"The p5 servers have already delivered benchmark performance more than double that of HP Itanium II-based servers and as much as three times the performance of HP PA-RISC and Sun UltraSparc-based systems." Oh yeah!
In addition to the performance we have virtualization. For anyone who doesn't know about virtualization - it allows you to run multiple operating systems per processor. This will enable you to replace several smaller servers (even running differant OS) on one more powerful, higher performing server. Efficiencies that benefit you as an IT manager, that's a novel concept, huh?
Now, about Linux....yes that is my focus. So now we have systems for many workloads. We have Linux based systems to support your infrastructure with workload solutions for file and print, web serving and more. We have application based Linux servers for DB2, Websphere and even Sybase. High performance computing on Linux is a growing focus with solutions in Bioinformatics, Proteomics and Computational Chemistry.
