How quickly can you bring up critical reports on your DR system?
SunTUG saw attendance approach record numbers and giving TIC Software ample opportunity to meet with customers and prospects. It was a time too to hear more of the plans that the HPE NonStop team has for the NonStop product line, even as it was a time to enjoy Tampa’s warmth.
“We saw accelerated interest in virtualization of the NonStop, as users view it as a positive strategic direction for the platform to be recognized and accepted as an enterprise standard. Users are eager to learn more about application and data integration with other platforms (like Linux) and options in leveraging open source solutions,” said Phil Ly, TIC Software President. “There is continued discussion on the need to promote ‘NonStop literacy’ to a new and younger IT team as many experienced NonStop knowledge workers are near retirement age. We at TIC are reaching out to the Nonstop community including Connect to promote more awareness of this growing need and to share ideas and solutions through discussion forums with users, partners and HPE.”
It was just a few days ago that we added to our TIC Talk Blog the post, How quickly can you bring up critical reports on your DR system? When it comes to NonStop customers and their approach to Disaster Recovery plans their goal is to be able to:
“Resume business operation as quickly as possible with minimum interruption. The main focus of the daily operation plan is to ensure applications and third-party packages are up-to-date on the DR system, and that the database and files are synchronized regularly from Production to DR.”
But what about spooler jobs?
“Many NonStop installations have hundreds, and maybe even thousands, of daily jobs in their spoolers. Many of them are reports from batch applications, online transaction logs, and other important output data needed for critical business analysis.”
“While spooler jobs are not necessarily critical to online transaction processing, much of the report data may be crucial to a company’s efficient daily operations.”
One simple method to replicate spooler jobs from Production to DR system easily is to use TIC’s Tele2000 product:
