Re: HP SERVER UPGRADE

If you need to replace one and only one server, I think an rx2880 i2 will already do the trick. I think it easily matches the performance of thr RP7410, and you can put a whole lot of memory in it.

If you already have an rx6600 server, I think it matches the rx2880 i2 in performance, but you will need twice as many processors for that.

But it may be worth to investigate if the cost & maintenance of an rx2880 i2 is better in the long run that staying on the rx6600.

Hi trnq,
The RP7410 4 x 875 MHz is about 60.000 TPM´s,
and the RX6600 2 dual processor 1.56 GHz is about 3 times faster..

Re: HP SERVER UPGRADE

Hello,

u can use rx2800 i2 server like a new applciation server, about comparaison u can use this site :

http://h71028.www7.hp.com/integrity/w1/en/entry-class/integrity-entry-class-servers.html

 

about rx6600 its entry level server for integrity plateform, rp7410 is mid-Range server on PA-RISC plateform.

So, now we have two case:

1- two different plateform -PA-RISC and Itanium ( need to verify if ur applcation binary code is compatible with Itanium compiled code)

2-Verify if ur server configuration can be atteigned on the new server ( if there's nPar configuration , vPar or HPVM)

also verify the compatiblity of application with new HPUX version that u will use it on your new server.

Contacting HP Support is the best answer , else u have to make a plan for that just to be sure that you wiil not loose any data .

Good Luck,
