New Update


As part of Adaptive Enterprise vision of standardizing its platform, Hewlett

Packard announced the expan-sion of its server portfolio by adopting Itanium 2

processors for the high-end NonStop servers. These new Integrity NonStop line of

servers will offer customers better than mainframe-class service levels with the

flexibility and benefits of an industry-standard architecture. The highly

scalable and absolutely fault tolerant NonStop servers are capable of managing

high volume online transactions backed by outstanding per-formance and security.

These servers will offer 2.5 times additional perfor-mance with respect to

current generation systems based on MIPS processors. The new 64-Bit NonStop

server offers the best price in its class and supports a number of open source

software applications. The server has also raised the bar for business

continuity by offering optional levels of availability with dual and triple

modular redundancy. This redundancy option offers an unprecedented seven 9s

(99.99999 percent) level of availability and 100-fold reduction of risk.

"The real time environment capability of the architecture adds

intelligence in the system through correlation and pattern recognition making

the servers very suitable for defence and homeland secu-rity. They allow us to

address CRM opportunities that offer single view of the customer," said

Hemant Tiwari, Director, Enterprise Servers and Storage, Hewlett Packard India

Sales Pvt Ltd.
