HP unveils 'Superdome' Unix servers
(IDG) -- Hewlett-Packard unveiled the high-end HP 9000 Superdome Unix server Tuesday at a news conference in New York, where company executives also detailed an overall strategy aimed at its large dot-com customers, service providers, and data-intensive corporations.
The Superdome server, which is available now, is 64-bit ready and supports the HP-UX 11i operating system. Eventually it will support HP-UX, Windows NT, and Linux simultaneously, HP said in a written statement that was released in conjunction with the news conference.
The Superdome can also be loaded with HP Surestore E Disk Array XP512, which was designed to eliminate planned downtime to back up or upgrade systems.
The server is available in three configurations, all of which include consulting, management, training, and services to run the system. Information on pricing was not provided in the statement.
Superdome systems will be customized for individual HP clients, but using a common set of reference architectures will allow users to more quickly install CRM (customer relationship management), ERP (enterprise resource planning), electronic-commerce, and collaborative software, HP said.
