Well I guess by now we’re all aware that the 2020 NonStop Bootcamp will be an online affair. Given the current worldwide health concerns, this does seem like the only viable alternative.

Virtual or in-person, Tributary Systems will be participating in the Bootcamp, as we do every year. NonStop is an important market segment for us, we’ve been supporting NonStop users as an OEM supplier and Backup/Restore hardware and software vendor for the last quarter of a century. So virus or not, we’re ready!

In the October Issue of the “NonStop Insider”, I’ll be discussing Tributary’s participation in the Bootcamp, while providing details on what you can expect in our Virtual Booth. In the meantime ask yourself this question: Wouldn’t any NonStop customer appreciate saving 40% or more in data backup and archive costs while simultaneously increasing data security, availability and backup/restore performance?

It’s no secret, the need to backup, replicate and recover data has become a prioritized concern in NonStop core sectors such as telecom, healthcare and financial services, in fact, this is true across all enterprises. Over a span of six decades, storage and backup technologies have had an evolutionary (and revolutionary) progress; one that has traversed all the way from the original reel-to-reel tape of the 1950’s, through tape cartridges, library/silo automation, then disk drives, solid state disk, and ultimately, to breakthrough technologies like today’s data deduplication and object storage, both of which massively reduce data redundancy and overheads. Yet, data storage, by being a long-term strategy and investment, has made it difficult and usually expensive for CIOs to embrace newer technologies and systems, especially at a time when enterprises are witnessing unprecedented growth data generation and retention.

Consequently, many enterprises still use legacy applications running NonStop mission-critical servers with legacy data backup devices. Nonetheless, it is important for players in these sectors to reduce their ‘long-term’ data backup and archival expense by leveraging low cost advanced technologies available today, such as Cloud Object Storage, which has the proven capability to economically accommodate Petabyte-scale data backup and long-term retention. It is this brewing need that Tributary Systems has pinpointed; providing a wide array of solutions that pertain to both traditional and modern approach data backup, replication, protection, and recovery across all cloud and legacy NonStop platforms.

We’d all agree that NonStop data is the most mission-critical and valuable data in any enterprise, but perhaps Public cloud options such as AWS, Azure, and Google are not the best options for NonStop, where security, visibility, and ownership are major concerns.

So attend Tributary Systems Bootcamp and visit our virtual booth, where CEO Shawn Sabanayagam and the Tributary Systems’ team will detail low cost, highly secure and scalable data backup, archival and DR solutions for NonStop.

Recall that Tributary Systems has been a HPE NonStop OEM solutions supplier and partner for over two decades; we know NonStop and understand NonStop customer requirements.
