Opening up a world of possibilities
Representing the entry-class offering of the HPE NonStop X family, the NS3 is available with two or four NonStop CPUs. Offered for the first time in an entry-class NonStop system, the NS3 provides the flexibility to choose either 1 or 2-core software licensing per NonStop CPU. It combines the economies of newly-enhanced, standards-based, modular computing with the trusted 24x7 fault-tolerant availability and data integrity of the HPE NonStop architecture. The enhanced availability, manageability, and development features of HPE NonStop result in a low total cost of ownership (TCO) for hosting mission-critical applications. This applies equally to all generations of the NS3 including the NS3 X1, X2, and X3.
25 times increase in system interconnect capacity
At the heart of the NS3 is a system interconnect based upon industry standard InfiniBand. The NS3 leverages the modular efficiencies of the industry-leading HPE BladeSystem c7000 Platinum Enclosure with 4X FDR (Fourteen Data Rate) InfiniBand double-wide switches to create the foundation for the NS3 system interconnect. These switches, based on a dual fault-tolerant switched fabric, provide up to 56 Gbps bidirectional bandwidth to each NonStop CPU and throughout the system for extreme scalability, fabric flexibility, high throughput, and low latency.
Powered by Intel Xeon processors
The HPE NonStop X NS3, built on proven HPE ProLiant BL460c server blades, is powered by Intel Xeon series processors and supports up to 64 GB of memory per NonStop CPU, with single system (node) maximum memory capacity of 256 GB.
Providing uninterrupted access to information and services
The NS3 system can be configured with two or four NonStop CPUs in a factory-integrated, fully-tested and verified configuration. Multiple systems can be connected together via Ethernet with entry-class IP Cluster I/O Modules (CLIMs) or with entry-class Telco CLIMs to support M3UA, Diameter, and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) protocols. Disk storage is managed by entry-class Storage CLIMs. Configured with up to eight powerful I/O adapters, these entry-class CLIMs provide evenly matched performance for the NS3 platform as they decrease the load on the host processor to balance overall performance, and shorten response times.
The advantage of the NonStop software stack
HPE NonStop systems (including the NS3) have been designed from day one with an integrated software stack that supports fault tolerance. The NonStop software stack includes the NonStop OS and the OSS file system, security, system management, middleware, Java and Java-frameworks, a modern development environment, and one of the most scalable fault-tolerant databases in the world.
The HPE NonStop X is offered with the L-series version of the NonStop Operating System. The NonStop X software stack has been optimized to take advantage of the x86 architecture and use InfiniBand technology to improve software performance throughout the system. Security and time synchronization software are included with the OS. HPE NonStop SQL/MX and SQL/MP database products are available on NonStop X with all the latest features for massive scalability. Middleware products are available, as are Java and Java-related frameworks. The NonStop Development Environment for Eclipse (NSDEE) and compilers are enhanced with x86 architecture in mind.

- Up to 255 NonStop systems (nodes), with up to 4,080 NonStop CPUs either co-located or geographically distributed for disaster tolerance.
HPE Nonstop Software:
Modern application development environment
Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) make it easier for most developers to create and maintain application programs. With that in mind, HPE NonStop has invested in bringing these modern environments to the NonStop application community
- Apache MyFaces (presentation services)
- Axis2 (web services)
- Spring (business services)
- Hibernate (persistence services)
As a result, these open source frameworks have been widely adopted by Java developers, and in many cases have become the de facto technology for developing enterprise Java applications largely replacing EJB technology. HPE has tested and certified these frameworks for deployment on HPE NonStop. Sample programs, recommended configuration parameter values, and detailed user guides have been published. The Eclipse IDE has optional plug-ins to aid in Java development.
Framework-based applications are container agnostic. Applications can run on a lightweight web container like Tomcat or on a full-fledged Java EE application server like JBoss Application Server. This allows the choice of deployment server that is best suited for the server platform.
Modern application development tools
The NonStop build tools and compilers have been integrated into both the Microsoft Visual Studio with the Enterprise Toolkit (ETK) NonStop Edition and into Eclipse with NonStop Development Environment for Eclipse (NSDEE). These tools, including Certified Java SE Platform (JDK and JVM) and Apache Tomcat, help improve the productivity of new HPE NonStop developers. Many optional components and additional tools are available as plug-ins for each IDE.
From a business perspective, the service-oriented architecture (SOA) model can help IT be more responsive to changing business needs, thereby improving business agility. HPE NonStop can play an important role in an SOA architecture as a first-class platform for the provision of SOA services.
Using the HPE NonStop system in this role brings the values of application and scalability, availability, data integrity, and ease of manageability to SOA services—without special programming.
The HPE NonStop system SOA product technologies provide the necessary capabilities for service access, invocation, and implementation.
HPE iTP WebServer
HPE iTP WebServer software provides the HTTP and HTTPS protocol service for all the other SOA components. Built on the HPE NonStop Transaction Services/MP (NonStop TS/MP) infrastructure, iTP WebServer software provides a fault-tolerant and scalable container for web service execution, hosting both NonStop SOAP and NonStop Servlets for JSP components.
HPE NonStop SOAP
HPE NonStop SOAP software supports the standard SOAP 1.2 protocol. The combination of iTP WebServer and NonStop SOAP software provides the standard SOAP over HTTP protocol for invoking SOA services on the HPE NonStop system. NonStop SOAP is built on HPE NonStop TS/MP infrastructure and is fault tolerant and scalable.
HPE NonStop Application Server for Java
The HPE NonStop Application Server for Java (NSASJ) includes the Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) Container and the web container modules of the JBoss AS. The built-in capabilities of Enterprise JavaBeans enable developers to concentrate solely on their business logic, rather than worry about platform dependence and related functionalities such as transaction integrity, data persistence, and availability. NSASJ is designed as an HPE NonStop Transaction Services/Massively Parallel (TS/MP) serverclass. Because it is a serverclass, NSASJ is continuously available and offers near-linear scalability on the HPE NonStop system.
HPE NonStop Servlets for JavaServer Pages (JSP)
HPE NonStop Servlets for JSP software is a fortified version of the Apache Tomcat web container that exhibits NonStop availability and scalability while supporting the standard Java Platform Enterprise Edition (JEE) Servlets and JSP programming models. NonStop Servlets for JSP software runs as a scalable serverclass using the iTP WebServer and NonStop TS/MP infrastructure. This integrated environment transparently inherits the scalability, reliability, and fault tolerance of the HPE NonStop system.
Open source Apache Axis2/Java software can be used in conjunction with the scalable NonStop Servlets for JSP container to implement either Java service adapters or Java SOA business processes. In addition, the JToolkit for NonStop Servers software enables easy access to Pathway servers and Enscribe flat file data from Java-based SOA services.
HPE Pathway with NonStop TS/MP
HPE Pathway with NonStop TS/MP software provides application server functionality that allows businesses to develop and deploy business-critical OLTP applications on HPE NonStop systems.
Using Pathway enables developers to concentrate on implementing their business logic without having to be concerned about common application services, such as load balancing, communications I/O, memory management, fault tolerance, and threading and scheduling. All these common services are provided by the Pathway application server software.
Database and Transaction Management:
HPE NonStop SQL is the mainstream database product for the HPE NonStop systems. NonStop SQL has been fundamentally architected as a clustered database system. It is designed to leverage the HPE NonStop tightly integrated, shared-nothing, massively parallel platform architecture and deploys the fault-tolerant model for immediate and transparent takeover for unparalleled reliability, availability, and scalability. It supports management of massive, multi-terabyte databases as a single database image and delivers high performance in a cluster environment. HPE NonStop SQL provides:
- Outstanding scalability—As the size of data volume, number of concurrent users or sessions, and query workloads and complexity for your database grow, you can add more computing power to the NonStop cluster and increase throughput linearly at greater than 98 percent.
- Continuous availability—The NonStop platform and NonStop SQL provide out-of-the-box database and application availability. There is no complex configuration required to achieve true 24x7 availability. Routine database administration (DBA) tasks can be done online without requiring the database and application to be brought down.
- Application portability—NonStop SQL supports industry standards (ANSI SQL, JDBC, ODBC) as well as numerous extensions to support porting of database applications from other platforms. The SQL/MX db for NonStop X also supports database compatibility, which makes it easier to port applications with popular dbs to the NonStop X platform.
- Automatic load balancing—NonStop SQL offers query and data virtualization capabilities, enabling an environment that pools and optimizes all resources at the application level. With built-in clustering, automatic workload balancing, and online management, organizations using NonStop SQL can seamlessly accommodate rapid growth without adding labor costs, compromising on service levels, or causing user disruption.
- Lower database administration costs—NonStop SQL database is distributed among multiple nodes of a cluster and is presented to the DBA and users as a single, clustered database image. The DBA’s tasks are not daunting or time consuming and don’t require highly specialized skills, thus managing a clustered database is no different from managing a non-clustered environment.
The tight integration between the HPE NonStop SQL database management system and the HPE NonStop Operating System enables absolute control over a concurrent mixed-workload environment, making the NonStop SQL database unique in effectively handling all types of workloads executing concurrently across a potentially very large cluster. HPE NonStop OS plays a critical role in allocating processor, disk, and I/O resources in an environment where competing priorities have to be dynamically monitored and processes deemed to be of the highest priority need to be given precedence. Additionally, many key NonStop SQL database operations take place at the operating system level, which in turn leads to increased efficiencies that have a positive impact on very large database (VLDB) and real-time database performance.
The ANSI SQL-compliant HPE NonStop SQL database can be accessed using Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) 3.0 and Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) Type 4 interfaces from Microsoft Windows and Linux platforms, and an on-platform JDBC Type 2 driver and Open System Services (OSS) ODBC/MX driver. There are more recent enhancements as well. The drivers and ODBC server provide a highly reliable, 24x7 available and scalable connectivity solution that is standards-compliant and engineered for high performance and throughput, and well integrated with HPE NonStop database servers.
To ensure database integrity, the HPE NonStop Operating System integrates closely with HPE NonStop Transaction Management Facility (NonStop TMF) software, which provides distributed two-phase commit protection for global database changes across all affected HPE NonStop systems.
HPE NonStop TMF software is designed to help protect a database from intentional or accidental damage. With NonStop TMF software, a failure in an application, system, or network component does not result in a corrupted database because of a partially completed database update. Before an update changes the database, an image of every affected record or row is captured in memory and written to an audit log. If any part of an update fails or is programmatically aborted, NonStop TMF software automatically backs out the change in its entirety, returning the database to its state just prior to the start of that change.
HPE NonStop Remote Database Facility (NonStop RDF) software extends the HPE NonStop system’s legendary fault tolerance to disaster tolerance. By geographically dispersing HPE NonStop systems, NonStop RDF software allows critical applications to survive a total site failure without specialized programming.
Using the transaction log generated by HPE NonStop TMF software, database changes are instantaneously replicated to one or more target systems, no matter how many transactions per second your application generates. If a primary database becomes inaccessible for any reason, processing can continue using the backup database with minimal service disruption or data loss.
