CoSort 9 Eases Large XML/LDIF Conversion, Manipulation, Protection

Melbourne, FL-based Innovative Routines International's (IRI) latest release of CoSort data manipulation software manipulating and migrating massive XML and LDIF (LDAP interchange format) files to and from other file formats.

While a popular interchange format, large XML files have not been practical for manipulation or conversion. Conversely, LDIF can hold large amounts of data, but many applications cannot import or process the file format. The new version, CoSort 9, runs on Unix, Linux and Windows convert, process, protect, or create large files in either format.

CoSort can process billions of rows of directory access protocol (DAP) data to help organizations join and analyze LDIF records in connection with other data formats and data warehousing activities.

“We work with 10-terabytes of data a day and could not pull this off successfully without CoSort,” said Ray Harrison, a principal engineer at communications service provider Comcast's data engineering and management integration group, in a prepared statement. “No other tool gives us this much speed and flexibility in processing or converting this volume of LDIF records.”

Additionally, CoSort can convert uniform XML files and legacy formats such as sequential (flat), Cobol, comma separated values and flat files. While many new customer-facing applications are driven by XML data, “Vast amounts of valuable data are still processed in legacy file formats,” said Don Purnhagen, a senior software engineer at IRI, in a prepared statement. “CoSort V9 bridges the gap between these disparate technologies, allowing their data to flow both ways.”
