What's New

  • A discreet CPU architecture with a modern form factor of rack-mounted servers, different from the previous generation of x86-based HPE NonStop systems.
  • Upgraded microprocessors with Intel® vulnerability mitigations in silicon.
  • Increased raw bandwidth using modern InfiniBand (IB) system interconnect technology. Integration with IB delivers nearly twice the system interconnect capacity for responding to business growth.2

Key Features

Engineered for the Highest Availability Levels for Business

HPE NonStop NS8 systems are designed for high availability - Availability Level 4 (as defined by IDC), where business processes are not impacted by component failure, meaning no interruption of work and no degradation in performance.1

The HPE NonStop architecture remains the ideal choice for compute environments that has supported continuous business for more than four decades, providing extreme fault tolerance and reliability.1

The HPE NonStop NS8 x4 system features x86 architecture which divides workloads among independent processors, so you can leverage a proven solution for uninterrupted business that delivers timeless value, and is always-on and always-adapting.

Massive Scale Out Capacity to Grow and Flex with your Business Needs

The HPE NonStop NS8 X4 system can scale out to match growing business demands, with the capacity to handle processing-intensive workloads. Starting with as few as two NonStop CPUs, a single HPE NonStop NS8 node can grow up to sixteen (16) NonStop CPUs.

The HPE NonStop NS8 X4 system offers 2-, 4-, or 6-core software licensing options. When licensed at the 6-core option, the HPE NonStop NS8 X4 provides almost three times the performance capacity of the HPE Integrity NonStop BladeSystem NB56000c licensed at its maximum 4-core option.3

With HPE NonStop’s Dynamic Capacity licensing, you can temporarily increase your compute capacity by an additional 2-cores per NonStop CPU. When you no longer need the additional capacity, you simply return the system licensing to its original state. These changes can be done completely online.

A single HPE NonStop NS8 X4 node can support up to 4 TB of main memory (RAM). With NonStop Expand-over-IP, the HPE NonStop NS8 can be networked with up to 255 nodes. This represents an impressive scale out factor up to 4080 CPUs and more than 24,000 cores - supported by up to ~1 PB of memory.

Multiple NonStop NS8 systems (nodes) can be clustered together in a tight interconnection using the HPE NonStop X Cluster Solution (NSXCS) with the InfiniBand technology. Supports mixed NSXCS environments with NS8 and NS7 systems.

Customizable, Fully-integrated, Turnkey Solution

In addition to the CPU configurations and core-licensing choices, customers can customize the I/O attached to the HPE NonStop NS8 X4 system. While supporting up to 56 I/O controllers, customers can choose between the IP, Telco, and Storage CLIMs, depending on their specific requirements.

After placing a customized order with the help of our HPE Solution Architects, your system is built and tested prior to leaving the manufacturing floor. The result is a fully fault tolerant, out-of-the-box platform ready for you on which to install your business and mission critical applications.

The Advantages of the NonStop Software Stack

The HPE NonStop NS8 X4 system features the NonStop software stack which 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 NS8 X4 system is offered with the L-series version of the NonStop Operating System. This NonStop software stack has been enhanced to fully leverage the x86 architecture and it uses InfiniBand technology to improve software performance throughout the system.

Security and time synchronization software are included with the OS. HPE NonStop SQL/MX and other DB products are available on the HPE NonStop NS8 X4 system with all the features for massive scalability, ANSI/Oracle® compatibility, online DB administration, and end-to-end transactional integrity.

Middleware products and Java/Java-related frameworks are available. The NonStop Development Environment for Eclipse (NSDEE) and compilers are enhanced with x86 architecture in mind. New customers will find NSDEE friendly and familiar to their application developers.

HPE NonStop is also taking great strides in application modernization with DevOps. NonStop is now as flexible and easy as any modern IT platform in your data center since modern DevOps tools such as Git®, Ansible, and Jenkins can be used to develop applications on NonStop.
