Hi Eric,

Q1 - Are the HP 9000 servers limited to 440 Mhz CPU's?

No, we have 9000 servers running 800Mhz. Probably, you will get more Mhz

Q2 - Until when I will be able to buy this servers?

Untill 2012, you will get support for PA9000.

Q3 - What are the alternatives with PA_RISC architecture?

Itanium 2 ?

1. No, fastest CPU today is PA-8900 1,1 GHz

2. see http://h71028.www7.hp.com/ERC/cache/49205-0-0-0-121.aspx?bodycontentparams=141747-0-0-0-121&ERL=true&pageTitle=Featured%20article

3. The current HP9000 (PA-RISC) systems can be upgraded to HP Integrity systems.
