is the server HP9000 still a performante one

Hi, I hope that I'm in the righte place,
I work as a system administrator (I've just got the job for that I dont have a lot of information dealing with servers administration)
the lab / office (where I work) has a HP9000 server .
after some researchs through the internet I've seen that it's old server (actually very old one). I think a nowadays PC is more performent than HP9000
Is HP9000 still exisit in the market
PLZ, what can we do with such server, which application can we install on it ?

thx MSM,

Re: is the server HP9000 still a performante one

Hello,

can you say what is the model of the server you are describing ? HP9000 platform still runs a lot of critical applications that require performance. So generally, yes HP9000 servers are performant.

If your server is really old then you might be right stating that today's PC can outperform it.

Hi MSM,

as Jozef mentioned lot of custommer use this servers, for real application.

But in your case, you should exactly know which model do you have and the exact configuration, them you ( or the itrc memmbers ) will be able to say, which OS version could run on this HW.

hi,

that is not a big configuration like a SuperDome of HP 9000 series. So i think you should check if there is possible upgrade the CPU and memmory.

Which HP-UX version is there running ?

Yes, this is very old.
Note: HP now only sells Integrity servers for HP-UX.
