HPE NonStop Review

Provides system availability and fault-tolerance. I would like see the ability to port other applications in a plug-and-play manner.

What is most valuable?

  • Fault-Tolerance
  • Availability
  • Performance

How has it helped my organization?

It helps us to keep the business running 24/7. Our client is a bank and we need to run the show continuously. Availability is the key factor along with fault-tolerance. The system/application should be fault proof to withstand software/hardware failures and run 24/7 without downtime. Along with this performance, the current market situation demands that customers are not kept waiting.

These factors are pretty important for me while making a decision or designing the architecture.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see better scalability. I would like see them make it easier to port other applications in a plug-and-play manner.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used it for eleven years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

There have been no stability issues. These are the most stable servers in the fault-tolerance space.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

There were some scalability issues. When we decided to migrate an application or port application, the limitations of these servers didn't help us.

How is customer service and technical support?

I would give technical support a rating of 8/10.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

HPE NonStop is expensive now. However, with a new solution of HPE NonStop on Xeon Processors and vNonStop, I am sure that the cost will come down drastically.
