Hi Eric,

Re: Itanium 2

Hi again,

Your L2000 has PA-Risc cpu's. The current HPUX version for PA-Risc cpu's is 11.i (11.11). For Itanium cpu's there is a new HP-UX version 11.i version 2 (11.23).

Basically you could run every application on the new hp-ux version as long as it is supported/compiled for itanium 2.

Re: Itanium 2

Hi Eric,

your L2000 has PA-RISC CPUs. Itanium2 has EPIC architecture. HP has full line of Itanium2 servers (HP Integrity), see:

http://www.hp.com/products1/servers/integrity/index.html

HP Integrity servers run not only HP-UX, but OpenVMS, Linux and Windows also.

On HP Integrity servers with HP-UX you call run almost all PA-RISC applications via Aries dynamic translator (built in HP-UX) and applications compiled/optimized for Itanium2.
