Write modules
in modern languages

RTG lets you augment your COBOL applications using modern languages like Java, JSON, and Python. Let your devs work in the language they know best.

Build upon your COBOL investments

You’ve invested decades into your COBOL applications. Don’t throw away that hard work. RTG builds on top of that foundation—combining the robust batch processing of classic COBOL with modern APIs.

No Source Code Modification
Having trouble finding COBOL devs to add new functionality? FairCom RTG can help. As a standard file handler, RTG supports your existing runtimes, allowing modern APIs to interact with existing COBOL data.
Real-Time SQL Access
Business intelligence can be the difference between stagnation and leading the market. Quickly and easily query COBOL data for reporting and analytics (without data normalization!).
Scalability & Availability
Vertically scale to thousands of users and hundreds of thousands of tables. Horizontally scale with replication for reporting, failover, and availability.
Eliminate Data Corruption
RTG keeps your data safe with ACID-compliant transactions when you need them. And with hot backups and automatic recovery after system failures, you’ll never have to rebuild files manually again.
Secure Your Data
Protect your COBOL data, whether at rest or in flight, with AES encryption and OpenSSL. Industry-standard X.509 certificate pairs keep your authentication credentials safe, protecting command-line utility operations.
Set It, Forget It
Minimal DBA requirements mean RTG practically runs itself—giving you more time to focus on your business. Add in its high-availability replication and disaster recovery to keep your work minimal even after disruptions.

DB Notify
RTG allows change data capture with DB Notify. Publish changes as JSON messages that can be pushed into any system you need.
Partitioned Files
Partitioning adds a number of benefits to your applications. Quickly purge or archive data ranges at a large scale.
Keep data accessible and resilient with replication. RTG’s replication solutions give you high availability, disaster recovery, and horizontal scalability.
Hot Backups
Ensure uninterrupted operations with hot backups. Schedule backups in advance and always have a backup copy available for testing, QA, and data recovery.
Database Quiesce for SAN Snapshots
Temporarily suspend server operations to perform system maintenance, such as SAN snapshots, without taking your application offline. SAN snapshots can quickly be brought online when needed for data recovery.
