NTI functions well with social distancing in place: even greater need for business continuity!

No matter how much we invest today in our home office, working from home is still that; we are at home, working. For many vendors within the NonStop community there has always been some of their employees who qualified as remote workers, but with today’s global pandemic still holding sway over much of the planet, it’s as if our home office has become the new “work central.” Almost nothing we do in support of NonStop customers sees us moving all that far away from our desks, whether set up in the living room, on the deck, in the basement or in the garage.

What NTI would like to emphasize is that from its earliest days, NTI has been about supporting our employees who prefer to work remotely. Development and support have worked remotely for many years – it’s just the nature of our business, working with the NonStop community, but today, you will find all of NTI working from home in accordance with directives and mandates imposed globally. It has always been about our people and we have had the good fortune to have the infrastructure in place to support a remote workforce for a very long time in fact, indefinitely.

It has been the focus of numerous articles and posts that perhaps what we are all witnesses to is going to become the new normal. While some commentators have gone so far as to suggest that it’s more like facing a future that is not normal, all indicators suggest that few of us will be in a hurry to return to commuting even as those towering office blocks look like becoming works of art. The global pandemic has proved to be the biggest catalyst driving change that any of us can recall. Who could have imagined as many parcel delivery vans as there are today crisscrossing our suburbs? If there was a time when you considered it highly unlikely that eCommerce would be part of the new normal then think again. It’s arrived and the infrastructure in place has a lot to do with Nonstop.




In the May issue of NonStop Insider you will find the article, NTI watching what’s changed: the need for social distancing and what hasn’t changed: the need for business continuity. In this article, the topic of change is central to commentary provided by Tim Dunne, NTI’s Senior Vice President Worldwide Sales:

“What hasn’t changed is the need of businesses everywhere to proactively pursue workable business continuity plans. The focus on Business Continuity remains as strong as ever.

“And for good reason; no business wants to be offline as the world of business becomes a fully online business. As an industry we can debate whether it’s happening in the data center, out on the edge, or even whether it is driving business to the cloud, but the bottom line remains.

“What hasn’t changed is businesses’ desire to attract and retain customers and nothing impacts that bottom line more adversely than you driving your customers into the arms of your competition.

“It’s all about maximum uptime and this calls for an all-inclusive approach to ensuring there are more than one data center, cloud or service provider on the ready and fully capable of taking over the operations should anything happen.”

NTI performs well at N2TUG – support of JSON in DRNet® now a reality!

For your NTI team the month of June concluded with participation in the N2TUG event held outside Dallas at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center, Grapevine, Texas. The venue proved to be a good drawcard for the NonStop Regional User Group (RUG) members, with attendees filling the meeting room throughout the day. Always a good litmus test of the interest in all things NonStop, N2TUG didn’t disappoint and we were encouraged by the strength of the community. 

There is much to be said about RUG events these days and it’s all positive – with so much change happening at HPE and with as much engagement as there is today between HPE and the NonStop team, who would want to miss hearing about NonStop whenever an opportunity presents itself? NTI was one of two Gold Sponsors of the event and was also a cosponsor of the evening cocktail reception. This is part of an ongoing campaign by NTI management to support RUG gatherings wherever they occur around the world.
As for messages from HPE …

NTI - looking forward to the promise of 2020!

Today there is visibly more enthusiasm over the future of NonStop within HPE and it comes from the top, with executives talking openly of how they see the role being played by NonStop growing in importance. After all, as we heard said frequently in 2019, when it comes to NonStop then yes, we create the data! In today’s highly connected world, where access to data is instantaneous, having the right data in the right place is of paramount importance where data created on NonStop continues to be the freshest and highly valued and in an environment where HPE is telling CIOs that data is the new currency of business it’s pleasing to all NonStop stakeholders to hear of NonStop being talked about in this manner.

Igniting the level of enthusiasm now in evidence among the NonStop team has secondary effects on the NonStop community that too are quite noticeable – a renewed enthusiasm for NonStop. As contagious as such enthusiasm has become it’s just the start, as the major role data replicatio…
