You are Responsible for Data Security in the Cloud

Thomas Gloerfeld

Across the globe, organizations invested heavily during the pandemic to adapt to new market conditions, drive more efficient business processes and support mass home working. It’s estimated that 60% of corporate data globally is now stored in the cloud, and much of this will be in public cloud data centres.

Virtual NonStop when you need one.

Margo Holen

Do you remember early 1980s? Or perhaps, just like our young server last night, you were not even born yet back then? So last night as we entered the restaurant we noticed a priest sitting at a table with a young family, parents and a couple of kids ages about 5. Richard Buckle ordered a bottle of Penfolds 389, as he does whenever we are at the Fort Collins, CO, Rare restaurant on Sunday – no it is not a religious ceremony, the priest’s presence totally accidental, it’s just that on Sundays they have wines half off!

uLinga for Kafka – High Performance, Fault-Tolerant Kafka Streaming

Andrew Price

In the Sept-Oct 2021 edition of The Connection, we gave an overview of Kafka, and how it is being used by many Fortune 500 companies to manage “streams” of data, which have become prevalent as internet usage massively boosts the amount of data being generated, and requiring processing. Kafka allows these huge volumes of data to be processed in real-time, via a combination of “producers” and “consumers”, which work with a Kafka “cluster” – the main data repository.

NonStop and abat+ at Discover 2022

Justin Simonds

HPE Virtualized NonStop started as just a concept and challenge to the NonStop development team. Andy Bergholz, if you remember him, had sent the team off for some virtualization training and just asked “Could NonStop be virtualized”? “No”, “Never” “Of course not” “Why”? But then, as Andy suspected, there started a lot of “Well, what if…” conversations and in just a little while they had booted NonStop under OpenStack. That’s the way great leaders get things done

It’s a virtual world after all … it’s a virtual, virtual world!

Richard Buckle

As I began to write this article for some strange reason these words came to mind. First heard on the Disney pavilion at the 1964 World’s Fair, the song, It’s a small world after all continues to captivate audiences worldwide. It was back on this month, April of 1964 that the Fair opened with Disney supporting four exhibits and even as I was living in Sydney, Australia, my father captured the spirit of the Fair in photos he took when visiting New York in 1965.

Seven Magnificent Features All Integrity Monitors Should Have

Daniel Lewis

Winston Churchill once said “To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often”. While that might have been a smart way to justify his changing of political party allegiance (and true when it comes to passwords!), it obviously doesn’t sit quite so well when it comes to critical files and configurations on your HPE NonStop!

For anyone who has ever ventured into the surf rolling onto a beach, the presence of waves as they fade on the sand is obvious. They just come at you one wave after the other, or so it seems. But avid surfers know that these waves typically come ashore in sets with the first wave foreshadowing much more impressive waves yet to come.

Leverage Heterogeneous Data Transformation and Distribution to Create New Business Opportunities

Paul Holenstein

Real-time data replication products, such as HPE Shadowbase software, are well known for their ability to facilitate IT service availability (Business Continuity) by replicating production data in real-time across multiple systems to create backup database copies. Should one system fail, current, consistent data is available on alternate systems which can take over processing, thereby maintaining service availability. But such products also provide another significant capability: a heterogeneous Data Distribution Fabric Backbone (DDFB), which facilitates data integration.
