Dear Abhijith,

RP series of servers are PA-RISC servers. PA_RISC is developed by HP)
RX series for itanium servers. Itanium arctiecture was devloped by Intel and HP.

Hi Abhijit,

RP xxxx --> RP specifies it is PA-RISC architecture.

RX xxxx --> Itanium Architecture.

xxxx --> model number of the server.

Re: Naming Conventions of HP Server

For the rp4440.
The 1st character, r, was supposed to be for rack optimized.
The 2nd character, p, was supposed to be for pa-risc (x for Itanium).
The 3rd character, 4, was server class designation (larger # for larger systems).
The 4th character, 4, was for pa-risc (6 for Itanium, yes this is redundant)
The 5th and sixth character for a model within a class. So far, the sixth character has always been zero.
And then there is Superdome and Integrity Superdome that don't follow this at all.

Re: Naming Conventions of HP Server

@Gerry,

this is a PA-Risc system (indicated by "9000").
Better to use "model".

If you see "ia64" - this is Integrity, e.g.

ia64 hp superdome server SD16B

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
