HP to Extend HP NonStop to x86 Server Platform
Posted on 5-Nov-2013 10:57 | Tags Filed under: News



HP today announced plans to extend its mission-critical HP NonStop technology to x86 server architecture, providing the 24/7 availability required in an always-on, globally connected world, and increasing customer choice.

The company also announced new HP Integrity NonStop blade servers based on the Intel Itanium processor 9500 series.

The demand for continuous application availability is growing exponentially due to trends driven by cloud, mobility and big data that require a “New Style of IT.” Customers increasingly need reliable solutions with standards-based technologies for their most business-critical workloads to reduce complexity while minimizing the crippling costs of downtime.

By extending HP NonStop capabilities to an x86 architecture, organizations can receive greater reliability and performance while simplifying management and increasing operational efficiencies.

Development work is already underway to extend the HP NonStop platform to x86. Customer adoption is anticipated to begin over the next several years and HP Technology Services will help customers protect their investment through the transition to an x86 platform.

“Demands for round-the-clock, web-enabled access to mission-critical business services are driving increased requirements for systems that are secure and highly available," said Jean S. Bozman, research vice president, IDC. “Extending HP NonStop to an x86 server platform shows a deep level of investment in maintaining the NonStop technology for mission-critical workloads in financial markets, telecommunications and other industries. At the same time, it brings new levels of availability to x86-based standardized data center infrastructure.”

In November 2011, HP announced Project Odyssey, a strategy to redefine the future of mission-critical computing with a development roadmap that furthers the company’s investment in established mission-critical technology and new x86-based solutions. As a continuation of this effort, HP is extending its server portfolio to include HP NonStop on an x86 architecture, allowing customers to select either an Itanium- or x86-based platform for their mission-critical needs.

“Giving customers the power to leverage open standards for HP NonStop environments is a game-changing rebirth for the platform,” said Harry Scott, co-founder of Scott Software, Inc., an HP NonStop partner. “It’s a move that demonstrates HP’s interest in having the NonStop platform remain the cornerstone for mission-critical enterprise class systems.”

Today, HP NonStop runs the world’s most critical applications, ensuring data integrity, and enabling massive scalability and dependability of resources to eight of the top 10 world banks. The technology also powers 100 percent of the top 10 global manufacturing companies and processes more than $122 billion of fuel transactions in the United States.(1)

HP NonStop enables customers to leverage a proven solution for always-on business that delivers up to 100 percent fault tolerance, regardless of the underlying architecture. The technology also leverages HP Converged Infrastructure to maximize data center efficiencies.

HP NonStop customers also can take advantage of 50 percent greater performance in the same footprint when moving to the new HP Integrity NonStop BladeSystem NB56000c or the HP Integrity NonStop BladeSystem NB56000c-cg.

With increased scalability, organizations can easily support thousands of users with a simple HP NonStop blade server swap.

The new HP Integrity NonStop BladeSystem NB56000c and the HP Integrity NonStop BladeSystem NB56000c-cg are available worldwide today. HP offers highly customized customer-centric solutions with HP NonStop servers. Pricing varies for each of the new HP solutions. Customers can contact their dedicated HP NonStop account representative for more information.
