Development work is already underway to extend the HP NonStop platform to x86.
In November 2011, HP announced Project Odyssey, a strategy for mission-critical computing with a development roadmap that furthers the companys investment in established mission-critical technology and new x86-based solutions. As a continuation of this effort, HP is extending its server portfolio to include HP NonStop on an x86 architecture, allowing its customers to select either an Itanium- or x86-based platform for their mission-critical needs.
HP NonStop customers also can take advantage of 50 percent greater performance in the same footprint when moving to the new HP Integrity NonStop BladeSystem NB56000c or the HP Integrity NonStop BladeSystem NB56000c-cg.
The new HP Integrity NonStop BladeSystem NB56000c and the HP Integrity NonStop BladeSystem NB56000c-cg are available worldwide today. HP offers customized solutions with HP NonStop servers. Pricing varies for each of the new HP solutions.
