DIfferences between RP7400 and RP7410

Hello colleagues,
I need to know the main differences between the RP7400 server and the RP7410.
What's mostly important for me are the I/O capability: SCSI external storage connectivity, web console, ....

Thanks a lot
Enrico

Enrico,

the most important difference is that the N-class (rp7400) does *not* support hard partitioning, while on an rp7410 you can have two npars.

Moreover, the 875MHz CPUs (8700+) are not supported in the rp7400, there you go at 750MHz max.

Cards for storage and LAN should not make any important difference.

Bernhard

Hi Enrico,

Huge differences.
The 7410 is a cell-based system & as such will support 2 hard partitions (nPars) as well as vPars like the 7400
The 7400 is basically the same as an N-class.

7410 has space for 4 easily hot-swappable disk drives on the front. 7400 only 2 & they're in the back & not easily hot-swappable.
7410 has space for the DVD drive internal. 7400 has NO space - DVD must be external.

7410 is much newer technology & IMO a far superior system. They're more expensive, but if you can get by with 650MHZ processors, take a look at the rp7405 - heck of a price on it & it's the same architecture as 7410.

Rgds,
Jeff
