HP Sharpens Blades

Hewlett-Packard, the blade server market leader, radically expanded its 
range of blade options by cranking up the most powerful blades and 
offering very low-power systems as well. HP announced the new and improved 
products yesterday. The announcements offer record-breaking 
performance, pricing and specs. 

HP's blade competition-IBM, Sun Microsystems and Dell-have their work 
cut out for them after this announcement. All are relative laggards in 
the blade market, and it looks as though HP may even widen its lead in 
the year to come.

Inside HP This Week

HP Gets Artistic

The National Gallery in London is working with Hewlett-Packard to scan 
and digitize its entire permanent collection of art. The project is 
scheduled to be complete in 2004, but in the meantime, HP has installed a 
Print on Demand kiosk so that visitors can print any of more than 900 
paintings in A2 (16.5 inches by 23.4 inches), A3 (11.7 inches by 16.5 
inches) and A4 (8.25 inches by 11.7 inches) size, while they wait. The 
system will help the gallery cut down on inventory and grab sales from 
patrons who before couldn't find the print they wanted. The system uses 
HP printers and the digital images are stored using HP servers and 
storage. The National Gallery has 4 terabytes of storage capacity. The 
gallery and HP have even teamed up on beautiful advertising, at right, to 
show off their artistic endeavor.
