The Unisys ClearPath OS 2200 QProcessor provides a high performance, secure processing environment that has been optimized to support the WebSphere® MQ Version 7 for ClearPath OS 2200 message queuing solution. Running under the control of the OS 2200 operating system, the QProcessor allows ClearPath Dorado servers to reliably exchange messages with a wide range of other platforms that support the IBM® WebSphere® MQ solution.
The WebSphere MQ for ClearPath OS 2200 product is based on IBM® WebSphere® MQ Version 7.0 release.
Through the OS 2200 QProcessor, the WebSphere MQ for ClearPath OS 2200 provides the full functionality of the IBM product but is optimized to take advantage of integration with the OS 2200 environment such as Open DTP transaction management. OS 2200 QProcessor provides a compatible upgrade path for users of MQSeries for ClearPath OS 2200 version 5.2.
The WebSphere® MQ Version 7 for ClearPath OS 2200 product, running with the OS 2200 QProcessor, and the OS 2200 operating environment work together to provide the message queuing run-time environment for queuing applications. The OS 2200 QProcessor is fully integrated into the ClearPath OS 2200 server. This integration enables transaction or batch applications to take advantage of the high levels of performance, reliability, and security of the OS 2200 operating environment. All management and recovery are handled by the OS 2200 operating environment. The OS 2200 QProcessor utilizes dedicated processing resources, including its own memory and disk, but acts as a transparent extension of the OS 2200 environment.
The WebSphere® MQ Version 7 for ClearPath OS 2200 has been engineered to run on the OS 2200 QProcessor for all the current Dorado servers. Applications written for previous releases of MQSeries for OS 2200 require no changes specifically for Unisys when moving to WebSphere® MQ Version 7 for ClearPath OS 2200.
The components of the OS 2200 WebSphere® MQ solution are:
- The OS 2200 QProcessor, which includes the necessary hardware resources.
- Industry standard operating system and Unisys exclusive firmware that runs with the OS 2200 QProcessor and provides the necessary integration and security not available in a free-standing server.
