Las Vegas ignited considerable interest in HPE; NTI adds capabilities to better support NonStop!



Edinburgh’s European (NonStop) Technical Boot Camp (ETBC) proved to be very good for NTI as it took the wraps off its strategy for NonStop. Introducing the NonStop community to PROVisioning: Excellence in Data gave notice to all members of the NonStop community that NTI was very much aware of the strategy being pursued by HPE and was aligning its own product roadmaps to better leverage the new and the upcoming  capabilities of HPE’s mission critical systems portfolio. There are many ways to ingest data created on NonStop, but building products using Change Data Capture (CDC) methodology ensures the speed needed to participate in today’s always connected, always on, world is guaranteed.

There are many ways to analyze data but having the fastest solution for inclusion in analytics processing in real time means NonStop users have access to the information even as transactions are being processed. Whether the data captured on NonStop is destined for processes performing replication, integration, distribution or transformation – NTI delivers with the
DRNet® product suite.

Las Vegas gave new meaning to why speed is important. As HPE CEO Antonio Neri introduced Susie Wolff, who manages the Venturi Formula E Racing team entrant in the Formula E competition, it was all about speed as well as analytics as AI plays a very important role in turning these cars into winners. With HPE support for Wolff’s Venturi team, where resources were limited and tightly controlled, the presence of HPE overseeing the analysis of data meant the team could assign valuable resources to other parts of the team’s racing program. In business it is very much the same – the presence of NTI and the DRNet® product suite means enterprises can assign resources to where they can make a difference, like projects that keep an enterprise competitive.  Equally true, just as HPE ensures flexibility to adjust to changing conditions, NTI and its products provide flexibility as to where and to whom data is delivered.

In the June, 2019 issue of NonStop Insider NTI gave a brief glimpse into what would be covered in the plenary presentation given by NTI’s Industry Consultant, Richard Buckle. If as yet you haven’t seen this issue or have as yet not read the feature article, here is a brief update taken directly from the article, NTI – Launches PROVisioning: Excellence in Data!

DRNet® and DRNet® / Open anchor the PROVisioning for Replicate. DRNet® / Vision for Splunk> anchor the PROVisioning for Integration – the interface being JDBC for now with JSON to follow, as will support of Hadoop, Kafka, etc. shortly. PROVisioning for Distribution will be anchored by our partner’s product supplied by a NonStop vendor participating in our ecosystem. As for PROVisioning for Transformation this will be part of extending business opportunities in the era of Hybrid IT and will include new features to simplify the way enterprises get data into and out of platforms needing data. However, this extension of business opportunities will also include NTI’s move into providing DRNet® as a Service.

The key to the success of this new strategy of NTI is the CDC model at the very heart of DRNet® deployments today. NTI continues to do an outstanding job when it comes to excellence of moving data from NonStop to anything else – it works with SQL, Enscribe, TMF audited and non-TMF audited files – without the need for any additional products. NTI was the first vendor to champion CDC on NonStop and everything that goes into making PROVisioning: Excellence in Data important for all NonStop users will be based on CDC methodology.    

Formula E Racing looks for speed at every opportunity as it is speed that differentiates the performance of one competitor over another. When it comes to NonStop speed too is advantageous as is flexibility together with the ability to accommodate the changing product portfolio of mission critical products coming from HPE. As HPE prepares to offer all of its products on the basis of “a-a-S” so too will NTI, with work already well under way to support a vendor-neutral private cloud capable of supporting all NTI products to be consumed as services.

There will be more coverage of this in future articles and posts, but for now, if you haven’t read the article published in the June, 2019 issue of NonStop Insider, referenced above, simply go to the article by clicking on the hyperlink included above or just as  easily, cut and paste this link into you browser - https://www.nonstopinsider.com/uncategorised/nti-launches-provisioning-excellence-in-data/

The NTI team meets in Ohio and the news is all good!

Spending time on the road never surprises anyone who follows our posts to any of the blogs we support. It’s all part and parcel of the way we interact with the NonStop vendor community and is the routine manner by which we communicate the changing industry landscape. Whether it is presenting at a RUG event, participating in a webinar or simply catching up with former colleagues, the common thread connecting everything we do is NonStop. And with that, and the passion with which I address NonStop products and features, we are being kept very busy of late as HPE continues to push the boundaries in its support of NonStop solutions. However, this most recent road trip to Columbus, Ohio, proved to be anything but a routine event! We haven’t previously made the trip to NTI’s head office and had only met just a few of the team members at RUG meetings. This time we met with all the folks behind the DRNet® products and we are pleased to report, NTI has a great team supporting its product line. 

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…

NTI – establishing product priorities with NonStop community

Reflecting on everything that took place for the NonStop community during 2018 is now well and truly over. So much was announced by the HPE NonStop team that the full impact of what is planned for delivery in 2019 is beginning to take shape – it will be exciting to see what new projects will see the light of day within the NonStop user community. It’s all well and good to be excited by the prospects for NonStop deployments, but what will become a priority for the NonStop community in 2019? It’s now a time to get to work leveraging the benefits of the new NonStop!

The first indications about what most likely will take place in 2019 become visible to the NonStop community at large during Regional User Group (RUG) meetings. These events are mainstay of information sharing across the NonStop community, continue to thrive and, for as long as anyone in the NTI offices can recall, NTI has been supporting RUGs and sharing information about DRNet®. However, all through that time information has…
