IBM path arrow

From advanced mission-critical environments to infrastructure standardization on Linux or Windows, HP has the right solution to meet your needs―offering both flexibility and choice.

Choose from one of these paths:

  • Path: HP-UX 11i on HP Integrity

    With HP-UX 11i on HP Integrity servers you can:
    • Preserve UNIX skills and software assets
    • Improve utilization
    • Simplify and automate management and processes

    all in a safer, more agile UNIX mission-critical operating environment.

    Choose this path if you want to consolidate older SPARC environments or upgrade applications and databases while maintaining service levels. Learn more about HP-UX 11i on Integrity.

  • Path: Linux on HP ProLiant

    A new Linux-based HP ProLiant server can pay for itself in as little as six months. Due to inherent operating system similarities, Linux is a natural choice if you use Solaris. HP provides:
    • Linux QA testing
    • ProLiant Support Pack for manageability
    • Insight control suite for Linux
    • Solaris-to-Linux porting kit

    Our long-term relationship with both RedHat and SUSE include strong executive commitment, strategic engineering collaboration, product support and delivery.

    Choose this path if you want to drive down costs by migrating to a robust, UNIX-like open source operating system with industry-standard platforms. Linux on HP ProLiant servers based on the Intel Xeon processor E7 product family offer excellent price performance and are the ideal choice for the most demanding workloads.

  • Path: Windows on HP ProLiant

    HP is the "Number-one platform of choice for Windows Server solutions", according to IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Server Tracker. We enable backward compatibility with UNIX via native UNIX tools for Windows. Make a wise business decision and take advantage of the cost-savings and stability of a Windows ProLiant solution.

    Choose this path if you want to move to a more industry-standard platform. HP's dominance in the Windows market and the strategic relationship with Microsoft includes engineering, testing, delivering, and supporting Windows environments. Learn more about Windows on HP ProLiant servers.
