MPE Solutions

Extending Application Capabilities and Information Availability to Legacy Systems for Ease of Use and Efficiency

For the MPE environment, Quest extends application capabilities and information availability to legacy systems with middleware, high availability and output management solutions.

  • For middleware, we define a common gateway to open systems environments that are flexible and easy to use; this allows heterogeneous platforms and RDBMS or file structures to work together with seamless efficiency.
  • For high availability, we create an open systems environment with real-time access to mission-critical data through application shadowing, network file access, data distribution, and disaster recovery.
  • For output management, we create instant access to reports for viewing and printing on local and remote printers, minimizing costs as users generate copies for only the information they need, when they need it.

  • BridgeWare
    A cooperative endeavor of Quest Software and Taurus Software that enables data movement between HP 3000 and open systems.

Continuous Data Synchronization

Automatically synchronize data from HP 3000 to open systems for one-time data migration. Move data to data warehouses, data marts or new open system applications. Consolidate data into a centralized common database or data warehouse.

  • SharePlex Bridge
    Bridges MPE legacy systems and open systems to provides real-time or scheduled capture of transaction data on MPE.

Capture and Export of Transaction Data

Do real-time or scheduled capture of transaction data on MPE.  Move data from MPE to virtually any target data structure on any platform with the ability to integrate output into a custom application or any of the standard data warehousing or data movement tools.

  • NetBase Client
    Provides a central console from which to manipulate all data types so end users can share data across the network.

Interfacing with Client/Server Technology

We enable legacy systems to interface with open systems. This allows you to quickly implement applications that are tightly integrated with existing HP 3000 systems using simple recompiles with DLLs to cut development time in half.

  • NFS/iX
    Allows HP 3000 systems to coexist with open systems in the same network through transparent access to and from its file system.

Network File System Access

We provide reliable and flexible file sharing capabilities supporting virtually every computer platform, including MPE.

High Availability

We allow you to create an open systems environment with real-time access to mission-critical data through application shadowing, network file access, data distribution, and disaster recovery.  Learn more about High Availability Solutions for MPE »

  • NetBase Shadowing
    Ensures continuous uptime by transparently replicating data in real time across the corporate WAN to one or more machines.

Increased Fault Tolerance

We provide a reliable shadow system to sustain the 24x7 availability of identical data and enable essential disaster recovery for HP 3000 systems.

  • NetBase NFA
    Enables applications designed to run on a single computer to be easily distributed across multiple computers.

Application Access and Control Over Multiple Systems

We help you maximize networking performance by minimizing individual network transactions, allowing for modular growth with zero down time.

  • AutoRPM
    Provides built-in interface from the NetBase central directory to remote process management (RPM) supported by Hewlett-Packard.

Automated Remote Process Management

We enable system administrators to automatically forward programs to run only on a given system on the network where software licenses exist. This significantly reduces licensing costs and improves system performance by spreading CPU utilization among several systems.

  • NetBase Statistics
    Predicts performance for proposed network changes and presents the file access statistics in a clear and concise format.

Network Data Delivery and Analysis

We provide comprehensive data to maximize system performance, specifying details at the process and user levels. You get accurate records of network file access, process and network overhead, system location, and file access response times that are essential to successful networking planning.

  • Quark+
    Compresses many file types, including directory and user environment information, and stores them in a single compressed format.

Fast File Compression

We deliver archiving capabilities built from the same file compression features as PK Zip™. You get timely remote resynchronization of data on a shadowed system and remote-system environment re-creation from the source system.

  • AllBase Shadowing
    Works in concert with HP’s AllBase Replication product to enable replication of AllBase RDBMS over a LAN or WAN to another HP 3000 system.

AllBase RDBMS Replication

We provide a fully functional replication engine to the HP 3000 platform, allowing all tables to be replicated by running read-only reports against the target data.

  • NetBase NBCopy
    Enables you to easily make exact copies of many different types of files on the same system or remote systems without the need for remote sessions.

Copying Without Remote Sessions

We enable you to make copies of a variety of files without NS 3000 services, increasing your return on investment. Choose from several options for modifying the new copy during the copying process for speedy, cost-efficient remote file distribution for HP 3000.

Output Management

We create instant access to reports for viewing and printing on local and remote printers, minimizing costs as users generate copies for only the information they need, when they need it.  Learn more about Output Management Solutions for MPE »
