HP is pushing forward its Intel Itanium-powered NonStop server platform with a new entry-class set of NS2100 servers.
“The NS2100 doesn’t replace any server, but extends the NonStop portfolio to more customers, and is targeted at financial services, manufacturing, telecommunications, and healthcare industries, and emerging markets,” Mark Pollans, Worldwide NonStop Product Manager at HP, told ServerWatch. “Think of any markets NonStop is currently serving, but in smaller countries, operations and businesses.”
Pollans added that the target market for the NS2100 includes customers that are seeking a cost-effective way to attain mission-critical reliability and agility for their most important business applications.
The NS2100 is powered by either two or four Intel Itanium 9300 processors. NS2100 systems can be configured with up to 32GB of memory, and all systems include redundant power supplies, power distribution units and fans.
