The Importance of Having ‘Integrity’

Hewlett-Packard executives rolled out long-awaited details of the 
company’s new Integrity line of servers June 30 in a Webcast and conference 
call to customers and press. Integrity servers are those from HP that 
use Intel’s new Itanium processor (with the exception of NonStop, which 
will be moved to Itanium but not placed under the Integrity brand). 

All 32-bit Intel-based servers will continue as part of the ProLiant 

The Integrity family ranges from one- and two-processor, entry-level 
systems up to a 64-processor HP Integrity Superdome server, the whole 
range of which offers what HP claims is an “unmatched, cost-efficient, 
high-performance, multi-operating system infrastructure.” 

The whole strategy of offering two Intel lines gives HP “a tremendous 
advantage in the marketplace,” Rich Marcello, general manager and vice 
president of marketing for HP's Business-Critical Systems unit told HP 
World Magazine in an interview. “Instead of investing very wide across 
multiple product lines the way an IBM does, we'll be able to focus our 
investment” on two lines, he said.

platform, all of this bodes well for HP and its hundreds of thousands 
of loyal OpenVMS customers.
