What is HP Reliable Transaction Router?

HP Reliable Transaction Router (RTR) is fault-tolerant middleware (software) that ensures transaction integrity. RTR is designed for widely distributed client/server applications that require 24 x 7 continuous availability, disaster tolerance, and scalable performance. RTR is used for business applications that must execute real-time transactions reliably and without any interruption of service across widely distributed multi-vendor systems. Typical applications include stock and option exchanges, Internet banking and brokerages, electronic payment systems, trading and risk-management systems, reservation systems, and telecommunications systems.

What is unique about RTR?

RTR provides customers and partners with a unique, fault-tolerant software infrastructure that offers wide-area disaster tolerance, continuous application availability, and transaction integrity on multiple vendor platforms. RTR provides protection against several types of failures in the distributed environment, including network, application, database, system, and site failures. When network, system, or site resources become unavailable, RTR performs failover and recovery automatically and transparently to the application, providing real-time, continuous service.

How does RTR compare to other reliable messaging and high availability, transaction processing (TP) products?

RTR provides wide-area site shadowing; ACID transaction integrity; real-time, continuous processing of transactional messages even during failures; and transparent failover, recovery, and resynchronization in a multi-vendor environment. These features protect organizations against downtime, lost data, and slow response time, which can affect profits and customer satisfaction.

Why would I use RTR?

To ensure that your transactions get to the database. If you initiate a transaction at a client, such as a bank ATM, RTR takes care of ensuring that it goes from the client application to the server application and then to the database without being lost, even if one of the computers in the path, or a network link, goes away.

What is the distance limitation for RTR?

RTR extends disaster tolerance, delivering continuous operation across even global, multi-vendor networks. Redundant systems can be located thousands of miles away.

What platforms can run RTR?

For more information on platforms, refer to the appropriate RTR software product descriptions.
