Unisys Rolls Out a hardware-independent version of its ClearPath MCP

Unisys Corporation has announced a hardware-independent version of its ClearPath MCP operating environment software. The rollout marks the first time that Unisys has offered one of its flagship ClearPath operating environments independently of a ClearPath Forward large-system platform.

The new version of the premier MCP operating environment is designed to provide a production-ready, entry-level instance of the full software stack running on any Intel x86 server under VMware ESXi or a client-chosen system conforming to a reference specification.

This unprecedented move enables Unisys ClearPath Forward Libra system clients to deploy their critical MCP application workloads using Intel x86-based infrastructure of their choice without the potential need to incur capital and maintenance costs for additional hardware.

Delivery of hardware-independent operating environments is the latest step in the ongoing evolution of the ClearPath Forward systems into fully software-based offerings that provide continually increasing value to clients.

Widely recognized for their unmatched security, ClearPath MCP and OS 2200 – which powers ClearPath Forward Dorado systems – are tested, fully integrated stacks of more than 100 software products that address critical enterprise computing requirements, from efficient caching, memory usage and file-system management to high-volume transaction processing.

Platform-independent ClearPath MCP is available immediately in the following two options for entry-level production:

    ClearPath MCP Bronze offers concurrent-user-based licensing and can host a general-purpose workload that includes production work as well as application development and testing activities.

    ClearPath MCP Silver includes capacity-based licensing determined by the maximum number of MCP central processing modules available for activation. Licenses for several workload types are available, including general-purpose, Unisys Agile Business Suite model-driven development environment, and choices for business continuity and disaster recovery.

Clients can take advantage of Unisys ClearPath Forward services to plan, implement and manage the extended Intel x86-based infrastructure and associated application environment. The suite includes consulting and advisory, operational, and application modernization and management services.

Unisys plans to deliver platform-independent versions of the OS 2200 operating environment at a later date.
