Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Compaq has formally announced its NonStop Himalaya Solution Server for Decision Support Systems (DSS Server). The product, formerly sold under the Tandem name, includes software needed for DSS environments, for mid and large scale systems from 250Gb to a terabyte. According to David Russell, the NonStop product marketing manager at Compaq UK, said: "DSS Server is the first of a series of new products that underscore Compaq's commitment to drive NonStop Himalaya servers iinto new application areas." He said that DSS Server will now allow customers with smaller databases to deploy a scaleable solution. Although the Himalaya range currently uses MIPS S70000 chips, in 4-way, 8-way or sixteen way configurations, Russell said two weeks ago that the chip architecture will change at the beginning of the next century. ®
