Server Naming Convention

After referring to the page: http://www.hp.com/products1/servers/naming_scheme.html

I am still confused about how these conventions work concerning architecture.

Example:
An rp2400 would seem to show an "R" product family with "P" describing the PA-risc architecture. Is this accurate?

Additionally, in the Blade servers, what does the "bc" and "bh" designate in the bc1100 and bh3700, respectively? I assume the "b" refers to Blade, however, "c" and "h" represent what, if not some architecture?

Re: Server Naming Convention

Hi

Yuor assumes about rp servers seems to be correct.

bc is a Intel based server blade
bp is a PA-RISC server blade.

And BL blade servers is earlier Compaq servers.
