Replacing HP Servers ..

Hi All

We have 3 hp servers which are now 5 years old and we are looking at replacing them as the maintenance costs are mounting.

Currently we have 2 rx4640's with 4 x 1.3Ghz CPU and 1 rx2600 with 2 x 1.3GHz CPU's

Whats the nearest equivalent server, I presume the rx2620 is the one for the smaller box, would an rx3600 with 4 cores be equivalent or is that under spec'ed.

And can someone point me to a quick sys admin rundown on the difference between HPUX 11i v2 and v3 - I havent kept up to date on the changes at all

The rx2620 is no longer sold, so you should focus on rx2660 and rx3600.

Many usefull documents about 11.31 is on -> 11iv3

Hope this helps!

Changes between 11i v2 and v3 are a lot, check out - you will find a lot of new features.

Do the Linux Switch perhaps?

An HP Proliant DL380 G6 running Enterprise Linux 5.X with 2x 4-core Nehalem 5570s and DDR3 with PCIe HBAs will certainly go around circles your compartabily socketed rx Itanium Server

And if its mainly DB serving or canned App - the switch should not be that difficult IMHO.

Just my few cents.
