HP today announced enhancements to the HP
Integrity NonStop portfolio that deliver increased capacity, improved
performance and enhanced enterprise integration, enabling customers to drive
business efficiency while providing greater service levels.
For 35 years, companies demanding uninterrupted applications have relied on
HP NonStop systems to run their mission-critical operations. HP Integrity
NonStop servers have delivered world-class fault tolerance and performance to
companies worldwide that depend on reliable 24/7 operations, such as financial
institutions, emergency response centers, hospitals and mobile phone operators.
“Rabobank looks to HP NonStop technology to handle our mission-critical
financial services applications and help mitigate risks associated with virtual
banking,” said Diederick de Buck, technical architect for NonStop systems at
Rabobank, a full-range financial services provider based in the Netherlands.
“The HP NonStop system has been an innovative force in mission-critical
computing from the very beginning and has laid a solid foundation for Rabobank
for many years to come.”
New enhancements to the HP NonStop portfolio include:
- Enhanced performance of complex enterprise data center systems spanning a
large geographic area and thousands of processors, with NonStop BladeCluster
- Improved business decision-making by aggregating “islands” of information
across an enterprise with NonStop
SOAP 4.0, providing seamless integration with open source software such as
Spring, Apache Axis2, MyFaces and Hibernate – all common elements of
service-oriented architectures (SOA).
- Increased service levels through simplified software programming, improved
application capacity and higher performance with the upgraded NonStop
SQL 2.3 database.
These enhancements enable customers to easily deploy new applications and
services in less time, while improving access and management of mission-critical
technology infrastructures. As a result, customers can turn critical information
into business intelligence that can be used to drive growth, improve service
levels and reduce costs.
