Unisys accelerates data center transformation where 'change is the only constant'

06 Oct 16

Unisys has released its ClearPath OS 2200 operating-environment software for the company's ClearPath Forward Dorado.

OS 2200 Release 17.0 is an integrated, fully tested stack of 107 software components, with many feature updates that the company says derived from direct suggestions by its user community.

According to Unisys, release 17.0 includes enhanced data analytics and automation that will help to accelerate data center transformation.

These updated analytics and automation capabilities work to adapt OS 2200-based data centers for digital business.

“For example, improved query performance in the Relational Data Management System (RDMS) database leads to faster data access, enhancing support for business operations requiring data warehousing and online analytical processing,” a company statement read.

The company has also identified significant performance and scaling improvements to the Message Control Bank (MCB) communications processing capability. Unisys affirms that these updates make it possible to increase OS 2200 application workloads - without impacting performance or system limits.

Those enhancements particularly support the higher transaction rates, increased number of concurrently running transactions and potential for a larger number of messages in the system queue, therein improving performance in advanced data analytics applications.

The new version of the Operations Sentinel data-center management solution also increases capabilities for automated monitoring of an organization's IT infrastructure, Unisys says this includesWindows 10 and Microsoft Windows Server 2016, ClearPath Forward ePortal for OS 2200 implementations, and backup/restore facilities.

Brian Herkalo, director of ClearPath Forward Solutions at Unisys, says in a marketplace where change is the only constant, their clients maintain a long-term commitment to OS 2200

“OS 2200 Release 17.0 honors Unisys' commitment to continue adding value by providing the greater security, openness, mobility, scalability and flexibility our clients need to remain successful as their business evolves."
