Data Transfer for HPE NonStop and AWS Storage

Easily transfer data between your Native NonStop Applications and your Enterprise cloud AWS Simple Storage Server (S3)

AWS Simple Storage Service (S3).png

Since the introduction of AWS Simple Storage Service (S3), S3 compatible object services have become highly popular, with each of the major cloud services providing S3 compatible storage, and a number of "S3 only" storage services also available. 



These services provide low cost, durable storage, and are used for both archiving of file data and transferring data to other parties or services. However, while there are a number of utilities available to integrate with S3 object storage, none are available in HPE NonStop Server Guardian environment. Of those that may be available in the OSS environment, none support online transaction processing (OLTP), the model used by most NonStop Server applications.

S3 Integration made easy

The S3COM utility provides a command line interface to S3 storage which is compatible with the Guardian COM program model. This allows the program to be driven by batch scripts written in TACL. After some simple configuration, customers can begin reading and writing data directly to S3 storage. The utility also provides the ability to list, delete, or move objects within the object store.


The S3CLIENT process can be deployed as a standalone server or TS/MP serverclass and provides integration with S3 object storage services via a simple IPM based application programming interface. This allows existing or new NonStop applications to integrate with S3 storage as part of their online transaction processing.

  • Integrate with internal and external third-party application 

Leverage the data and functionally of existing NonStop applications  and  increase revenue potential through introduction of new business services and expansion of existing ones.

Potential Uses

  • Backup data to inexpensive and durable S3 storage.

  • Export NonStop data to AWS services such as Glue, Redshift, Athena, or Quicksight via S3 

  • Exchange data with Business Partners

NonStop Fundamentals

  • Guardian-based - No need to run OSS, or to have any additional software installed.  Much simpler installation and management for NonStop environments.

  • Fault tolerant - Eliminates the risk of downtime with hardware that is dual redundant everything, and system and application software that is robust and self healing. The goal of every NonStop developer is "no single point of failure".

Financial Advantages
