Compaq ships its first 64-bit ProLiant server

Compaq Computer said it has started shipping the new ProLiant DL590/64, its first 64-bit industry-standard server based on Intel Corp.'s Itanium processor.

With a price that starts at US$23,000 for a dual-processor, 1GB system, the ProLiant DL590/64 is being marketed to customers with optimized enterprise solutions for Internet and business-critical applications that require memory-intensive computing capabilities, the company said in a statement.

The server is available for order today via Compaq Direct Plus or reseller channels, Compaq said.

The new ProLiant model supports up to four Intel Itanium-based processors and up to 64GB of standard Error Checking and Correcting memory and synchronous dynamic RAM in a space-saving 7U (1 U equals 7.5 in.), the company said.

Built around the Intel 82460GX chip set, the DL590/64 incorporates Compaq management utilities such as Compaq Insight Manager, power supply utility and array controller utility to deliver the performance, availability and manageability required for Itanium-based applications, the company said.
