Rethinking technology sustainability.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]I think we all care about our planet. We think about the future and the impact we are having. We all want to support environmentally positive behaviour. I mean do you still use plastic cups? No me neither, well, not often. What about your mobile phone. Do you leave it charging all night? Do you recycle your rubbish? Do you off-set your carbon?…

NonStop Migration: Should you stay or should you go?

In 1982, a band called THE CLASH sang, “Should I stay or should I go now? If I go, there will be trouble, and if I stay it will be double . . .” and it’s possible some NonStop customers may think it is better to stay on the NonStop i boat rather than migrate but over time that decision will cause them to miss out on new features and enhancements coming to the NonStop X product line. HPE NonStop recently announced the end of sales for NonStop i, our Itanium product line and of course it’s natural that customers are starting to ask if it’s time to migrate and to contemplate what the effort to migrate might involve.

What Wikipedia can tell you about Batch Scheduling

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Lots! However, nothing about HPE NonStop batch schedulers, especially MultiBatch, the mainframe-class NonStop Batch Scheduler.

So, let me resolve this oversight (depending on your perception of Wikipedia)…



As an example, some examples of the benefits that our UK Central Bank and OFI customers have when using MultiBatch:

  • Run RTGS applications
  • Reduce NonStop online-dealing batch run times by 6 hours per day (source available)
  • Manage and process securities settlements
  • Manage and monitor Atlas/GBS applications
  • Meet or exceed SLAs for NonStop site-swaps
  • Fast batch and application recovery following a site-swap
  • Fast and reliable NonStop system coldloads
  • Run Guardian and OSS jobs within the same schedule
  • Execute OSS jobs, incorporating STDIN, STDOUT, STDERR (no TACL scripts, or work around required)

For nearly 30 years, our customers have depended on MultiBatch to help improve their SLAs and batch scheduling run times.…

Fact or Fiction? Can Edge Computing and IoT Stop World Hunger?

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Stop world hunger, really? According to the World Economic Forum, the global population will increase to an estimated ten billion people by the year 2050 and will demand 70% more food than is produced today. That’s a lot of people to feed and will put greater stress on natural resources like water. Feeding this expanded population nutritiously and sustainably will require substantial improvements to the global food system – where nearly 1/3 of food produced is lost due to waste or supply chain inefficiencies.…

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]There are always budgetary pressures in the IT business, and customers who want certain kinds of equipment quickly often can’t get the servers, storage, and switching that they need when they need it. Those shopping for gear made by Hewlett Packard Enterprise may not know it, but they can work with their HPE resellers and an upstream distributor called Synergy Associates to get equipment fast – and at a good price, too.…
