Quantifying the Benefits of Consolidating Older HP-UX Environments to HP Integrity i4 Servers


HP® announced five new servers based on the Intel® Itanium® Processor 9500 series (formerly known as "Poulson"). These new i4 servers offer faster performance, reduced energy use, expanded memory support, and improved RAS (Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability). TechWise Research published an updated white paper entitled Quantifying the Benefits of Consolidating Older HP-UX Environments to HP Integrity i4 Servers that quantifies the benefits of consolidating older HP-UX environments using these new i4 servers. Three consolidation scenarios using Integrity i4 blades were analyzed: an 8:2 consolidation of HP 9000 rp4440-8 application servers, a 4:2 consolidation of clustered rx8640 database servers, and a 10:2 consolidation of BL870c web servers. The final scenario involved consolidating four Superdome 2-32s systems with Itanium 9350 i2 processors into two new Superdome 2-32s systems with Itanium 9560 i4 processors. The analyses are based on current pricing for new Integrity i4 servers with support as well as Support Plus contracts for out of warranty servers. The analyses also use customer-reported data about the operational characteristics of the servers. The three Integrity i4 blade scenarios all have a payback period of less than a year while the Superdome scenario has a payback of 1.8 years. (December 2012).

Quantifying the Benefits of Consolidating Older HP-UX Environments


TechWise Research published two new papers this month for companies that run HP-UX on HP 9000 or older HP Integrity servers. Earlier this year HP introduced a new update to HP-UX 11i v3 and three new Integrity server blades based on the Intel Itanium 9300 processor. This paper focuses on consolidating multiple HP 9000 or older HP Integrity servers into fewer HP BL8xoc i2 blades running HP-UX 11i v3. The paper is entitled Quantifying the Benefits of Consolidating Older HP-UX Environments. It provides detailed quantitative analyses of costs and benefits associated with four specific consolidation scenarios. For the first time the TCU analysis also includes discounted cash flow analysis (Net Present Value and Internal Rate of Return). TechWise used a combination of system pricing and operational data to quantify the costs and benefits of four specific upgrade scenarios. All four scenarios have a payback period of 1.2 years or less and an internal rate of return of 74% or higher. (November 2010).

Quantifying the Total Cost of Upgrading older HP-UX 11i Environments to HP's New BL8x0c i2 Server Blades


TechWise Research published two new papers this month for companies that run HP-UX on HP 9000 or older HP Integrity servers. Earlier this year HP introduced a new update to HP-UX 11i v3 and three new Integrity server blades based on the Intel Itanium 9300 processor. This first paper focuses on upgrading single servers to one of these new HP blades running HP-UX 11i v3. The paper is entitled Quantifying the Total Cost of Upgrading older HP-UX 11i Environments to HP's New BL8x0c i2 Server Blades. It provides detailed quantitative analyses of costs and benefits associated with the upgrade. For the first time the TCU analysis also includes discounted cash flow analysis (Net Present Value and Internal Rate of Return). TechWise used a combination of system pricing and operational data to quantify the costs and benefits of four specific upgrade scenarios. All four scenarios have a payback period of 1.1 years or less and an internal rate of return of 78% or higher. (November 2010).

Presentation of HP-UX 11i v3 Upgrade Report


Presentation of the results of a study where 130 companies were surveyed for operational data for HP Integrity and HP 9000 servers running HP-UX 11i. Summary: HP Integrity servers are more reliable than HP 9000; upgrading to HP-UX 11i v3 on Integrity has many benefits. (May 2009)

The Benefits of Using HP Integrity Servers to Consolidate HP 9000 Servers


Analyses of potential savings from consolidating HP 9000 servers with HP-UX to Integrity servers with HP-UX 11i v3. Companies attribute savings to HP-UX 11i v3 features, technologies, and the power of new Integrity servers. (August 2007)

Quantifying the Total Cost of Upgrading HP-UX Environments from HP 9000 servers to HP Integrity servers


Detailed analysis of replacing a single HP 9000 server running HP-UX with one Integrity server. Summary: the majority of the 232 companies surveyed view Integrity servers to be as good, or better, than HP 9000 servers. (July 2007)
