Unisys has introduced Forward!, a secure fabric architecture designed to support the requirements of mission-critical solutions with the flexibility of virtualized environments and the security, scalability and predictable performance of Unix solutions. The new platform will combine with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server and SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension to provide an extremely flexible and cost-effective environment for critical business applications like SAP, ERP, CRM, cloud and big data.
SUSE and Unisys
The Unisys SUSE Linux Enterprise platform will enable organisations to:
- Harnessing the power of the cloud. The Unisys-SUSE Linux Enterprise platform will enable organizations to host SUSE Linux Enterprise and migrated UNIX application workloads on the same platform and provision them across all delivery models—from high-availability mission-critical environments to public clouds – with levels of security and performance required for each workload.
- Applying big data to real-world applications. The platform will provide extraordinary scalability for big data solutions. It can run open-source Hadoop or SAP workloads in a single secure partition, adding virtual machines as necessary to solve complex problems in real time.
- Migrating from Unix-RISC systems. By bringing partitioning and other mission-critical attributes of RISC systems to a Linux x86 architecture, the platform will provide a cost-efficient migration path from RISC systems running Unix applications without diminishing system performance.
