HP ProLiant Gen8: Integrated lifecycle automation

IBM has announced a low-end Unix server which consumes 20 per cent less power than competing Sun Microsystems kit.

The eServer p610 runs AIX5L or Linux (via Linux Affinity, full support isn't there yet) and comes with two Power3 microprocessor running at 375 or 450 Mhz, and in rack-mounted and tower versions. It is designed as a workhorse departmental or small business server.

The p610 features IBM eLiza self-healing technologies including First Failure Data Capture, which is designed to keep a running system error log, and Persistent Deallocation, "which can automatically remove failed components when a system is rebooted".

IBM said the p610 is fastest 2-way server as measured by the SPECjbb2000 benchmark. It operates at 450 watts, 19 percent less than the competing Sun Fire 280R's 560 watts. ®
