In the HP server product family, it is the high-end HP Integrity Superdome that supports Intel® Itanium® 2 processors with up to 9 MB of L3 cache and HP mx2 Dual- Processor Modules consisting of two Intel Itanium 2 processors. While HP 9000 Superdome servers with PA-RISC processors will continue to support HP-UX, HP Integrity Superdome servers with Intel Itanium 2 processors will run HP-UX, Windows®, and Linux® operating environments. OpenVMS is planned for qualification on the Superdome platform in 1H 2006. This flexibility allows customers to address a variety of needs with the same system, thus reducing support and management costs. The HP Integrity Superdome is designed to deliver the performance, availability, capacity, security, and manageability needed for a variety of applications, from mission-critical to compute-intensive. In this white paper, you’ll learn about the architecture, system software, and management tools of the new HP Integrity Superdome based on the HP Super-Scalable Processor Chipset sx1000.
