HP-UX Operating Environments
11i v1, 11i v2, 11i v3 – Beechglen provides comprehensive support of all HP-UX versions and layered software environments including the most complex MC/ServiceGuard server clusters
Foundation Operating Environment (FOE)
The HP-UX 11i Foundation OE is a fully-featured operating environment. In addition to the base HP-UX kernel, commands and management utilities, the HP-UX 11i Foundation OE provides numerous other Internet-focused capabilities, including the Apache Webserver, Java Runtime and Java Development Environment. The HP-UX 11i Foundation Operating Environment includes a number of features for industrial-strength system management, industry-leading scalability, multi-system interoperability, and advanced security.
Enterprise Operating Environment (EOE)
The HP-UX 11i Enterprise Operating Environment provides all the capabilities of the HP-UX 11i Foundation OE plus certain critical add-on products for additional single system availability and performance management. The HP-UX Enterprise Operating Environment is focused on midrange application servers that must be optimized for single-system (non-clustered) high availability and maximum performance.
The HP-UX 11i Enterprise OE adds OnlineJFS (Veritas File System VxFS v3.5), MirrorDisk/UX, and Event Monitoring System (EMS) High Availability Monitors for additional single-system availability. The HP-UX 11i Enterprise OE also adds Process Resource Manager and GlancePlus Pak; the former to manage application performance and response times, the latter to monitor and optimize system performance.
Mission Critical Operating Environment (MCOE)
The HP-UX 11i Mission Critical Operating Environment provides all the capabilities of the HP-UX 11i Foundation and Enterprise Operating Environments plus certain critical add-on products for additional multiple system availability and performance management. The HP-UX 11i Mission Critical Operating Environment is focused on the high-end, corporate-critical database servers that must measure system downtime in no more than a few minutes per year.
The HP-UX 11i Mission Critical Operating Environment adds the Serviceguard high-availability clustering software. The HP-UX 11i Mission Critical OE also includes Workload Manager, a completely unique tool for HP-UX that provides goal-based system resource management to maximize application response times.
Base Operating Environment (BOE)
The HP-UX 11i v3 BOE delivers the entire UNIX operating system plus comprehensive, integrated security for systems, data, and identity, as well as secure resource and hard partitions. The BOE includes full Insight Control functionality with power management, health check, and deployment tools. It also provides full performance analysis tools for kernel processes and applications, as well as base file system and volume management.
Virtualization Server Operating Environment (VSE-OE)
In addition to what is in the BOE, HP-UX 11i v3 VSE-OE integrates advanced file system and volume management with system-level performance analysis, plus the full complement of HP-UX virtualization software provided through the Insight Dynamics–VSE suite. This suite includes capabilities for soft or sub – CPU partitioning, capacity planning, goal-based workload management, automated infrastructure provisioning, and advanced physical and virtual infrastructure management.
High Availability Operating Environment (HA-OE)
In addition to what is in the BOE, HP-UX 11i v3 HA-OE integrates advanced file system and volume management with system-level performance analysis, plus HP Serviceguard, the number 1 high-availability software for UNIX. HP Serviceguard delivers continuous service availability and supports both local and stretch clusters for cost-effective disaster recovery. Additionally, tested and proven Serviceguard toolkits enable you to protect key databases and Internet servers in minutes while also easily managing it all with intuitive GUI-based cluster management software.
Data Center Operating Environment (DC-OE)
HP-UX 11i v3 DC-OE delivers the complete set of HP-UX mission-critical UNIX software in a single package, combining the value in the HA-OE and VSE-OE—both of which include the BOE software. The DC-OE is the ideal environment for resiliency and optimization, leveraging the tight integration of HP advanced infrastructure management software for high availability, partitions, workload management, and performance optimization.
