The Integrity Superdome from Hewlett-Packard is a high-end server supporting Windows Server 2003 DataCenter edition.
The Integrity Superdome server is designed to deliver virtualization for enterprise consolidation and scalability. It can scale to 64 processors and 128 cores with 2 TB of memory and 192 I/O slots in a single server.
Key benefits of the Superdome include:
The server also builds business continuity through new high-availability features to alleviate hardware outages and keep revenue streams flowing. These technologies include Double Chip Sparing, which immediately restores chip-spare protection after a DRAM has failed, plus link retries to recover from link failure without any loss of performance.
Extended scalability with balanced performance.
Flexibility in application deployment.
Improved utilization and continuous service levels.
The Integrity Superdome simplifies deployment of recourses to projects, and new management tools enhance resource usage while reducing complexity. These new tools include:
System requirements: Windows Server 2003 DataCenter edition, Linux, OpenVMS, HP-UX 11i v2.
Systems Insight Manager, the foundation of HP's unified infrastructure management strategy. Integrity Essentials, with tools for deployment, configuration, remote server management and integration. Storage Essentials, a software suite for heterogeneous storage increases efficiency, simplifies tasks and lowers SAN costs
