-26

A new update of Spider Datacenter has been released. This includes the following items:

  • Spider Oracle Database Suite
  • Spider Datacenter Module (Appliance)
  • Columbus Datacenter Inventory (Linux/Unix)

All components can be downloaded from our Product and License Center.

To be notified of these kinds of product updates, please ensure that you have subscribed to the Spider Release Blog.


Due to Oracle Reverification 2019, which we passed in early August 2019, relevant changes have been made to the Oracle-related parts of the product.

The second major change improves global database write performance. For this, the import was parallelized and the write latencies were reduced by the introduction of table partitioning. As a further result, the imports for systems, VMware data, and databases as well as the license usage comparison were divided into separate steps.

The third major enhancement is the extension of the Spider interface with many additional details and decision details on the following areas:

  • Transfer license usage from one cluster node to all others
  • Transfer license usage from PRIMARY databases to standby instances
  • Oracle Hard Partitioning decisions

For a complete reference of the changes and bug fixes, please read the ChangeLog document.
