Compaq, IBM Roll Out New Server Hardware

Compaq Computer Corp. and IBM Corp. unveiled Intel-based server hardware this week.

Compaq introduced systems with memory protection features and a set of server appliances. IBM showed off a pair of entry-level servers based on Intel's Tualatin processor.

In launching two new ProLiant servers, Compaq announced a memory protection roadmap called the Advanced Memory Protection Architecture. The ProLiant DL380 and ProLiant ML370 will ship in July with the first implementation of the architecture, DIMM-level memory fail-over without downtime. Future servers will provide for hot-plug memory and RAID memory, Compaq says.

The DL380 is a 2-processor, 2U rack server. The ML370 is a 2-U tower server.

Compaq introduced two new appliance servers. The company expanded its TaskSmart C-series of content caching servers with the TaskSmart C4000, available in July starting at $7,199. The company also introduced a new W-series of TaskSmart servers for Web hosting with the TaskSmart W2200, starting at $1,799.

IBM's two new servers are part of its Project eLiza initiative for creating self-managing servers. The IBM eServer xSeries 232 and 342 feature Intel's Tualatin Pentium III 1.13 GHz processors. Both are 2-processor servers; the 342 is a 3U rack-mountable server.

IBM also made the Tualatin processor available in its 1U x330 server.
