Re: ES80 HW equivalent

For ES80 with one CPU good HP replacement will be HP Integrity rx2800 i2.

Re: ES80 HW equivalent

The question is, what OS you want to use?

Here are the available Integrity entry level servers, the rx2800i2 is the latest:

Note: OpenVMS v8.4* is written there.


Hope this helps!

Re: ES80 HW equivalent

OS will depend on the Hardware we will choose. it doesn't matter Solaris or HPUX both we can use.
Let us focus on the Hardware, Digital classifies ES80 as Mid-range server. which i believe it should be replaced with a mid-range or high-end server from HP (rx8xxx , rx7xxx or superdome). please correct me if i am wrong.

thanks

Re: ES80 HW equivalent

This server is meanwhile old, so IMHO an entry level server is a good replacement.
You say you have 1 CPU, the rx2800 can have up to 8 cores, like the rx6600.

The major difference is the capacity of I/O slots, keep this in mind while you select a model.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
