NonStop Insider

Issue 2.7 (April) Editorial


There are several articles you will find interesting in this issue of the NonStop Insider.

You will read about the transformation from a single NonStop system to heterogeneous deployments of systems to hybrid systems, including private and public clouds. You will see articles from companies moving data and files between systems – a must these days as data is becoming a highly valued resource and NonStop produces a lot of data. Also, look for a couple of items on virtualization as the NonStop community becomes more aware of the impact virtualization may have on the way they will be viewing NonStop in the future.

Then of course you will read about upcoming RUG events as the NonStop community continues to support its regional events. If as yet you haven’t seen Jimmy T at a RUG then you will have your chance this June when N2TUG holds its event in Dallas – look for more about that in the coming weeks.

What is great for our NonStop community is that we have quite a few channels, publications, discussion groups as well as face-to-face meetings where the lively conversations are happening.

The social media wrap-up points out that, “For the NonStop community, it is good to see how effective a communications vehicle the digital form of the community’s publication, The Connection, has become. I keep copies of each issue of The Connection as it arrives in the mail but for the most part, as soon as I see the digital version announced, I turn to the Connect Community web site to check it out. The current issue was a particularly good one and the article that really caught my attention was that authored by HPE NonStop Product Manager, Prashanth Kamath U, ‘HPE NonStop takes new strides in its journey through the cloud.’ ” Read the wrap-up to find out more!

The column written jointly by Keith Moore and Just Simonds of HPE looks at potential opportunities for use of blockchain as implemented on NonStop. If, like me, you like diamonds there is a very interesting example included in the column that may have you thinking about other similar situations that should benefit from blockchain. It’s still very early days for NonStop and blockchain but it wouldn’t be surprising to hear more of what HPE plans to do with this technology in the near future – perhaps, it is worth attending HPE Discover in June to  find out more!
