Simplified Management

Dec. 1, 2006

HP designed its rx3600 server with remote operations in mind, making it ideal for clustered, as well as distributed environments. It is compatible with several 64-bit operating systems, including HP-UX 11i v2 (June 2006 update); Linux (Red Hat Enterprise Linux As 4 update 3 and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10); Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition; and, OpenVMS 8.3. One or two dual-core Intel Itanium 2 processor may be installed running at up to 1.6 GHz each, with up to 96GB of RAM and up to eight 2.5-inch hot-pluggable SAS SCSI drives, in a compact, internally expandable 4U EIA enclosure. HP’s new zx2 chipset compliments the Itanium 2 CPUs, providing lower memory latency and increased memory and I/O subsystem availability, which results in improved reliability and availability, according to HP. Designed to be highly manageable and reliable, the rx3600 features hot-swappable redundant power and fans; double DRAM chip spare, which enables the server to recover even if two DRAMs fail; PCI online repair; an integrated Integrity iLO 2 management processor and high-availability clustering support. The CPUs can be swapped out with the next iteration of Intel’s Itanium 2 processor, requiring only a firmware update, making the rx3600 easily upgraded. Integrated management software includes: HP Systems Insight Manager and HP OpenView.
