Our Supercomputer - HP rp8400
the Server - HP rp8400
HP rp8400 is the leading Superdome class midrange server from Hewlett-Packard, USA. The server is capable of running almost all enterprise applications with 24 Hours 365 days running capability per year. rp8400 is a robust server in many areas.
No of processors, processing speed, yielding computation power (i.e., throughput of the server), mass storage capacity, backup storage capacity, redundant power supply, expandability, customization etc are the areas where this server is highly competent with other superdome class servers such as PARAM.
The HP server rp8400 borrows revolutionary DNA memory subsystem technology from the high-end HP Superdome to reduce system latencies and increase bandwidth, boosting application performance. With 16 PA-8700 CPUs, 8GB of memory (expandable up to 64 GB), and 16GB/sec of system bandwidth, the HP server rp8400 transforms the midrange server into a high-end powerhouse.
The HP server rp8400 offers exceptional flexibility with dynamic partitioning, unmatched application availability, and goal-based workload management solutions. HP's high-availability feature set, unparalleled in the technical computing industry, improves time-to-market by reducing downtime risk and allowing for more precise resource planning. In addition, the HP server rp8400 has the best performance density ratio in the industry, reducing facilities costs and lowering floor space requirements.
With the HP server rp8400 is compatible with PA-RISC and Itanium™ technology which will host multiple operating systems on this powerful server. Itanium on HP will support Linux, HP UX & Windows. Our server HP rp8400 is ready for portable with another Itanium server.
