Highest Performing Maintenance for NonStop Servers

HP Maintenance

Paul Mercina July 30, 2019

Uptime is the critical measure for data center managers, and customers invest in NonStop systems to achieve five- and six-nines availability.

Anyone with an exacting boss, spouse, or friend may occasionally wish for a little bit more fault tolerance. After all, things go wrong. Fortunately for data center managers, fault tolerance has been the modus operandi for NonStop since the 1970s, before personal computers even existed. The servers have long been favorites among financial services, telecommunications, and other industries for which failure is not an option.

Now under the purview of Hewlett-Packard Enterprise and part of the Integrity NonStop product line, HPE NonStop hardware continues to be an excellent choice for a long lifespan and will soon benefit from another advantage. As Park Place Technologies recently announced, we are extending our server support services to these workhorses—meaning HPE NonStop customers can benefit from a third party maintenance option as reliable as their hardware.

Coming soon, Park Place’s maintenance capabilities will include the following:

  • NonStop NB series
  • NonStop NS series
  • NonStop S series (Note: S series maintenance will be limited to select models at this time. Contact us for more information about supported systems)

Why Park Place Technologies?

NonStop servers are incredibly self-healing, engineered to avoid single points of failure and designed for automatic failover. This doesn’t make the hardware impervious, however. Maximum uptime can only be sustained if failed components are promptly replaced and other issues resolved as soon as possible.

This is where Park Place comes in to offer the highest performing support contracts in the industry. Our solutions are ideal for mission critical computing environments, including those centered on HPE NonStop servers. Key point to consider:

Park Place support lasts as long as the equipment itself

Various NonStop systems, such as products in the S series, have reached end of support with HPE. This leaves customers few options for retaining the convenience and expertise of a knowledgeable, experienced outside maintenance service provider. With Park Place Technologies, customers can get OEM-or-better quality support at a lower cost, regardless of “end of support life.” Ok, we’ll say it, Park Place won’t stop supporting your NonStop.

These are a few of the factors that set Park Place Technologies apart when it comes to NonStop support. The great news, our service is available globally. So no matter where you are or what level of support you need, we’re ready. Just get in touch.
