Welcome & Introductions

HPE Presentation: "Blockchain/Bitcoin/DLT", Matt Riesz
Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) is quite new, and it’s evolving into something that could transform value exchange as profoundly as the internet transformed information exchange. In this presentation we’ll look at the technologies and how they’re being used. We will explore some of the challenges presented by blockchain technologies and how NonStop is especially well-suited to address them.

NuWave Presentation: "Open Up Your NonStop Using REST Services", Gabrielle Guerrera

RESTful web APIs are ubiquitous—everyone is using them. Learn how easy it is to integrate NonStop applications with applications and services on any platform, including IoT devices. This presentation will provide an overview, uses cases, and demos to show how your NonStop applicationscan provide and consume REST Web services in a snap . LightWave Server allows you to expose your existing NSK or Pathway servers as industry-standard REST services. These services can then be accessed using JSON messaging by REST clients running on virtually any computing platform, including IoT devices. LightWave Client allows applications running on NonStop servers to securely access REST Web services anywhere, on any platform or operating system through the NSK interprocess message (IPM) system.

Afternoon Break

Availability Digest: "The Hazard of Fat Fingers", Dr. Bill Highleyman
Many outages of IT systems are caused by human error. In our presentation, we describe several real-life instances in which people have caused critical systems to crash by entering erroneous commands. The outages were all preventable by using a simple procedure. We explain the technique and encourage companies to use this method in the future to prevent outages due to fat fingers.

HPE Presentation: "Virtualized NonStop (vNS) and Other New Products", John Vollers & Peter Schvarcz
HPE NED is pleased to announce the general availability of the HPE Virtualized NonStop (vNS) software product. This marks the first step of HPE's strategy of enabling HPE NonStop software for deployment in modern cloud environments.

The presentation will discuss how the NonStop Architecture is implemented as an IaaS environment using industry standard x86 servers, networking and storage products, defined by the HPE Virtualized NonStop hardware reference architecture.  With Virtualized NonStop, you may now instantiate, deploy and manage NonStop systems as an IaaS environment using OpenStack services such as Nova, Cinder, Neutron, Glance and Horizon.
