HP’s LT 6000r Six-CPU Server


HP has re-entered the enterprise computing race with the release of its LT 6000r, a six-CPU server with improved performance and excellent transactional price/performance.

1u inches  in a 4U-high enclosure (1U = one rack unit = 1.75 ). HP's offering increased the density by 50%, which in turn increased the amount of computing power available in any given rack space. For example, Compaq's ProLiant 6400R (now renamed the DL580) can provide 40 CPUs in a 42U rack, the LT 6000r can provide 60 CPUs. It's other 4U competitors include the Dell PowerEdge 6350/6450, and IBM's Netfinity 6000R. This product is a big step for HP, whose servers - with the exception of the NetServer LPr - had Read More

Rackmount Server Sales Surge


Rack-optimized servers are reported to have increased their quarter-over-quarter unit sales by over 50%

1u inches  buying an eight-CPU, 7U-high (1U = one rack unit = 1.75 high), companies like ISPs are choosing to buy 1U-high servers that have one or two CPUs. The incremental cost to add a server is significantly lower for these units, making them desirable for companies expecting healthy growth but still watching the dollars. Whatever the reason, we expect vendors and consumers to increase their focus on rackmount servers in the coming year. User Recommendations Although rackmount servers are not for everyone, Read More

Mobile Supply Chain Management: The Dream Is Becoming a Reality


Mobile computing is changing the way companies manage their entire business. The development of ultra-portable computing devices is geared to support a slew of mobile solutions to help you run your business on the fly.

That time saw the first attempts toward the development of ultra-portable solutions. But for the past five years, smartphones, along with the offerings Read More

Hewlett-Packard’s NetServer Division - #3 to Get Ready, or #4 to Go?


Hewlett-Packard is one of the leading computer companies in the world, but they have fallen to fourth place in the Intel-based server market. Will they move back to being a key player, or remain an also-ran?

1u inches  with the rackable version 1U larger than the Dell PowerEdge 4300, the user ends up losing some density of functionality, which increases cost and TCO. The LH 6000's price/performance is a strong attempt to reverse this trend, but it is only one product - HP needs to ripple this through its entire NetServer line. Looking for one-stop shopping for a heterogeneous environment As mentioned often herein, HP has arguably the most diverse product offering outside of IBM. This allows customers to buy from a man Read More

High-End Wintel-Based Rackmount Servers - The Big Get Bigger


A market analysis of Wintel-based rackmount servers: who are the key players, why they'll stay that way, their strengths, why a customer would want one, and where this market is heading.
