Brenton Blue is proud to introduce our IT Project, known as Rumulus.
What is Rumulus
Rumulus uses this fundamental principle as its conceptual corner stone. Just as every element in nature is the sum of individual parts, so is information. A proton and a neutron consist of quarks. The same way, a word consists of letters. An idea is the sum of its parts. This poses the question: How can we use this natural phenomena to store and connect information? Rumulus is a database built on these fundamentals. If we can store the building elements we can recreate any information, we can successfully link the parts to form the sum.
Rumulus is not a computer program. It is a method. A concept to connect. The program underlying Rumulus is simply the glue.
Nature does not organise things in tables. Standard table based databases thus go against nature itself and therefore cannot evolve. When a plant’s leaves capture photons it uses them to break down some elements to build new elements. These are products required by its cells to grow and multiply. If the same process could be applied to information, knowledge and ideas can grow, multiply and evolve into new things, new ideas, new concepts, new information.
A tree under the right conditions can grow self-sustained. Each branch with its own leaves ultimately connected to the same trunk and root system. The trunk is the pipe through which energy flows to each individual cell in each individual leaf from the source via a network of roots. Rumulus mimics nature.
History of Rumulus
The Rumulus concept was born (as Q-mulus) seven years before the advent of NoSQL (No Relational) databases (2003). It was created to deal with profiling and massive amounts of data (Meta Data). More importantly, the ability to extract exact datasets without the need to run a query was important. The questions were asked: “What should a database look like that could simply “fetch” data if information on a known topic or individual was required, instead of searching for it? How can data be stored and linked in such a manner that by simply knowing the question, you automatically know the answer? How can data be retrieved at speeds previously unheard of?”
No such database or method existed. It had to be created. In order to do that, the concept of data needed to be re-visited and re-defined, after which various aspects like association protocol and storage methodology had to be developed.
- node distributed mirrored data storage;
- automatic non-administrative expansion (self-constructing);
- tiered databases (database inside of a database);
- seamless data sharing between databases;
- multi-tier security and cluster security;
- individual data can be open or closed, based on unique individual security levels;
- distributed processing (Analytical data processing can be performed on the client’s computer rather than the server, relieving server overhead) ;
- unlimited expansion across multiple servers;
- fully cloud based or isolated intranet;
The method by which Rumulus achieves these unique functionalities and structure is proprietary and held as a closely guarded secret, which to add an additional layer of security will continue this way. If this method should be disclosed, it would compromise data integrity and data security.
Rumulus lends itself to unique requirements and offers solutions where none other exists. It is, simply, revolutionary.
