Big Unix systems to multiply

Author: JT Smith

Hewlett-Packard chief executive Carly Fiorina will next week unveil the firm's mainframe-class Unix server, codenamed Superdome. HP's support for multiple, partitioned operating systems will find favour with firms wanting to consolidate multiple servers and applications into a single high-availability unit. HP's Superdome will provide another alternative to Sun's UltraSparc II-based systems, especially the top-end E10000. Sun's Serengeti UltraSparc III systems will be released on 27 September, according to a story from IT Week.
