The IP CLIM provides a variety of attributes to configure network resources (such as interfaces, addresses, routes, sysctl) and options to control network traffic. This session details the different failover configurations to maximize availability of network resources and the various options for the recently released CLIM iptables feature. Configuring network routing on a multi-homed system connected to multiple disjoint networks requires careful planning and in-depth knowledge of the network reach ability. A well connected NonStop system will have multiple network providers, multiple CLIMs per provider, and multiple network interfaces per CLIM. This session provides a close look at the different routing configurations for IP CLIMs and available tools for debugging CLIM issues. A new feature on CLIMs provides the capability to configure multiple providers on CLIM.  This allows customers to configure logically independent network partitions (or LNPs) on a single CLIM.   This talk will provide a high level overview of how this feature is useful, how it is configured, and an overview of some newer Linux features that have enabled this capability.

Many NonStop customers have a need for faster transactions and increased transaction rates. Earlier this year, HP NonStop introduced direct attached Solid State Drives (SSDs) and disk partitioning. On NonStop platforms, SSDs are a disruptive technology that can provide significantly faster transaction response time and higher transaction throughput than Hard Disk Drives (HDDs), with the potential to significantly improve application performance. The NonStop SSDs are high endurance enterprise storage devices that store data in flash memory. Unlike HDDs, SSDs don’t have mechanical or moving parts, making them faster and providing high reliability.

The state of Application Modernization on HP NonStop Multi-Vendor Session and Panel Discussion

Gregg Bromm, Brad Poole, Ernie Guerrera

NonStop systems have always excelled in their serviceability characteristics. As a matter of fact, excellent serviceability is one of the major factor in low TCO of NonStop systems. With the introduction of NonStop BladeSystems and CLIMs, NonStop systems can take advantage of the standard serviceability features of leveraged HP hardware. In addition, HP has been investing continuously in enhancing NonStop serviceability. This session describes recent serviceability enhancements (such as, CLIM replacement guided procedure, down-system CLIM firmware update tool, DHCP DNS Configuration Wizard, and monitoring of NonStop maintenance LAN services), and provides a glimpse of even more upcoming serviceability enhancements (such as, double chip sparing). Application modernization has been an important theme for HP NonStop systems for several years now and there are numerous success stories of those who have capitalized on their NonStop investment. Today there is a broad set of tools provided by many of the solution providers designed specifically to enable rapid development of modern clients for your existing NonStop applications. In this session, experts from ACI, comForte, HP, NuWave, and TIC have teamed up to provide you with an overview of the solutions which are available today to make application modernization a reality for you too. We will conclude the session with a panel discussion where you will have the opportunity to ask questions of the team.
