HP Debuts New 6-Way Server

Hewlett-Packard Co. today released two new products for the four-way PC server market: the HP NetServer LH 6000 and LT 6000r systems, two six-way servers that fall in the lower price range of four-way systems.

The HP (www.hp.com) NetServer LH 6000 system achieved the number one spot on the Transaction Processing Performance Council's (TPC, www.tpc.org) TPC-C Top Ten price/performance list at $13.95/transactions per minute (tpmC). At 33,136 tpmC, the server performed 27 percent better than a four-way Compaq (www.compaq.com) ProLiant 6400 and 60 percent better than a similarly configured four-way Sun (www.sun.com) Enterprise 450. In additional benchmark testing, the six-way HP NetServer LH 6000 system also outperformed a similarly configured four-way Compaq ProLiant 6400r by more than 40 percent.

The HP NetServer LH 6000 system provides expansion for up to six Intel (www.intel.com) Pentium III Xeon processors, 8 GB of PC 133 MHz SDRAM, eight 64-bit I/O slots, and up to 12 internal Ultra2 SCSI drives. The server is optimized for I/O and storage-intensive applications, including e-commerce, serving Web sites, ERP, and messaging.

The HP NetServer LT 6000r system has a similar feature set, but is packaged in a 4U form-factor, providing the power of up to 60 processors in a standard 40U rack.

The NetServer LH 6000 system will retail beginning at $7,299 and the NetServer LT 6000r will retail beginning at $8,199. Both systems are currently available. -- Isaac Slepner
