Global Leaders Turn to HP to Ensure Continuous Availability
HP today announced that leading global companies continue to choose its Converged Infrastructure for their most mission-critical computing needs – helping ensure their businesses can stay running 24/7.
Clients in a variety of industries from healthcare and finance to online media choose HP Integrity systems to achieve 24/7 fault-tolerant resiliency, always-on application availability and the industry’s premier service levels. This is vital for customers that need secure access to critical medical records, scalable management of global telephony networks and on-demand customer support for core financial applications.
HP delivers continuous data and application availability
Systems integrator Daiwa Institute of Research Business Innovation Ltd. has depended on HP NonStop technology for nearly 14 years. Daiwa uses a new extension of the HP Integrity NonStop BladeSystem family with the quad-core NB54000c to provide on-demand application access.
Built on a common modular and bladed architecture, the new NB54000c ensures zero downtime using proven innovations such as HP ServerNet, an interconnect fabric technology used for fault-tolerant scalability and self-configuring server clustering. Clients can continue to deploy dual-core HP NonStop BladeSystem servers or upgrade to a quad-core HP Integrity NB54000c server with a simple in-cabinet blade swap to gain twice the performance in the same enclosure.
“The NB54000c provides a reliable billing system at a significantly lower cost than other vendors, allowing our company to create new and innovative services faster than our competitors,” said Takeshi Yonehana, deputy general manager, System Infrastructures Management Dept., Daiwa Institute of Research Business Innovation Ltd. “Daiwa relies on NonStop for our mission-critical and large data applications associated with billing; its high availability has ensured zero downtime since our first installation in 1997. We will continuously improve our solutions and services to meet customer requirements.”
HP delivers connectivity
Long-time HP client and global media giant AOL processes nearly 3 billion emails each day. Continuous availability of core authentication and mail services is critical to AOL’s success. AOL relies on the HP Integrity NonStop BladeSystem to ensure all transactions are accurately completed and there is no interruption to its services to customers. As a result, AOL users can confidently change passwords, access billing information or change service levels at any time.
