Forward! by Unisys, is 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 with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server and SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension provides an extremely flexible and cost-effective environment for critical business applications like SAP, ERP, CRM, cloud and big data.
Organizations using the Forward! by Unisys/SUSE Linux Enterprise solution can:
- Harness the power of the cloud. The Unisys/SUSE Linux Enterprise platform will enable organizations to host SUSE Linux Enterprise and migrated UNIX application workloads 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.
- Apply big data to real-world applications. The platform provides extraordinary scalability for big data solutions. It can run open-source Hadoop or SAP workloads in secure partitions, adding additional partitions as necessary to solve complex problems in real time.
Mission Critical Security and Predictive Performance for SAP Applications.
- Migrate 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 or losing security.
