  • News from HPE’s NonStop Division
    Cool technology! When did we last hear about that? Well, the world is changing. Customers are looking for “solutions,” use them and “pay by the drink.” “It doesn’t matter what’s underneath” is the oft-repeated phrase or so it seems. Well, really?

  • The Flipside
    My recent change consulting work has taken me to the mergers and acquisitions world. Now I don’t know about you, but I can’t imagine a greater transformational change for team leaders than getting acquired by an industry giant. Not only is there culture and strategy change, but also a myriad of systems, tools and processes that either need to be learned or integrated.

  • Virtual NonStop when you need one.
    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
    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
    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!
    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.
