TANDsoft News: Blazing Fast Solutions Now on HPE GreenLake

Now, your organization can access leading TANDsoft solutions through the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform. This streamlines the process of testing, procuring, and deploying our solutions and gives you the flexibility of consumption-based pricing.

What’s the difference between blazing fast and blistering fast?

Several years ago, we first announced the “blazing-fast” technology featured in our solutions, specifically FS Compare and Repair and FS Backup and Restore. In fact, we made our first big announcement at the HPE NonStop Virtual User Group event (VIRTU-NUG) that took place in 2020.

FS Compare and Repair offers fast, advanced capabilities to ensure your nodes are kept in sync at all times. The solution employs a market-leading, block-level hashing technology that delivers breakthrough speed and scalability. FS Compare and Repair can validate and repair HPE NonStop Enscribe files, OSS files, and SQL/MP and SQL/MX tables. Quite simply, if your organization needs to compare high volumes of files with lots of data—and do it quickly—FS Compare and Repair is the solution for you.

Recently, you may have read of a solution that offers “blistering fast” comparison functionality. While the terms sound similar, the underlying realities of each solution are not.

What’s the difference between a solution that is blazing fast and one that is blistering fast? Only our FS Compare and Repair solution is:

  • Available today. While the competitor has touted a version in beta testing, our solution is available today.
  • Deployed in production. HPE NonStop customers around the world have FS Compare and Repair running in production. Every day, they rely on the solution’s proven capabilities for business-critical services in their HPE NonStop environments.
  • Demonstrably faster. In tests, FS Compare and Repair demonstrated breakthrough speed. This blazing-fast solution did a comparison of 10,000,000 records in 13 seconds and a 1 TB multi-partitioned file in 10 minutes.

Blazing fast – FS Compare and Repair in Production

NonStop customer 1:

“ FS Compare is live and in production and is being utilized successfully, and we are happy with its performance. We use it for comparing PROD vs DR to identify mismatches. No Repair yet, but we would like to be able to use this feature.

We have automated the FS Compare execution for every weekend.

On Sunday’s, FS Compare deals with roughly 950 files, totaling to 1.3 TB, with average processing duration of 2 hours 40 minutes.

On Saturday’s, FS Compare deals with roughly 1700 files, totaling to 1.8 TB, with  average processing duration of 2 hours.

Once every 2 to 3 months, we overload FS Compare with roughly 5 TB worth of data, across 7500 files, with average processing time of 6 to 7 hours. ” Quote from the customer.

The files are TMF Audited and consist of Enscribe, SQL/MP and SQL/MX tables. An online replicator is used to update the DR files.

NonStop customer 2:

“We use FS Compare and Repair to Synchronize our DR files. We went from 24-hour synchronization to 2 hours for Enscribe and SQL/MP tables. For the files that are synchronized every 2 hours, some take 1 hour, but most are 30 minutes or less. Some of the jobs have lots of files and others have large SQL tables.“ Quote from the customer.

The files are Un-Audited and consist of Enscribe and SQL/MP tables. There is no online replicator in use.

Quite simply, there’s no reason to wait or settle—you can leverage our leading solution today.

FS Compare and Repair: Part of a Family of Products

FS Compare and Repair is just one of the leading solutions TANDsoft provides. Here’s an introduction to some of our other offerings:

  • FileSync. To meet their continuity objectives, leading organizations rely on FileSync, our pioneering replication and synchronization solution. FileSync employs a block-level approach that offers breakthrough speed and scalability. FileSync automatically monitors, replicates, and synchronizes files in a range of application environments.
  • FS Backup and Restore. Most OLTP payment environments suffer considerable delay and network overhead from backups that drag on for hours. With this solution, teams can reduce those times to minutes. FS Backup and Restore detects file data block modifications and saves them to disk or archives them to the HPE backup utility. The solution can quickly retrieve saved modifications from disk and apply them to recreate the original file contents. Additionally, the solution provides continuous data protection (CDP) capabilities that enable rapid recovery from a ransomware attack.
  • OPTA2000. OPTA2000 provides date, time, and time zone simulation for all NonStop applications and databases. The solution makes it easy to test all your date- and time-sensitive logic—without having to change system clocks or modify your applications. In addition, with OPTA2000 you can have applications executing in multiple time zones while running on a single server.
