Web Service Access to HPE NonStop Just Got Easier

NuWave Product Logos_NuWave Server LogoHPE Nonstop platforms host businesses’ “crown jewel” applications, ranging from OLTP systems to “book of record” databases. However, these applications typically have minimal exposure to internal systems and third-party applications.

An easy way to provide a manageable and secure interaction with these applications is through a REST-based interface.

LightWave ServerTM allows users to expose their HPE NonStop-hosted applications as industry-standard REST services. These services can then be accessed from REST-enabled clients running on virtually any computing platform. LightWave ServerTM does this painlessly while maintaining the security, reliability, and scalability of the HPE NonStop server and applications. This allows customers to integrate the NonStop into their corporate SOA strategy with minimal investment of capital and time.
