A Note From Connect Leadership

Marty Edelman

August 2020, where to even start…  As I write this note to our community, things in the US are still uncertain vis-à-vis Covid-19, but I know as a community, we will continue to thrive and do great things! HPE had a virtual Discover event that was pretty well received, things are still in the planning stage for the NonStop Bootcamp, and I am sure we will have a great event no matter what format it will be. We have also had a few great NonStop virtual events, so things are continuing, abet in different formats.


News from HPE’s NonStop Division

We’re in a new world, “new” in more ways than one. The biggest change is the social norms and people interactions. Not sure how long it’s going to last. Some say “this could be a lasting change” but I do hope that’s not true. Human perseverance to improve lives have always won over crises that threaten to take us backwards. I do look forward to see that happening this time again!


NonStop Trends & Wins

Well we at HPE continue to work from home.  I was doing that anyway so my only change was never going out.  When I do I’m complying with mask recommendations and washing my hands often.  My youngest son is worried about me, which is very endearing.  He always offers to do the shopping but every once in a while you just want to pick your own peaches.  I never appreciated a trip to the store so much.  I’m sure everyone has their own stories to share and hopefully, we may be able to share them at the Bootcamp but we are still waiting to hear if that will be live or virtual.


NonStop Forward

The pandemic, which we are currently experiencing globally, has created chaos in the business world. Corporations scramble to deal with an uncertain economic future. Many projects or initiatives have been deferred till later this year, and in some cases, next year, or even indefinitely. The immediate strategy is to leverage current assets and extend and maximize their values. The NonStop has always proven to be the most reliable and cost-effective platform, supporting thousands of mission-critical applications worldwide every day. In these uncertain times, investment in the trustworthy NonStop platform through modernization will return more benefits than migrating to other platforms.


Reflections on a Virtual Users’ Group

Bill Honaker

Just a few months ago, N2TUG was starting to plan for our early summer meeting.  We had barely started the task when events outside our control made our usual in-person, Vendor-sponsored meeting unlikely at best.  We knew we wouldn’t be able to hold it in summer, and started considering the Fall.  In hindsight, even that was a bit too optimistic.

Easily Modernize and Expose Valuable Enscribe Data – Eliminate Data Silos

Gravic, Inc.

A large European steel tube manufacturer ran its online shop floor operations on an HPE NonStop Server. To exploit the currency and value of this online, trapped, and siloed data, the manufacturer periodically generated reports on Linux Servers using a customized application and connectivity tool that remotely queries the online NonStop Enscribe database and returns the results.


Next Generation Reflex @ VIRTU-NUG

Yikes! My very first video presentation.

I have been presenting, training, and pronouncing on the advantages of Insider Technologies product set for over 20 years, across various User Groups, customer installations, and training sessions but not one of them has involved the use of video. So why now?


Considerations for a Modern Enterprise Backup Solution

Glenn Garrahan

The need to backup, replicate, and recover data has always been historically imperative; today it has become a prioritized concern across all enterprises. Over a span of four decades, storage and backup technologies have had an evolutionary progress; one that has traversed all the way from the traditional reel-to-reel tapes, through disk drives, and their virtual avatars and ultimately, to breakthrough technologies like data deduplication and object storage that has massively reduced data redundancy and overheads…


Security Spotlight


Holistic security means more than just implementing one tool, one method, one solution, or one process to protect your business’s data. It means exploring every avenue to implement a multi-pronged defensive strategy and never depending on just a single security tool or solution. Organizations that follow more holistic approaches to security are the ones best positioned to remain in compliance with internal and regulatory mandates and to prevent breaches or unauthorized access to sensitive data. They’re the ones who can best protect their intellectual property, their brand reputation, and their customers’ most sensitive data.
