BS2000/OSD-BC V9.0

BS2000 OSD/BC is unrivaled in providing an available, scalable, high-performance platform for business-critical applications that is totally compatible across numerous versions.At the same time,with its open interfaces BS2000 OSD/BC offers future-proof integration into modern application architectures. Theserver scalability from 12 RPF to 5.000 RPFenables tailor-made configurations with high growth potential.

Efficiency, Innovation, Openness and Continuity are the main BS2000/OSD development goals. In BS2000/OSD-BC V9.0 emphasis is placed on the following aspects:

  • Extended storage integration
  • Performance enhancement by optimizing data backup to fast tape devices (LTO) 
  • Functions for simpler and more effective BS2000 operation
  • Extensions for enhanced openness and integration ability
  • Support of functionality of SQ200 successor
  • Functional enhancements as preparation for future SQ server generations

For SQ servers, the x86 architecture ported BS2000/OSD-BC V9.0 variant is available as a part of the OSD Extended Configuration Package OSD/XC V9.0.
