Issue 6.1 Editorial


NonStopTBC21 just ended and the opinion expressed in the comforte’s article was shared by most: “Three days packed with keynotes, presentations, panel discussions, and demos with about 1,000 attendees! A big Thank you goes to the Connect team and the HPE NonStop product management team, and anyone else who helped making this event successful!”

I couldn’t help but wonder – if the virtual event is being viewed to be so great why on earth would anyone want to go back to in person experience? More costly, fewer participants?

So I want to say heck, no! Let’s get together in 2022, in person! Maybe not over 1000 of us, but those who will make it will be sure happy to see familiar faces! Connect and HPE did a fantastic job, true, but it is time to go back to normal! OK, Could there be a middle ground perhaps, with some form of hybrid event?

In the ETI article you will find a sentence that expresses all NonStopTBC21 participants sentiment: “With as much attention as HPE is gaining in the press it was important for us to understand the way in which GreenLake and the NonStop team cooperated and of the value NonStop participation in the GreenLake program would bring to our enterprise customers.”

Indeed, we were promised to hear more about the GreenLake program and we were not disappointed!

In the article from Pyalla Technologies, LLC., you will read what in the GreenLake program is unique and of interest to our NonStop community: Let’s hear from Keith Moore, Distinguished Technologist at HPE:

“Clearly, HPE GreenLake enablement for NonStop is unique when compared to the rest of the HPE GreenLake enablement. NonStop has the ability to deliver detailed Opex usage data for maximum granularity in how customers use their NonStop services.”

“At this year’s Technical Bootcamp I made a concerted effort to mingle in the chat areas – especially in the topics and talks that mapped to my interests (Dev/Ops, operating systems and VMs, security, computer languages, computer history, etc. ) I am hoping that some participants got to ‘meet,’ and, in a way, interact closer with me than they might have if I was just a talking head at the front of the room.

“My sincere hope is that some of the new people I met online will contact me directly for more conversations about where they need NonStop software to morph in the coming years. 

“GreenLake may have been the star, but looking at how this was affecting the NonStop user community was never far from my mind.”

In Richard Buckle’s article “Data; it lives and it grows – with NonStop SQL, data truly has found a home.” which talks about an article he wrote for the recent edition of Connect magazine. You may find a little comic relief when he writes about the character Data in Star Trek: “Perhaps the favorite character of my daughter’s, Lisa, it was hard to ignore the processing capabilities of this humanoid robot. This issue of The Connection was centered on the topic of data so what better way to introduce an article than with a reference to Lieutenant Commander Data”.

Read the article to see why Lieutenant Commander Data is relevant to NonStop.

NTI article talks about the company’s new programs and its new Website:To better inform the NonStop community of the breadth of capability of DRNet®/Unified for HPE Customers, NTI has accomplished an impressive replacement of our website. This revised web site features modern capabilities and provides comprehensive solution content blending proven capabilities of  NTI and TANDsoft solutions previously publicized as part of the ‘DRNet®/Unified for HPE Customers’ messaging.

I hope you will find this October 2021 issue informative and entertaining!
