Does your organization have one or more storage-related software applications that still use the Advanced SCSI Programming Interface (ASPI), and do these applications still run on Windows XP?
If so, you are probably aware of the fact that support for Windows XP will be discontinued in April 2014, and that you need to move these applications to Windows 7 as soon as possible.
NexiTech can help you migrate these applications to Windows 7 by providing a drop-in replacement for your obsolete ASPI software that works correctly on Windows 7 and beyond.
a.) Need to use physical storage transports other than parallel SCSI (such as SATA, SAS, USB, 1394, Fibre Channel or iSCSI)?
b.) Need to run from non-elevated user accounts?
c.) Need support for 64-bit versions of Windows?
If so, then we can help!
Please contact NexiTech for more details on how we can help solve your ASPI and SCSI obsolescence problems today.
With a master's degree in Electrical Engineering and many years of experience writing software, NexiTech CEO and President Donald E. Matthews specializes in solving difficult problems found in the data storage industry. As a software developer and systems integrator, NexiTech has a proven track record of helping both private industry and the U.S. military by creating and deploying innovative storage solutions. Specific skills include the architecture, design and development of kernel-mode device drivers for both Windows and Linux, real-time embedded systems firmware development, and world-class expertise with all modern storage interfaces and protocols, including the Small Computer Systems Interface (SCSI) and its many present-day derivatives.
NexiTech has developed Advanced SCSI Programming Interface (ASPI) Manager software that can help address military aircraft Mission Planning Environment (MPE) and Data Transfer Device (DTD) obsolescence issues. This is significant because even at this late date some military MPEs still continue to use Windows XP despite the fact that support for Windows XP will be dropped in April 2014. Those MPEs must be migrated to Windows 7 as soon as possible, and NexiTech can help make that happen with its drop-in ASPI software replacement. In addition, NexiTech has very detailed knowledge of the entire spectrum of DTDs currently in use by Air Force and Navy military aircraft. NexiTech can be a valuable asset when it comes to developing storage-related solutions that help solve urgent problems associated with military aircraft MPE and DTD obsolescence.
The NexiTech ASPI Manager software is available now, and has been successfully qualified with three different MPEs by three different branches of the U.S. military. Furthermore, it fielded in 2011 for use with the C-130 in connection with the Tanker, Airlift, and Special Missions (TASM) program, and it fields in 2014 for use by the Presidential Helicopter program (specifically, the VH-3D and VH-60N airframes). This software was also licensed by Honeywell International, Inc. in 2013 for use with test stations that support its Digital Map System (DMS) cartridges (both mission and theater) used in the F-15E fighter and the B-2 bomber. Honeywell needed to quickly move to Windows 7, and was able to do so only after engaging NexiTech for the purpose of replacing its obsolete ASPI software with a drop-in replacement from NexiTech that works correctly on Windows 7.
NexiTech can solve the most difficult and elusive SCSI obsolescence problems out there with its sophisticated reverse engineering capabilities. These skills were required when working with the U.S. Navy on the Presidential Helo project and also on the Honeywell project. More details are available upon request.
Another significant capability NexiTech provides is world-class expertise with SCSI Target Mode. NexiTech has been a pioneer in this particular field of study, in which COTS-based microcomputers may be used to imitate, or emulate, any type of data storage device over various modern physical transports, including both Fibre Channel and iSCSI. This capability makes it possible to rapidly prototype new functionality or even replace obsolete devices with more modern components, by creating mission-specific, special-purpose storage appliances with advanced capabilities.
