FS [SOLD]: HP Integrity rx2600 (dual 1500 MHz “Madison”, 24 GB ...)


So, I decided I’m going to sell my last HP Integrity rx2600. I can’t justify it, in terms of power costs; the two rx2620s of mine will be more than enough for me.

For those unfamliar with the HP Integrity line of systems, or this system in particular: It’s a 100% 64-bit, 1- to 2-way, Intel Itanium 2 (IA-64) “Madison”-series server system. Besides a server, it can also be deployed as a rack-mounted workstation, as it’s very similar to the zx6000. For the latter purpose, both a [URL=“http://www.on-queue.com/PartQuote.cfm?part=A7531A”]“pedestal mounting” deskside conversion kit (P/N: A7531A) and a “office friendly” fan kit (P/N: AD244A) are additionally available.

It’s a particularly nice system if you’re interested in the so-called IPF (Itanium Processor Family) and the whole IA-64 architecture, along with the exclusive operating systems like OpenVMS and HP-UX of course. It’s a 100% 64-bit platform, as I said above, though the “Madison”-series processors offer some 32-bit, i.e. “IA-32”, x86 hardware emulation features. (See the Intel Itanium processor documentation for more information.)

Wow, you bring new standard into sales :thumbs up.


It was sold today. The new owner is (or owners, actually, are) going to use it for HP-UX.


Did you suggest him/her to give a chance for OpenVMS?


I did mention I ran it on that system, but I think the person that came to pick it up (on behalf also of his associate/friend) has a specific desire to run HP-UX. I think they plan to run a Serviceguard ‘cluster’ (big word, of course, compared to TruCluster and especially VMScluster).
