Ross Systems International Releases Program Licensing Suite

Ross Systems International, has pleasure in announcing RSI LICENSE, the second major offering in RSI’s cryptographic product range.

As with HSEMM, RSI’s HSM Emulator Suite, RSI License has been developed to make advanced cryptographic techniques available to corporate solution providers who want and need to use security based solutions in the development and rollout of their products, but do not have the time or cryptographic know how to implement them.

The RSI LICENSE Product is a set of HP NonStop  programs and libraries that provide a simple, easy to use, flexible and effective method of setting up a program licensing environment, enabling program licensing control, issuing licenses, in  the form of encrypted files, and maintaining those licenses for multiple HP NonStop Systems over time.

RSI LICENSE is designed as a hierarchical licensing system in which Ross Systems International can grant licenses to licensors who can then grant licenses to their product users

It has the following benefits:

◙ The licenses issued are very secure

It is very easy to modify the licensing system for a new program or program group

◙ Licensing Libraries exist for C, C++, TAL, pTAL and COBOL programs.

It is very easy to add licensing to a program

◙ You can wild card a program to operate with any of your licenses.

Issuing licenses with LICENSE is secure, simple and flexible.

◙ Multiple Systems Can be licensed in one license file.

Optional wild cards in the license file enable you to determine how the licenses operate.

◙ You can determine what happens when a license is infringed.

Infringement reporting on EMS log and home terminal.

◙ It is very easy to maintain license files using the VIEWLICE utility

Availability Digest Promotes Availability Benchmarks

System availability has become as important a matter with customers as system performance. The Availability Digest’s June issue promotes the value of availability benchmarks. Also discussed is a virtual tape solution for NonStop data centers, a Geek Corner review of redundant nodes in NonStop systems, and why Fire in the Computer Room. What Next? is a recommended read for those concerned with how to recover from a total system and file loss.

The Digest focuses on continuous processing architectures, with particular attention given to active/active technology. Each issue of the Digest features articles on the following topics: Case Studies, Never Again, Best Practices, Active/Active Topics, Recommended Reading, Product Reviews, and The Geek Corner. www.availabilitydigest.com

Digest editor Bill Highleyman also will be visible throughout the upcoming HP Technology Forum & Expo, this year to be held in Las Vegas, Nevada (USA) in mid-June. Make time to sit in on Bill’s talks on “Active/Active Versus Clusters” and “Active/Active in Action.” Take part in his panel discussion on “Active/Active Replication for SQL/MX.” Bill also will serve as co-moderator (along with SIG leader Richard Buckle from GoldenGate) of the Business Continuity SIG, formerly known as the Disaster Recovery SIG.


Crystal Point and Aleri

Europe’s largest banks now able to modernize applications using secure web-based interface and enhanced functionality from Crystal Point

Crystal Point today announced that the company’s application modernization technology has been integrated with the Aleri Global Banking System (GBS) back-office banking solution.

Aleri Global Banking is one of the world’s largest providers of software solutions for the wholesale banking industry. More than $10 trillion worth of transactions are processed every month on systems from Aleri Global Banking. This latest advance to Aleri’s GBS application is already installed at one of the world’s largest banks, and is being evaluated at another. All Aleri customers now have the opportunity to upgrade their operations.

Crystal Point’s AppViewXS provides a powerful way for companies to modernize their business operations by transitioning host applications to a browser-based interface. AppViewXS offers a secure, browser-based, modern interface into Aleri’s GBS, their premier back-office banking solution used globally by many banks. AppViewXS helps Aleri customers leverage their IT investment by improving functionality, accessibility, security while enhancing the user experience with a graphical user interface. It enables Aleri’s customers to quickly, efficiently and transparently, get their information over a browser such as Internet Explorer, without changes to Aleri’s underlying GBS application.

Unlike a basic ‘screen scraper’ application, AppViewXS offers the ability to implement secure communications and application customization as well as provide the look and feel of a web front end, or GUI interface. In Aleri’s case, AppViewXS replaces their in-house developed desktop-based Advanced User Interface (AUI), with pure browser access to deliver a more robust, flexible and maintainable user experience.

As a 100% Java application, AppViewXS can tightly integrate Java technology without any changes to the legacy application engine. Craig Morris, Aleri’s Director of Customer Support, Maintenance & Enhancements said, “The architecture of our wholesale banking application has withstood the test of time but the user experience was limited by old fashioned green-screen terminal emulation-based access. AppViewXS has provided a fresh, modern look and feel as well as enabling us to develop new user functionality - and all without changing application code!”

More information on AppViewXS and Crystal Point’s complete portfolio of host connectivity solutions is available at www.crystalpoint.com .

Crystal Point, Inc.

Since 1986, Crystal Point has delivered efficient, cost effective solutions to organizations looking to leverage their NonStop enterprise application investments. From traditional host access products performing terminal emulation, to SSL or SSH2 encryption of data communications and file transfers, to host publishing applications that rejuvenate, repurpose and integrate multiple legacy applications, Crystal Point offers a full range of host connectivity solutions. The majority of NonStop users worldwide use Crystal Point software.

Marshall Resources - June 2007 / System Upgrades

We continue our series of articles from Marshall Resources about the state of the Second User Market with a look at S Series I/O Enclosures and other expansion hardware. Both Servernet One and Servernet Two compatible IOMF Controllers are now readily available in our market. This is also the most cost effective means of adding capacity to the S Series system, both in terms of hardware and software costs.

Adding an I/O Cabinet to the S70K, S72K, S7000, S7400, S7600, and even S7800 does not require Servernet Two technology. This upgrade involves one Enclosure and two 1952 IOMF Controllers. Adding a Servernet Two compatible I/O Cabinet is slightly more expensive as you need one Enclosure, two 1980 IOMF-II Controllers, plus the added cost of a 7360 Power Shelf, and two 6750M-C PICs and Cables. Both IO Enclosures do not require Servernet Boards in the I/O slots, so you have use of all four I/O bays for peripheral devices as well as the 16 disk slots.

Adding an I/O Enclosure also provides the footprint for an easy CPU upgrade in the future. There is an abundant amount of this hardware available, so pricing is very attractive and should remain so.

At Marshall Resources, we strive to provide the highest quality service with the highest quality equipment. Our repeat customers are our greatest compliment. Please visit our website at www.marshallresources.com for our company information, and find a sales representative in your area to assist you. We can always be reached at 800-443-0128, or by e-mail. We are looking forward to working with you.

Backup Replication – Complete the DR Challenge

ETI-NET is the leading supplier of data de-duplication technology for NonStop Systems and we now bring a new approach to completing the DR dilemma. BackBox can compress local data 30x or more and transparently replicate this data to BackBox repositories at other locations via low-cost WAN connections. Massive compression multiplies the cost effectiveness of a given disk storage unit and it greatly reduces the WAN bandwidth required for inter-site replication of this data.

BackBox implements replication without NonStop Host involvement, and stages the DR data in a “standby” storage at the remote site. Upon primary site failure, ETI-NET’s DR activation processing restores the primary site’s DSM/TC catalog contents onto the designated DR system, enabling instant restores of the backup data already present on virtual tapes at the DR site.

Active-Active, Many-to-One or Off-Line DR topologies are supported.

Take the pain out of DR. No tapes to transport or risk of loss. No worrying about whether DR copies are up to date. No complex tasks to figure out what is on which tape and how to get it to the DR system to restore it.

This solution is available now. To learn more, see a live demo in Booth 349 at the HP Technology Forum / ITUG Summit in Las Vegas June 18-21. Contact ETI-NET by telephone at 1-800-546-9101 or by email at information@etinet.com.


Architecture and Economics of real-time access to BASE24-eps Transaction Data

Steve Tanham (Managing Director, Insider Technologies Limited) provided the above named presentation to an audience at the May 2007, EBUG Conference in Istanbul.

This presentation covered the following areas:

1. The importance of real-time access to transactional data

2. Logging real-time information and how to access it, both for BASE24 and BASE24-eps environments

3. The requirement for fast and flexible access to real-time log and journal files

4. Real-time business performance dashboards to monitor BASE24 health

5. Transaction Monitoring to provide Business and Technical intelligence

The presentation invited attendees to consider the importance of real-time access to their BASE24 transactional data, whether it is resident in BASE24 TLF/PTLF log files or within the BASE-eps Journal files (JLF).

Very valuable transactional information has been written to these ‘logs’ and Insider have developed products and strategies to enable Business Service teams and Technical teams to access this data in order to provide:

1. Transaction Monitoring for Business and Technical intelligence – “the 2nd line of defence against fraud”

2. Service Management for ‘top n merchants’

3. First warning of system faults, attempted fraud, slow transaction rates

4. Extract data from the TLF, PTLF, JLF files and other key sources

5. Fast access without imposing any overheads on the log / JLF files

6. Secure and encrypted extraction of ‘log’ information to a dedicated Insider reaction engine

The key to all this, is making this complex information visual to enable the Business and Technical community to:

1. Monitor BASE24 and BASE24-esp via web based graphical views

2. Obtain a summary of the Business Health

3. Drill-down to real-time transactions and alerts

4. Query the real-time transaction flow

5. Receive alerts for attempted fraud

6. Display and receive alerts for abnormal Business metrics

7. Create Management Information Reports

Migration strategy for BASE24 to BASE24-eps

For users wishing to migrate their ATM/POS monitoring from BASE24 to BASE24-eps, users can tailor their own schemas to feed to a third party product, such as Insider’s RTLX Reactor engine.

Alternatively, Insider can develop an Extraction Layer to extract the BASE24-eps transaction data and populate the RTLX Reactor engine, where the above Business and Technical functions can be utilised.

If you would like to see the RTLX Reactor product in ‘action’, please visit the following link where a ‘flash’ demonstration can be downloaded, along with copies of a Datasheet and White Paper.
