Push Toward Integrity Servers Highlights HPWorld

Hewlett-Packard's continuing efforts to migrate its customer base to the Itanium processor-based Integrity server line highlights a large number of product introductions to be unveiled at HPWorld 2004 in Chicago this week.

"Definitely our focus is to bring capabilities to our Integrity product line," says Nick van der Zweep, director of virtualization and utility computing for HP. "It's our platform of choice for customers moving forward. The common theme HP is trying to demonstrate at HPWorld is proof points that show how we can help customers be flexible and adapt to change."

The company is extending capabilities of its virtual server environment to support Integrity as well as systems based on the PA-RISC architecture, which is being phased out by HP, van der Zweep says.

"We want to extend the virtual server environment on Integrity to include multiple operating systems, beginning with Linux this year and Windows shortly thereafter," he says.

Three new offerings that will make multiple operating-system capabilities possible for virtual server environments include the Global Workload Manager, Integrity Virtual Machine, and an enhanced utility-pricing portfolio, van der Zweep says.
