Hewlett-Packard on Tuesday announced a programme to help users of its workstations and servers migrate to IA-64.
HP is jointly developing the IA-64 processor architecture with Intel. The first chip based on the architecture is code-named Merced and is expected to be launched in 1999. HP has announced that it will eventually move from its own PA-RISC architecture to IA-64, which will be compatible with PA-RISC as well as with Intel's 32-bit processors.
The IA-64 Planning Services that HP announced will be available worldwide. HP said it will help users of PA-RISC based workstations and servers to optimise existing applications for future IA-64 systems.
