Server sizing

Hi everybody,

To plan the move of an application on HP fro a new prospect, I would like to know wich HP servers correspond to the following machines (application server + database server) and what is the approximate cost of the proposed solution (+/- 20%):

- 1 SunFire V880, 6CPU 750MHz, 12GB RAM, 6x36 GB disks, 1x10/100MB/s network card and 1x1GB/s fibre interface.
- 1 SunFire V880, 6CPU 750MHz, 12GB RAM, 12x36 GB Raid-0 disks, 1x10/100MB/s network card and 1x1GB/s fibre interface.

Thanks a lot for the help

Re: Server sizing

HP's mid-range servers will I guess fit to your requirements.

Re: Server sizing

I think I'd look into the Itanium rx5600 series or the PA-RISC rp5470 series. Here is a link for further investigation.

PA-RISC

Itanium

Affordable, configurable, expandable.

Itanium can Run Linux or 64 bit Windows. PA-RISC is hp-ux only.

Re: Server sizing

Jacques,

An equivalent would be the rp7410 which comes with 1 to 8 650/750/875MHz processors. For the disks, I would suggest an external array like the va7410. Approximate prices would be something like $290k for the rp7410 with 6 875MHz processors, 3 years support, rack and UPS. The va7410 would be in the $80k range. Generally you'll get a 25 to 30 percent discount of those prices.

That's a very rough guideline but it gives you an idea.

Re: Server sizing

I would look at the rp4440 series of machines. These have the newest dual-core PA8800 CPUs and the pricing is pretty good.

You can configure your own machine and get pricing through the Enterprise Configurator herre -
