DataExpress – taking security knowledge to a bigger play at Data443

Looking back on 2019 it would be safe to say it was a year of dramatic changes for DataExpress. Being acquired was one thing but joining an organization focused as solidly as Data443 is on security represents an opportunity to build on what we have learnt to date.

DataExpress: Observations and requests following TBC 2019

It was a packed house for the opening keynote at this year’s HPE NonStop Technical Boot Camp (TBC). Held once again at the Hyatt Regency in Burlingame, California, it proved to be a visible reinforcement of the popularity of HPE NonStop systems. At a time when so much attention is being given to the importance of data it’s good to know that it is this community that is running mission critical applications on NonStop where data is created. It’s also a time when the NonStop community hears firsthand of how many industries are being served by NonStop, but perhaps best of all, it proved to be a time when 100+ attendees stood up to let us all know that they were first time participants. For many who have been present at NonStop events through the decades it was a reminder of ITUG Summits of years past.

Security – even as demands evolve, DataExpress meets the challenges that arise!

Security affects all vendors in many ways and it is perhaps the most talked about priority amongst the biggest enterprises on the planet. It’s good to know how serious these enterprises are treating security in its many guises – privacy, protection, compliance, integrity, etc. – and that the exchanges between enterprises and vendors represent an never-ending loop of requirements creation and product development. However, there are times when the need to keep secret how a vendor’s product has been deployed and put to use not only hides specifics from that vendor but also can marginalize the effectiveness of requirements exchanges where information provided may not fully qualify the opportunity.

CLOUDLESS SKIES ARE BEING PREDICTED, BUT FOR DATAEXPRESS IT DOESN’T MATTER – FILES STILL NEED TO BE MOVED!

There was a lot of information provided at this year’s HPE Discover event. While the event wrapped up some time ago, for the NonStop vendor community there were numerous topics that aroused our interest and of course, as best as we can determine at this time, there were some interesting developments for the NonStop community as the HPE team unveiled a working NonStop system running at the edge on an Edgeline 4000. Whether this demo develops into a product line or not remains to be seen, but initial feedback suggests any go to market plan of HPE will see such a product addressing markets left mostly underserved.

HYBRIDS, HIGHWAYS AND JUST GETTING THERE…

It would be hard to ignore just how much attention hybrid cars continue to get whenever there is a car show. At the most recent car show that was held in New York City, it was Toyota’s turn to unveil yet more hybrid cars – this time, attention was being directed to hybrid versions of its venerable Toyota Highlander that is being updated with “smart hybrid tech” joining announcements from other vendors, including Ford with a reference to hybrids for both the Lincoln Aviator and the Ford Escape and Porsche with its updated plug-in Panamera hybrid. While all electric cars still gain a lot of media attention, when it comes to America, many families prefer the hybrid with its backup combustion engine.
