WEBINAR - “Integrating OpenVMS I64 with Legacy Applications and Platforms Using Attunity Integration Suite (AIS)”  
Thursday, March 11, 2010, 12:12 PM
Posted by Administrator
On Wednesday, 17 March 2010, the Hewlett-Packard Office of OpenVMS Programs will host a pair of technical webinars.

Ian Archibald, EMEA Pre-sales Director, Attunity will present a technical discussion focusing on how Attunity’s AIS solution provides connectivity and integration from the Integrity platform hosting mission-critical applications and data to Unix/Linux, Windows and legacy platforms such as IBM Mainframe.

A product demonstration will explain how this capability:

  1. Reduces IT costs with server/platform consolidation on Integrity

  2. Enables wrap & reuse vs. rip and replace

  3. Provides interconnectivity between 64-bit applications and 32-bit applications across virtual machines

  4. Uses virtual data federation to create a unified interface across partitions, applications and data types


The webinar will conclude with a Q&A session.

The HP Office of OpenVMS Programs is conducting these webinars in two time zones to cover all of you across the globe. The procedures are the basically same for connecting to either webinar but the links go to different "events" so pick the time you want to attend and follow the link of your choice.

Ever wanted to know more about HP Availability Manager?

On 24 February you will get the chance. Barry Kierstein will present "Overview of Availability Manager Functionality, Installation and Configuration" at 08:00 EST (13:00 GMT). YES, we know this is early but it is a presentation for a worldwide audience. And if it is too early or too late then you can always view the recorded version at the VMS SIG home page on Connect Worldwide.

For those who do not know him, Barry was the project leader of the Availability Manager product at Hewlett-Packard Corporation, where he worked for almost 14 years, and has extensive knowledge of its use and function. Previous to his tenure at Hewlett-Packard in the OpenVMS Engineering group, he was an OpenVMS system manager for the academic computer cluster at a large university for twelve years.

Barry is currently on contract with two companies - Migration Specialties and eCube Systems, working on products for OpenVMS and Alpha systems.

The abstract of the webinar is:

Ever wish you could see the health of all your OpenVMS systems in one window? You can with the Availability Manager, a product developed by OpenVMS engineering. This product presents the performance health of any number of OpenVMS systems, and also analyzes each for any resource contention problems, and also fixes various problems to allow OpenVMS systems to continue functioning.

This webinar will present an overview of the Availability Manager functionality, installation and configuration. Time will be available for questions and answers.

OpenVMS Month - What's Happened...??? What's Happening...??? 
Sunday, February 14, 2010, 05:20 PM
Posted by Administrator
Ever since we were informed of the planned OpenVMS Month by Connect Worldwide in LATE January 2010 we have been scrambling to pull together events, webinars and webcasts which we thought might be of interest to you, the OpenVMS Community. This effort has been driven by a handful of people from the User Community and the Vendor Community to date. As we move forward we are looking to include more vendors and more end users in the process. The central team that has been coordinating this effort has been Michelle Popejoy, Connect OpenVMS SIG; John Apps, HP OpenVMS Ambassador; and myself.

So far this month we have seen the introduction of the Itanium Tukwila or Itanium 9300, depending on your preference. We have had the HP OpenVMS Technology Webinar on GNV and the announcement of OpenVMS Open Source development systems from the HP Office of OpenVMS Programs. Keith Parris and Colin Butcher have presented webinars on clustering and networking respectively. Also, eCube Systems presented a webinar on application modernization utilizing their NXTware Eclipse based development environment. All this and we are just half way through the month. And, yes, some of these presentations we have had not a single thing to with but they have fit our schedule for OpenVMS Month nicely - Thank You, Hewlett-Packard!.

Well to be honest we are not even half way through, as we decided to stretch the OpenVMS Month into March. We had to do this to fit in some very special webinars and events that as of yet we can not announce centering on OpenVMS Version 8.4. Keep watching this space for more information about those sessions.

In the mean time let us tell you about the other events coming in the weeks and months to come. Yes, months as well! Besides all this we are working on developing a regularly scheduled webinar series specifically targeted at the OpenVMS Community.

Between now and the end of February we have as many as TEN webinar sessions available which should be of interest to you in the OpenVMS Community. Most of these events are listed on the Connect Worldwide calendar. These include:

17 February 08:30 GMT and 15:30 GMT, two webinar sessions HP OpenVMS Technology Webinar #5. Presented by HP Office of OpenVMS Programs in conjunction with ISV CipherSoft, Inc.
