Re: BL870ci2 Server vs rp8420/rp7420 PARISC Server

Re: BL870ci2 Server vs rp8420/rp7420 PARISC Server

Dear All,

I have existing servers RP7420/RP8420 (1 Ghz) servers with 3 processor/6 cores machine (Dual-Core).

I proposed to acquire BL870ci2 server (1.6/1.73 Ghz) servers with 5 cores machine (Quad-Core).


I need to do a comparison between these two categories of servers on performance.

Can someone give any clear picture how the new BL series servers perform on TPMC basis?

How do I ensure that proposed BL server with 5 cores are more than sufficient than my current RP PARISC servers?


Pls guide.


Thanks in advance.
