Nonstop servers are widely used in the financial sector.

According to HP, the Integrity Nonstop will be the first commercial server that can scale to up to 4,080 Itanium 2 processors.

The HP Integrity Nonstop platform features a virtual application environment to distribute the application, middleware and data across multiple nodes.

It also contains built-in clustering technology across the entire application infrastructure, enabling linear scalability of more than 2,000 times without user interruption, HP said.

The company has also released the final processor upgrade for its HP 9000 Unix servers. These complete HP's PA-Risc server roadmap and will help the transition to standards-based Integrity servers, the company said.

It will be easy to upgrade the HP 9000 servers to multiple generations of Intel Itanium processors, HP said, adding that more than 4,000 applications are now available on HP Integrity servers.

"The enhanced HP 9000 server line provides a valuable platform for our customers and an easy transition to HP Integrity servers," said Don Jenkins, HP's vice-president of marketing, business-critical servers.
