BEEN A BUSY TIME AND IT’S ALL JUST A PREVIEW OF WHAT’S TO COME…

We have been busy in our office here in Dallas, Texas. We have major updates coming out for our DataExpress products – DataExpress NonStop (DXNS) testing and certification on NonStop X resulting in a version of DataExpress for NonStop X users as well as updating DataExpress Open Platform (DXOP) with a modernized fresh GUI, representing the new face of DataExpress and adding new protocol support. Of course, we are working with our DXOP customers on the impact the GUI will have on how they set up the product as well as how the progress of file transfers is reported –

NEW YEAR? NEW STRATEGY? DATAEXPRESS TO TRACK NONSTOP X ROLLOUT.

As we enter 2016 here at DataExpress, we are, like most companies across all industries and verticals, refining our vision, objectives and goals and of course, most important of all for many within the NonStop community, strategy! If there’s anything at all that can be considered as a consistent message coming from Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), it’s the enthusiasm about the company’s strategy.

HPE has followed a course that ensures everyone knows where they are headed and it’s safe to say, it’s all focused

A NEW HOME…

It seems that any time you venture onto the highway there’s no missing the number of trucks right alongside you. Around Dallas and with the airport nearby, the presence of so many big rigs can be disturbing at times as you weave between these workhorses of industry when trying to get from one part of the city to another. At a time when so many bricks-and-mortar retailers bemoan just how much business is being lost to online shopping sites, it’s no surprise to see that the number of trucks delivering purchases made online has escalated as it has and really

ON THE MOVE!

As you read this post the 2015 NonStop Technical Boot Camp is long past and with America fully in holiday mode we are expecting a lot of discussions to arise during the last couple of weeks of 2015. Clearly, by now, you have all read the many blog posts that highlighted the keynote presentation by Martin Fink, EVP and CTO, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, that he introduced as NonStop: The inside story.  Furthermore, we suspect you have also read of how Fink, some 10 years ago, nearly to the day, accepting the promotion to head the NonStop Enterprise Division (NED), was

This past week the regional user group, MATUG, held its annual get-together in the former premises of EDS, now an HP facility.

AS MUCH AS IT MAY WORRY US THERE’S TRULY NO DOWNSIDE TO HAVING CHOICE!

There are always varying opinions when it comes to choice. That’s not to say there are those against there being choices, but rather, when it comes to technology, choice can sometimes lead to confusion. Give anyone responsible for managing technology a number of choices and the upshot can often be that no decision is made. None! For the NonStop community that DataExpress serves choice is very much on the minds of users, no matter how big or small their IT infrastructure is and whether NonStop is playing a supporting role or is the sole system a company relies on to

Whether you are visiting the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex or head to destinations further south, there’s always one question that comes up. Where can we find good Texas smoke house BBQ? You know, one of those where there’s really good brisket and sausage that draws the crowds to this state? And as much as we can try to guide them to places we believe that they might enjoy, there’s always that waiting time

IT’S ALL GOOD – THE NEWS FROM CONNECT GERMANY GTUG!

The Connect Germany GTUG conference, workshops and exhibition held in Munich, at the end of last month, had more than its fair share of surprises. Coming after the formal announcement of the first member of the new NonStop X family of NonStop systems, the HP NonStop X NS7 X1, just four weeks earlier, those attending the Munich event heard firsthand what’s just over the horizon. Additional family members – some with more cores, some with less – helped mitigate any anxieties that may have developed that HP was providing more power than most NonStop users could consume, a circumstance that
