HP-UX stretches over new Superdome 2

HP was awfully quiet about shipping its 32-socket Superdome 2 server last month. Neither have they made much noise about their biannual update for the HP-UX 11i v3 operating system that runs on their Itanium-based servers. Perhaps they were too busy buying Autonomy for $10.3bn and trying to finesse a spin-off of their PC …

Poulson Itaniums hit 'Replay' for reliability

Hot Chips The future eight-core "Poulson" Itanium is not just a process-shrink of the current four-core "Tukwila" Itanium 9300. Intel has been working to add new features to Poulson to make it useful running enterprise workloads – and to do so more reliably. Intel already released a lot of Poulson details back at February's IEEE's …

HP forges 32-socket Itanium iron

What's going on with Hewlett-Packard's Itanium-based Integrity server lineup? It has been over a year since HP got its first machines using Intel's "Tukwila" quad-core Itanium 9300 processors into Integrity machines, and the company has still not delivered machines spanning 32 and 64 sockets. This is the kind of big iron that …

HP revs NonStop blades with Tukwila Itaniums

Hewlett-Packard is moving its NonStop fault tolerant database and operating system up to the latest "Tukwila" Itanium 9300 technology from chip partner Intel. The quad-core Itanium 9300s were launched by Intel back in February 2010, and HP revamped its Integrity blade servers to make use of these chips and to allow for them to …

Intel sends 'Poulson' Itaniums to the shrink

ISSCC Everyone else might have pretty much abandoned the Itanium processor, but Intel and Hewlett-Packard – who co-designed the 64-bit processor – remain firmly committed. That's mainly because HP has a captive audience of HP-UX, NonStop, and OpenVMS customers that spend billions of dollars a year on systems and therefore make it …

NEC kicks out glueless Nehalem EX beast

Like all remaining Itanium vendors aside from HP, NEC is shifting its focus to Intel's new Nehalem-EX Xeon 7500 processors for its big-iron beasts. The times, they are a-changin'. NEC made a big deal about high-end Itanium-based systems in the prior decade, notching up big benchmark wins with its 16-socket "Azuza" and 32- …

Of all the features that HP announced for the sixth HP-UX 11i v3 update, the one that is most important …

HP dons blades to scale Superdome 2

After several months of not talking about it in the wake of Intel's February launch of the "Tukwila" quad-core Itanium 9300 processors, Hewlett-Packard is finally describing what those machines will be.

Super Micro primes 'Magny-Cours' Opterons

SC09 Super Micro may not be a name-brand, tier-one server maker, but it's the motherboard and whitebox maker behind scads of tier two, three, and four server sellers around the globe. And that's because Super Micro gets out in front - and stays there - whenever a new technology is coming to market. A year ago, at the SC08 …

Tukwila Itanium delay situation still as clear as mud

Two weeks ago, when Intel once again delayed its quad-core "Tukwila" Itanium processors until early 2010, the company did not give much insight into what the delay was about. It also said nothing about how the continuing delays with Tukwila would affect future Itanium processor rollouts. Like many of you, I have been trying to …

Big Blue shipped Power6+ last fall

Server buyers who have been waiting for IBM to ship the Power6+ chip will be surprised to discover that it already has. It just didn't tell anyone. Crazy, right?
