NTI – a single strategy for DRNet® to deliver data to where it is needed now!


 “By focusing on data as it has done for quite a long time, NTI is aware that just over the horizon, and only now coming into view, are (heavy) demands being placed on data. While much of the press eloquently portrays an upcoming tsunami of data following IoT connecting to our networks, it is the expectation that enterprises will be able to transform away from being reacting to where they are more likely to be predictive and prescriptive. And by this, it is NTI’s belief that a variety of tools already in use will demand greater access to data of every kind, be that from sensors on machines to transactions on terminals.”

If it’s been a while since you last checked out the latest feature article published in the digital publication, NonStop Insider, then you would have missed seeing the above that was part of the March, 2019, issue. And while it is NTI’s belief that a variety of tools already in use will demand greater access to data of every kind it’s equally NTI’s belief that any strategy associated with maximizing the value locked away in data provides enterprises with multiple options as to how best to retrieve, distribute and integrate data. When it comes to NonStop systems, DRNet® offers these enterprises a path forward for not just replication but a data-centric platform spearheading data created on NonStop to be available to wherever it is needed.

One of the best examples of just how well this data-centric platform that is DRNet® today is moving forward in support of this strategy is the availability today of
DRNet® VISION.The news coming from NTI that it is now bringing to the market DRNet® VISION – our support for better NonStop integration with Splunk – is only just the beginning. Splunk already has a tremendous following among those who want to make sense of data of all types and from all sources.” This too appeared in the March feature article just published in the March, 2019, issue – it’s indicative of just how rapidly NTI is filling in the pieces to ensure data is never left to lie dormant on NonStop systems.

DRNet® has been all about replication and it provided leadership when it came to embracing Change Data Capture (CDC) techniques – the first to do so in the NonStop world. However, CDC in support of replication is only the beginning as now NTI has added integration, is addressing transformation and, very soon, will be including distribution to ensure all NonStop users can capitalize on the growing need to provide access to mission critical data wherever there is a requirement – and data from Mission Critical Systems is in big demand.

Anticipate reading more about this single strategy for NTI as it embraces the key aspects of replication, distribution, integration and transformation. And to read the full article published in the March, 2019, issue of NonStop Insider, check out this link -

Events, Summits, Exhibitions and Symposiums – all providing valuable input for NTI!

The June through July period proved rather hectic as one event followed another. As the team returned from Leipzig, Germany, where the GTUG / European NonStop HotSpot 2018 had been held the plans were put in place to spend time with even more members of the Nonstop community. First it was a short trip to join with our good friends in Texas and Oklahoma for the N2TUG NonStop User Group meeting. A matter of a few days later, some of us then went to Las Vegas for HPE Discover 2018 before even more of the NTI team traveled to Palo Alto for the NonStop Partner Technology Symposium 2018. 


There is always something new that finds its way on to an agenda and there are always surprises. You don’t have to spend all that much time talking to your colleagues to better understand what was really being said between the lines, as it were. No, this time around HPE and the NonStop management held few punches as the transformation to Hybrid IT continues unabated. The NonStop user community is turning t…

Texas T! Black gold! It’s time to head south for N2TUG.

The next gathering of the NonStop community will be in Plano, just outside Dallas, Texas. The N2TUG Regional User Group (RUG) will be holding a major get-together with special guest, Jimmy Treybig. For those who may not recall the origins of Tandem Computers, Jimmy was the founder and even today, the community always finds time to listen to what he has to say and this time, he will be talking about “The NonStop Journey!”
Naturally enough, there will be a cocktail reception to follow. RUG events continue to develop momentum and from the anecdotal evidence at hand, each RUG event this year appears to be outdoing the one before. Fresh from returning from GTUG in Leipzig, Germany, where we heard directly from Randy Meyer, VP & GM of HPE Mission Critical Systems, who was well-supported by Franz Koenig, HPE Senior Manager, World Wide Advanced Technology Center & Strategy, there is even more to be discussed at N2TUG.

Panning for gold, drilling for oil – striking it rich! With DRNet®, NTI customers are finding the high-quality data that will help grow their business.

“Where does the true value lie in the data captured by NonStop applications?” asked Tim Dunne, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales, NTI in a recent exchange with NonStop Insider. “NonStop systems are known for their fault tolerance and their suitability for processing the most mission-critical transactions of all, but increasingly today we are finding that the data captured as transactions are being processed is every bit as important to the enterprise as the successful completion of the transaction!” And with DRNet®, NTI provides so much more than just support for disaster recovery and with as much talk as there is today of maximizing the value locked away in the data these financial institutions accumulate over time, the replication capabilities of DRNet® are being looked at again for DRNet® ability to integrate.

What is often overlooked today is that NTI’s product, DRNet®, is an abbreviation for Data Resource Network and “a product name that oftentimes doesn’t convey all that we…
