HP bundles Nokia server
Posted: 09-May-2000 [Source: HP press conference]

[HP announced today "the first out-of-the-box WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) UNIX system server."]

Palo Alto, Calif. -- Furthering its strategy to lead Internet Age computing, Hewlett-Packard Company released a three-pronged strategy aimed at the Internet and the $10.8 billion entry-level server market1. Helping service providers, Internet start-ups and enterprises reduce the time it takes to create and deploy new electronic services, the strategy includes the following:

- entry-level HP 9000 A400 and A500 UNIX(r) system servers;

- 20 leading Internet ISVs (Independent Software Vendors) that have committed to HP-UX2 11; and

- fast-track Internet initiatives, including Servers on Demand, financing and services.

"We're packing the highest customer value possible into this offering: a complete entry-level solution with our new A-Class servers, a comprehensive array of Internet software applications, customized financing, and special services tailored for entry-level Internet computing," said Janice Chaffin, vice president and general manager of HP's Business Critical Computing Business Unit. "Customers can accelerate their time to revenue because we've eliminated the complexity of building and running systems for the Internet."

With up to two processors, the HP 9000 A400 and A500 servers complement the four-processor L-Class, midrange N-Class and high-end V-Class, and deliver a number of industry firsts:

Packed with Internet value at an entry-level price: Available with Nokia's Web server, the A-Class is the first out-of-the-box WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) UNIX system server. In addition, it is the only Internet server with industry-leading applications, including Infoseek's search engine, Resonate's load-balancing software, and e-speak.

Designed for the Internet: The A-Class delivers leading Web performance. With a pizza-box form, the servers can be stacked -- 20 to a rack -- to give service providers the power and flexibility they need to handle increasing Internet traffic. Also, because the A-Class is the industry's most scalable server, customers can add extra processors or increase processor speed to provide the performance needed without having to buy another server.

Mission-critical, yet simple: Available with JavaTM optimized HP-UX 11 and Linux operating systems, the A-Class servers are built on a reliable, scalable and highly available platform. In addition, they have WebQoS peak traffic management software, extended fault management systems and Web-based management tools for remote diagnostics.
