Re: PA-Risc vs Itanium

Shalom Saravnan,

This can be a controversial topic.

I've done a number of comparison quotes internally here for internal customers and have the following conclusions, based partially on discussions with HP.

1) The last PA-RISC release of HP-UX is apparently 11 v3, set for release this year.
2) The same money on my quotes gets you more raw power with Itanium.
3) The last PA-RISC chips, unless HP changes its mind are hitting the market now.
4) I have personally found PA-RISC to be somewhat more reliable, but we use machines for 10 years heere and I'm recommending Itaniums internally. Still PA-RISCS are being ordered and installed.

Re: PA-Risc vs Itanium

A careful read of the document I posted shows as always Bill Hassell is right and I mis-read the document.

I deserved nothing for either of my posts, good thing they were accidently on my alter ego's ID.

I knew there would be a problem with using that ID to manage the issues threads.
