Need a server architecture that is scalable, flexible and highly available? Do you already have HP Integrity blades but aren't sure if you are maximizing those resources today? Are you looking for a new solution that better meets your growing and most demanding, never fail business requirements and want more flexibility than you are seeing from other vendors? Watch this technical webinar "Maximizing scalable resources for your mission-critical environment". More details on what we'll talk about here>>>
Earlier this week, I had the chance to have a conversation with a long time HP-UX customer. Like many customers, they are looking at the new HP Integrity blades to upgrade multiple 3 to 5 year old systems. However, we ended up discussing something that many customers also have: they have several legacy applications that are still on HP 9000 PA-RISC servers running HP-UX 11i v1.
It is a story that I've heard many times with different variations. The customer implemented a software package, and it ended up being discontinued, so there is no newer version for HP Integrity servers. However, it still provides an essential function for the business, running away with old hardware, an OS that is several releases behind the current one, and an unsupported application.
