Hitachi to OEM Multiprocessor Servers for Unisys

Unisys Corp. announced the signing of an OEM agreement in which Unisys will provide servers based on the Unisys Cellular MultiProcessing (CMP) server architecture to Hitachi Ltd. for sale in Japan.

Unisys CMP is the only server architecture to take full advantage of Windows 2000 Datacenter’s support for 32 processors.

Unisys CMP is designed for Intel IA-64 Itanium processors and can accommodate up to 32 Intel IA-32 Pentium III Xeon processors, which can be field-upgraded to Itanium processors or combined with Itanium processors in the same machine. These capabilities enable the ES7000 to match the performance of Unix systems in enterprise e-business and other critical applications at a fraction of the cost.

Unisys is also providing CMP server technology under OEM agreements to Compaq, Dell, HP, and ICL. – Isaac Slepner
