Tributary Systems Company and Product News

In 2011, Tributary Systems, Inc. celebrates its 15th continuous year as an OEM product supplier to the HP NonStop Enterprise Division (Tandem and Compaq NSD previously).  As a strategic partner and OEM supplier to HP NED, Tributary tests every release of G, H and J-series OS prior to release to ensure compatibility of ALL Tributary supplied products and solutions with every new version of HP NonStop OS.  In addition, Tributary supplies HP NED with a full suite of backup storage products which include LTO based tape products, automation products and library management software totaling 37 different products.  Please contact your HP NED account manager for detailed information on all tape, automation and library management software solutions available directly from the HP NonStop price book.

Tributary Systems earned its HP NonStop Converged Infrastructure - Ready credentials in May 2011 and is now one of the select group of NonStop vendors that are CI-Ready.

Tributary Systems has backup virtualization solutions to protect your HP NonStop data along with data generated by your IBM and open platform environments.  Tributary’s ViTAL™ solution (for HP NonStop) and Storage Director™ (for all open platforms) are fully integrated backup virtualization solutions with the ability to backup ANY proprietary or open platform host server to ANY tape, de-duplication device, SAN/NAS device or remote site/Disaster recovery site storage device.  ViTAL’s 3.0 release features enhanced replication with de-duplication for remote site/DR replication at a fraction of the cost of external de-duplication devices while offering end-to-end HP NonStop compatibility and single point support.  The issue of accountability during critical support issues when solutions from multiple vendors are deployed in HP NonStop backup environments, particularly using products from HP’s competitors, simply does not exist with Tributary’s ViTAL solution or any solution supplied directly by HP NED.

ViTAL/Storage Director 3.0 



Tributary’s ViTAL solution is highly available with no single point of failure, hardware and software monitoring and predictive failure notification by email and SNMP alerts.  ViTAL, therefore, protects your NonStop data through the backup, recovery, archival and DR process while maintaining the HP NonStop fundamentals of AVAILABILITY (Fault-Tolerance), SCALABILITY and DATA INTEGRITY.  In addition, ViTAL and Stoarge Director bring these benefits of data protection to all other platforms in your datacenter. 

Since Tributary Systems has supplied HP NED with all tape products for the past 15 years, Tributary’s ViTAL solution is completely compatible with all legacy NonStop tape drives, auto-cartridge loaders and tape library solutions in your environment.  ViTAL offers NonStop customers a path to move data away from legacy tape devices into new high performance enterprise disk and tape technologies using both LTO4 and LTO5 formats. 

ViTAL /Storage Director features:

  • Enhanced replication with de-duplication
  • AES encryption with compression
  • Fully automated operation of both virtual front-end and physical back-end devices
  • Advanced Recovery Option (ARO) for higher availability/fault-tolerance
  • Transparent remote backup and restore for off-site requirements and disaster recovery
  • Ability to consolidate tape libraries and drives to lower cost
  • Offer customers a cost-effective migration path away from legacy tape and disk solutions
  • Reduced backup windows enterprise-wide
  • User defined policies direct data migration to any back-end device
  • Industry leading reports, monitoring and alerting for lights-out operations
  • Customized configurations for higher availability and other specific customer needs

Migrate Your Apps to a Converged Infrastructure

People are talking about converged infrastructure left and right, but is anyone actually taking the first step? If you've exposed your NonStop applications as Web services, you have! Web-enabling these applications not only modernizes them, but it also facilitates the migration process--talk about two birds with one stone! Here's how it works: in order to ensure a low-risk migration to the HP BladeSystem Matrix (or any platform), you need to keep your applications running the entire time. To prepare your company for this migration, NuWave Technologies is now offering modernization and converged infrastructure (CI) consulting at a great value.

With NuWave's modernization service, you can have other platforms (including desktops) access information on your NonStop, or you can access data on the internet or intranet from your NonStop application; this opens up your NonStop system to all sorts of new possibilities. Then if you wish to move to a converged infrastructure, we can seemlessly handle this migration for you. Because the move to a platform with integrated software, networking, and storage is complex; we will collaborate with you to prepare for and manage the migration with zero downtime, minimal risk, and without interruption to your operations.

Check out our NonStop consulting page for more information, then email info@nuwave-tech.com to discuss your modernization or migration strategy.


CommitWork presentation “Moving from a J2EE Oracle WebLogic-based application to a NSJSP-based application“ at the HP-Discover 2011

CommitWork invites you to visit the presentation - Moving from a J2EE Oracle WebLogic-based application to a NSJSP-based application“ on June 8 at 3:30 PM (Room Titian 2305).


This presentation describes how a J2EE Oracle WebLogic-based application was ported to a NSJSP-based application on NonStop Server.

The session will start with a historical overview that explains why the porting was necessary, followed by a discussion about advantages and disadvantages of the NSJSP-based solution.

Attendees will learn about technical preconditions, including project architecture, communication, type of J2EE beans and JMS, along with the corresponding solutions in a NSJSP environment. The presentation will conclude with a discussion of the project results.


BASE24 codes resolved

There is a new feature in the Stefi software when it acts as a BASE24 PTLF/TLF/ILF viewer: the software knows the corresponding descriptions of lots of codes, The only thing you have to do (when browsing the log files) is to place the mouse pointer on the code, and the description will appear as a <Hint>. Some of the codes that has this feature:

- POS and ATM Response codes

- VISA, MasterCard and BicIso Response codes   

- Transaction code (T-Cde)                        

- Message type (Typ)                              

- Transaction originator (ORIGINATOR)             

- Transaction responder (RESPONDER)               

- Point of Service Condition Code (PT-SRV-COND-CDE)

- Point of Service Entry Mode (PT-SRV-ENTRY-MDE)  

- Merchant Category Code (RETL-SIC-CDE)

  Hint sample

Stefi is a client-server application providing a Graphical User Interface frontend to NonStop Tedit/Enscribe files and Sql/Mp tables to browse and edit them. It provides a new level to access Enscribe files and also acts as a great Windows client for Sql/Mp tables. It also supports filtered file copy into the windows environment providing txt, Excel (csv), html, MsSql server table output formats.
One of the features is the so called "Enscribe filter", that is constructed on the client and then passed to the server for execution. This way the records can be filtered based on any fields on it.

With the PCRE porting the filters can use Regular Expressions that gives a very flexible way to define comprehensive conditions, especially when filtering the presence and content of BASE24 tokens.

The software has built-in DES/3DES encoding regarding the client-server data communication. It is great, when you have to pass PCI-DSS audits!

The extra support for BASE24 files makes it ideal for BASE24 developers, testers and operators.

Attend HP Discover 2011 and Gravic’s Update on High and Continuous Availability Architectures

Please visit with the Gravic team at Kiosk 190-K in the NonStop Zone at HP Discover 2011 Las Vegas to learn about High and Continuous Availability Architectures, and while there, enter for a chance to win an Amazon Kindle. Also, participate in an exclusive presentation on “Advances in High and Continuous Availability Architectures for NonStop Systems” – Breakout Session 4500, Thursday, June 9, 8-9 am, Room Titian 2303. Even if you have heard us speak before, we have a lot of new information to present. You will learn how technology is evolving quickly to deliver continuous application availability with zero data loss in the event of a disaster. For immediate information please visit: www.gravic.com/shadowbase/uses/continuousavailability.

Session Abstract:

As businesses’ needs have driven higher and higher application availability requirements, various architectures are evolving to meet those needs. We describe new trends in the recovery time and recovery point objectives model that businesses use to quantify their needs, discuss the factors (and trade-offs) that affect each objective, and present various replication architectures in use today to attain these stringent goals. We also describe the next wave of technological advances in the development pipeline to understand how the technology is evolving to eventually deliver true continuous application availability with zero data loss in the event of a disaster. This session defines what is meant by high and continuous application availability in 2011 and beyond, and then focuses on asynchronous and synchronous replication technologies that support disaster recovery (active/passive) architectures as well as the more sophisticated bi-directional active/active architectures. During the session, several case studies of deployed implementations will be presented, highlighting the advantages and limitations of each.

Crystal Point Software and Services

Save Time and Increase Accuracy

Member Access Pacific and Crystal Point’s Custom Development Services leverage

OutsideView 8.1 .NET API

May, 2011: Member Access Pacific (MAP) is the nation's only aggregator of the Visa® Debit Processing Service platform for credit unions. Committed to the credit union movement, MAP's special role in the marketplace provides their client credit unions unique opportunities to leverage the Technology, Security, and Service of Visa® for their members.

As their business grew, MAP’s Gift Card and Prepaid Card Activity Report from VISA DPS expanded to over 400 on-line pages.  An Accounting and Settlements Department operator would page through the entire report, manually generating individual customer reports, reconciling transactions of different natures, and generating mail-ready documents for each customer.  This was obviously a very tedious process, requiring 3-to- 4 hours a day to complete and vulnerable to human error.  

MAP set goals for a new settlement system:

·        Reduce time for performing daily settlements

·        Eliminate room for human error

·        Establish consistency in prepaid settlements reports

·        Have flexibility in adjusting structure of reports

Member Access Pacific contacted Crystal Point to see if they had connectivity automation tools to help.  Learning of the powerful .NET automation capability newly available in OutsideView 8.1, MAP retained Crystal Point to create a utility automating the export and formatting of the settlement report.  

Crystal Point software and services enabled MAP developers to create a .NET Windows form application (Utility Export Tool) to automate the settlement process. The application paged through the report and parsed the content, and routed pertinent information into various data tables.  The different data tables provided a means of grouping and organizing the data.  One of the data tables even provided a layout view of how the summary report would look in terms of structure and content prior to being exported to an Excel workbook.

Nikolay Martynov, Business Development Coordinated states, “The Utility Export Tool provided by Crystal Point helps to generate customer reports in minutes.  MAP is able to adjust the structure of reports when needed and provide reports with good consistency and clear structure.  Member Access Pacific is proud to take settlement services to a new level and serve our clients in a better way.”

 “Crystal Point Staff is extremely knowledgeable about their products and services. They were always ready to go the extra mile to educate our company how to use its products and utilize the full potential of the developed software.   Member Access Pacific is pleased with the provided results. All goals were achieved. Crystal Point stayed on track and within budget.   It takes resources to polish things to perfection and Crystal Point performed additional testing to ensure that the developed product works great and all client goals are met”.

Crystal Point has been providing host connectivity to the NonStop community since 1986.

Availability Digest Explores Crisis Communication When Data Centers Go Kaput


When disaster strikes your data center, that is not the time to begin planning for how to deal with the press.  The Availability Digest’s May issue includes media-relations tips designed to avoid some of the communication oversights made in recent years by companies such as Research in Motion and Salesforce. 

Also in this month’s Digest:

-  Talk about “unavailability.”  Sony’s Qriocity™ services and the PlayStation® Network have been out of action since April 20th due to what has become one of the biggest hacking stories to-date.  Although Sony first indicated that its services might be down for a few days, the company is only now beginning a phased restoration on a country-by-country basis. 

-  Another “Never Again” story involves a fat finger that downed Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).  On April 21st, an error during normal maintenance activity took down an entire Availability Zone in Amazon’s U.S.-East Region.  The Region’s other three Availability Zones also were affected even though they were supposed to be independent.  Not until April 24th was the U.S- East Region fully returned to service. 

-  Of the over 800 sessions at HP’s Discover 2011, an impressive number focus on high availability.  This issue of the Digest lists those sessions so that you can readily identify availability topics to meet your needs

Digest Managing Editor Dr. Bill Highleyman will present two availability sessions at Discover 2011.  We encourage you to attend “So You Think Your Data Center is Safe” (Session #3888) and “Does Data Replication Eliminate Backups” (Session #3870).

Published monthly, the Digest is free and lives at www.availabilitydigest.com.  Please visit our Continuous Availability Forum on LinkedIn.  We’re at 257 members and counting. 


Looking Ahead

The summer’s coming, and it won’t be too long before the Fourth of July, Thanksgiving and Christmas return to stress our systems.  It’s not too soon to begin planning for the upcoming peak season.

Hopefully you have the numbers:  How hard the CPUs, disks, processes, etc. were working during the last Fourth of July, Thanksgiving and Christmas. How many TPS were being processed.  How quickly were the external (to the NonStop) services and external partners responding to requests.  How uniform and predictable was their service.

By this time you should also have: Year to date growth rate of the demand. Changes in the patterns of the demand.  And an understanding of how the business will be changing between now and the end of the year.

Put it all together, or ask us to do it, and you’ll have another good, profitable, and quiet holiday.

LinkedIn’s Enscribe to SQL Migration Forum is at 47 Members and Counting

LinkedIn’s Enscribe to SQL Migration Forum is only a month old, but it already has attracted 47 members. The forum’s first thread focused on whether a barrier to Enscribe to SQL migration efforts was a lack of skilled Enscribe and SQL staff. If you have input on that subject and would like to contribute, we invite your participation.

Our newest thread requests feedback from individuals who have been involved in an Enscribe to SQL migration effort. Did you participate in an incremental migration or a Big Bang effort? Can you share with Forum members some DOs and DON’Ts about your experiences?

The Enscribe to SQL Migration Forum is open to those individuals and HP NonStop customers who have made the migration from Enscribe to SQL, who are considering doing so, or who have decided for whatever reason to avoid the migration process. Here is an opportunity to discuss with peers both migration success stories and the challenges faced by those who make the migration effort. We also welcome the valuable input of HP NonStop staff.

The Forum is hosted by TANDsoft, Inc., creator of the Enscribe-2-SQL Toolkit. The Toolkit permits easy, unlimited conversion of Enscribe calls to SQL/MP or SQL/MX statements. It offers a flexible, affordable alternative to more expensive products or manual techniques with no program changes to the application. Supported are both file-by-file and application-by-application incremental migration.

TANDsoft’s “best of breed, best in price” philosophy offers highly competitive value for all TANDsoft solutions. In addition to the Enscribe-2-SQL Toolkit, they include the OPTA2000 virtual clock and time-zone simulator, the TMF-Audit Toolkit, FileSync for automatic file synchronization and replication, and Command Stream Replicator, which automatically replicates DDL structure and other environment changes to target systems – changes and settings that normally are not replicated because they sit outside the TMF Audit Trail. TANDsoft products require minimal or no application modifications and are available for all HP NonStop servers. Visit www.tandsoft.com, or call us at +1 (514) 695-2234.

Musings on NonStop!

May, ‘11

The opinions expressed here are solely
those of the now self-employed author

Welcome to a revised format! In the coming months it will likely evolve further as I come to terms with the various social media channels I support these days, and I will be focusing on highlights for these posts and providing links to keep you better informed of my many musings on topics all related to NonStop. Anyone even remotely associated with NonStop who has visited a LinkedIn Group will have most likely seen a short promotional item about one post or another of mine at some point.

Which raises the topic of just how many LinkedIn Groups do you belong to? And how often do you check for updates as to what’s going on?

Of late, I have been watching many pretty closely and I have begun the process of leaving – where there’s less than 100 members or thereabouts, and where it looks as if I am the sole contributor, it’s a good sign that, as my former boss often opined, “the gig’s up!” For those who created groups there were only positive expectations about seeing them develop a readership but like anything associated with the media, it’s all about content!

In the weeks to come, expect to see other blogs and groups appear as I am electing to get more involved with some of the better-known vendors active in the NonStop marketplace. Apart from my own “Real Time View” group as well as “Pyalla Technologies” and the sub-groups “Clouds, Powered by NonStop” and “Pyalla Track Days” (a specialty place tracking my favorite pastime!) I manage the comForte Lounge group. Two other groups will be added to this list shortly so watch for additional commentary as they appear.

There’s never any guarantee that these new groups will become popular and the discussions widely read, but the point today is that whatever your favorite site turns out to be, there should be some good reference material on what is current and topical among the community that is NonStop. And LinkedIn groups will continue to appear and disappear – that’s the beauty (and significance) of this media –their livelihoods are determined through your readership and active participation.

Have you followed the three part postings on modernization just posted to comForte Lounge blog and promoted on the similarly named LinkedIn group? Have you checked out what I expect to see occur to bring in more vendors (and users) to the NonStop platform in the post to Real Time View and again, promoted on the similarly named LinkedIn group? In future musings to this eNewsletter I will be focusing on the subjects I am addressing, all with the intent of providing the readership with a synopsis of what’s been addressed over the past 30 days … after all, one of the most frequently asked questions is where do you go to find out what’s been covered of late!

So with this, I hope you continue to support this eNewsletter and that you develop the habit of turning to these musings to remain well-informed on the happenings around the NonStop community!
