Hewlett-Packard on Wednesday debuted a dual-processor module that doubles the power of its Intel Itanium-based Integrity servers.

Dubbed the mx2, the two-processor module holds a pair of 64-bit Itanium 2 chips, and can be swapped for the single-processor modules in existing four- to 128-way Integrity systems, doubling the number of CPUs in the system without having to buy a new box.

A 128-way Integrity Superdome server, for instance, could be transformed into a 256-way server.

HP's touting the two-processor modules as a way for its customers to consolidate server workload in fewer chassis, resulting in lower management and maintenance costs.

It also boasted that by swapping out single-processor modules with the mx2, companies could save up to 35 percent over buying a new system from competitors such as IBM.
