comforte's Partner network continues to expand!
The concept of technology companies partnering with each other to deliver joint solutions is not something new in the NonStop community. From comforte’s perspective, partnerships have been extremely valuable to our customers by providing them with the strongest technology solutions available. Partnerships typically make things easier from a procurement, licensing, and support point of view. Our customers know they can have conversations with the comforte account teams to understand what technology options are available on NonStop systems.
New for 2018, we added another Technology Partner to the comforte Partner team.
Nexbridge Inc., led by Randall Becker (Managing Director), and comforte Inc. have agreed to an Exclusive Distribution Partnership for the NSGit™ solution. comforte Inc. will serve as sales and licensing, and Nexbridge Inc. will continue with its development and technical support role.
NSGit™ is catching a lot of buzz right now. NSGit™ extends Git™ capabilities on NonStop systems beyond OSS to include GUARDIAN. Many organizations who are looking to standardize their Source Code Management (SCM) or their Version Control System (VCS) , have looked at, or are already utilizing Git™ somewhere in their Enterprise (estimated 40% of companies running NonStop have Git™).
As you may or may not know, Git™ was originally designed by Linus Torvalds (yes, the original creator of Linux), as a control system. Git™ is considered open-source, however, the capabilities of Git™ for NonStop only reach the OSS Subsystem. NSGit™ completes the objective for organizations who want to extend Git™ to reach the GUARDIAN OS on NonStop.
What NSGit™ does is provide a common way for developers who are unfamiliar with NonStop systems to be able to execute Git™ compatible functions on NonStop systems. This allows developers to get more done in less time and with less pain. And, for those who are concerned about security on the NonStop systems, NSGit™ utilizes HPE NonStop SSH (developed by comforte, licensed by HPE for the NonStop OS) for secure communications between systems.
From a licensing perspective, NSGit™ is not open-source, however, your organization can license NSGit™ from comforte. Download the factsheet by clicking the button below and talk to your comforte Account Executive to learn more about how NSGit™ can add value to your organization.
