Do you still run an IBM System/390 mainframe, or more specifically, an IBM Multiprise® 3000, with an OS/2-based Support Element? How much time could you spare in the event of a hardware failure, to recover to a standby system?
Arca Noae’s S/390 Backup Facility is a self-booting, self-contained, no-installation-required, CD-based utility, providing for the quick backup and restore of one of these original Single Board Computer systems or a more modern replacement.
Built on ArcaOS, this invaluable application suite brings you peace of mind and system recovery capability as never before. Back up to multiple USB devices & restore the entire disk array, including all partition data and files, or just a single partition. In fact, if all you need to recover is a single file, that’s easily done, as well.
Licensing for the S/390 Backup Facility is per-site, so with one purchase, all IBM Multiprise® 3000 Support Elements in the same location are protected. One full year of technical support is also included.
Arca Noae is pleased to announce the availability of updated eCo Software Runtime packages, downloadable from our downloadables page.
The eCo Software Runtime packages provide support libraries for several components of ArcaOS and eCS, as well as eCo Software applications. The Net and Win packages have been updated as of 2018-11-13. The Win update resolves an issue in the File Open Container (FOC) used by default in ArcaOS.
These packages are provided by Arca Noae as a convenience to our customers, clients, and the community at large. Arca Noae does not produce these packages, and the software is provided “as is” without any warranty of any kind. Support for the eCo Software Runtime is provided by eCo Software, in their support forum.
Arca Noae is pleased to announce the immediate availability of a new release of our MultiMac NIC driver package.
This is a maintenance release of the MultiMac drivers. It contains some minor updates to the system libraries that affects system stability and reliability and applies to all drivers. Specifically this update fixes a defect that affected accessing devices that use port I/O. Port I/O is only used on a few old NICs. Modern NICs do not use port I/O so this update will not affect most systems. If your network device is currently working, you will not see any change with this update. However if you have an older network card that is supposed to work but doesn’t, this update might fix that. This update is recommended for all users.
As always, please read the .txt file that comes with each driver and also provided on the wiki. If you have problems with any of the drivers in this release, please read the Debugging Guide in the wiki first. If your problem cannot be resolved with the Debugging Guide, then the problem should be reported to the ticketing system.
More information about the MultiMac NIC drivers may be found in the wiki.
If you have ArcaOS, this driver package is available for download from the Arca Noae website as part of the Support & Maintenance subscription for your ArcaOS product. Please log into your account and see your ArcaOS order details page to access your software.
If you are still running OS/2 and/or eComStation systems and haven’t yet purchased a software subscription, this is a great reason to do so now. It may also be a good time to consider moving up to ArcaOS.
