Enterprise information-processing requirements are growing exponentially. According to a 2011 research report from the
"Right now, disruptive trends such as growing numbers of smart devices and increased use of software-as-a-service and other cloud-based solutions are multiplying transaction loads and driving information-processing levels even higher," said
High-Powered New Servers Meet the Highest Transaction Requirements
The new ClearPath Dorado and ClearPath Libra 800 Series servers are designed to handle rapid transaction, networking and storage growth across a range of industries, including transportation, government, telecommunications, financial services, insurance and utilities.
The ClearPath Dorado 800 Series, comprising six new models, enables clients to migrate applications transparently across multiple generations of the Dorado server line and reduce total cost of ownership.
The Dorado 800 Series improves processor performance up to 70 percent and I/O performance up to 740 percent over predecessor models Dorado 280 and 380.(2)
The new two-model ClearPath Libra 800 Series provides hard partitioning so clients can configure a server as a single system or one with multiple independent environments. The new models feature processor performance up to 50 percent higher and I/O performance up to 59 percent higher than predecessor Libra models 585, 680 and 780.
Some models in each of the two new ClearPath series offer traditional performance-based pricing, while others use metering, a pay-for-use system software licensing capability that enables clients to pay only for the processing power they use.
New Software Enhances Application Modernization and Mobility Support
This tight integration enables the new environment to be deployed on previous and future generations of ClearPath systems, relieving clients of the need to perform system integration themselves while enabling them to preserve and build on their prior investments in mission-critical infrastructure and applications.
By enhancing the operating environments,
For example, the ClearPath ePortal for MCP and the ClearPath ePortal for OS 2200 now provide integrated support for a growing array of mobile devices, complementing the Apple iPhone support the engine already provided. The enhancement of the ClearPath ePortal engines gives clients new ways to create more modern interfaces for enterprise applications without changing the applications themselves. It also provides mobile workers access to application resources through a broader range of familiar looks-and-feels.
The ClearPath Dorado 800 Series and all software enhancements are available immediately. The ClearPath Libra 800 Series and the XPC-L3 are scheduled for availability in June and
