Term Meaning
Conventional Data Architecture

Conventional table-per-object database schemas fix the data structure in tables, columns (fields) and relationships of the core schema (database architecture). To change the data structure the database application schema must be changed, requiring corresponding service and UI development, unit testing and server roll-outs.

The table-per-object relational database architecture has been universally adopted as an IT foundation and deeply embedded in the software development curriculum.

A critical effect of this architecture is that it embeds the type, function and name of data in its foundations. This results in a unique custom schema for every application and enterprise. For every unique schema unique custom software and user interface code must be developed to deliver services (search, view, edit, report etc). If the schema changes, corresponding code MUST be developed to integrate the change.

This contrasts sharply with the DNA architecture.

DNA
Data Neutral Architecture

Biologic DNA has a well known function of information storage.

The simplicity of biologic DNA data storage structure makes it Data Neutral, that is, the specific type or function of data stored is not defined by or restricted to its storage structure.

While digital databases are very different from biologic DNA, Portalz Data Neutral Architecture exhibits the same simplicity and data neutrality as biologic DNA.

ERAD
Extreme Rapid Application Development

RAD applies to a range of application development methodologies to improve performance of development teams and response to client requirements.

Portalz DNA enables ERAD (Extreme RAD) by way of application configuration that can be performed by users without coding experience. ERAD delivers a vast range of customisations, functions and services that conventionally require database administrators and analysts, software developers, UI developers, JavaScript programmers and more.

Features and services configured with ERAD are instantly visible and do not require conventional unit testing and production roll-outs.

Quantum Bunker™ The name of the Quantum Proof data security technologies developed by Portalz.
Quantum Computer

The current state of Quantum Computing may be compared to the rapid transition of conventional computers in the 1970s, a transition from relays and valves to transistors and integrated circuits.

Early computers used large air-conditioned rooms with rows of racks and equipment, reel-to-reel tapes, cathode ray terminals, dot matrix printers and teams of specialists. Suddenly personal computers arrived that would fit on your desk. Affordable and incredibly powerful, by the then standards, anyone could now own and operate a computer.

We are now shifting from large refrigerated Google Quantum Computers to Quantum Computer Integrated Circuits that will shortly make Quantum Computing affordable and accessible.

While Quantum Computers enable a broad range of AI and supercomputing power, they also undermine all encryption used to secure information systems today.

Quantum Proof

The term we use to describe data transformation that cannot be reassembled by Quantum or conventional computers.

Conventional encrypted data still contains the payload, albeit scrambled, allowing the payload to be reassembled. Reassembly may be by conventional brute-force key trial, decryption formula attacks or by infinite permutation tests with a Quantum Computer.

Quantum Computers enable infinite permutation tests in seconds, minutes or hours, a very short time span compared to the hundreds of years of computing power required by conventional or super computers. Quantum Computers break the encryption - decryption asymmetry, the vast difference in time required by conventional computers between encryption and brute-force decryption.

Quantum Bunker technologies create a fraqBlock that no longer contains the payload, and so cannot be reassembled by any type of computer, making it Quantum Proof.

Trust Platform

The term we use to describe enterprise platforms that can deliver data integrity trust guarantees.

As enterprise platforms based on conventional database foundations lack trust, architects have sought to integrate blockchain immutability to deliver data integrity and trust guarantees. This comes with significant cost and risk.

DNA Trust is a solution that delivers data integrity and trust guarantees without decentralised blockchain.

fraq

The Portalz quantum computer proof data transformation process.

A new term, fraq was coined as a name to distinguish from crypt and encrypt.

The process and effect of enfraqing is entirely different to conventional encryption, so we coined the term to clearly set them apart.

enfraq The Portalz process of transforming a data payload to a fraqBlock.
defraq The Portalz process of retrieving data from a fraqBlock.
fraqKey A key or password that alters the transformation of a data payload to a fraqBlock.
fraqDepth The depth of transformation of a data payload to a fraqBlock.
fraqBlock

The digital block produced by enfraqing a data payload.

The fraqBlock no longer contains the payload.

The fraqBlock is impossible to brute-force crack.

It is impossible to derive the payload from the fraqBlock alone.
