Next week, Hewlett-Packard will fire its latest salvo in the workgroup server battle, claiming its new two-processor Risc-based model can outperform four-processor systems from Compaq and Sun.
The new model, part of HP's D-Series Enterprise server range, is based on two 180MHz 64-bit PA-Risc 8000 processors, running HP/UX Unix. The server's price is significantly higher than those of its competitors at around $26,000, compared to sub-$15,000 models from Compaq and Sun.
However, the HP model comes with more storage than direct rivals and according to the company, offers higher performance than its cheaper competition.
