HP Unveils 2 Itanium 2 Servers

HP hammered home its commitment to the Itanium 2 chips this week, announcing new mid- and high-end members of its Integrity family of servers with the Madison chip, along with new support for OpenVMS 8.2, Novell’s version of Linux, bundled virtualization software and, for the first time, a pay-per-use policy for server-based Windows. The refreshed servers, which include those all the way up to HP’s Superdome, run on average 25 percent faster than their predecessors. The added performance of the system is due not only to improved chip and other hardware technologies but software as well. Trying to broaden their cross platform appeal, the new servers not only support Windows and HP-UX 11i but now OpenVMS Version 8.2 and Novell’s Linux 9, the latter containing the 2.6 version of the Linux kernel. HP is also adding a couple of virtualization capabilities to boost the servers competitive position, including secure resource partitions to better ensure security among applications.
