HP Expands Integrity NonStop Server Line, Delivering Unparalleled Performance at Low Cost


HP today announced the new, entry-level HP Integrity NonStop NS2000 server family, which delivers high performance and fault-tolerance at the lowest cost available for a multi-core Integrity NonStop system.

The NS2000 is ideal for small and midsized organizations in the healthcare, financial services and telecommunications industries, as well as customers in emerging markets. It allows organizations to cost-effectively meet the high availability and scalability of their business. Designed with the full benefits of HP NonStop technology, the NS2000 family paves the way for future growth without the worry of application compatibility.

“There is a large segment of smaller enterprise customers that tends to be priced out of the market for high-end, fault-tolerant servers,” said Jim Johnson, chief executive officer of the research company Standish Group. “For those customers, the NS2000 server offers significant value and additional choice for application availability and fault tolerance.”

The new rack-mounted NS2000 servers are simple to manage and fully leverage the power of Intel® Itanium® multi-core processors to deliver:

  • Double the performance capacity of previous NonStop entry-class systems.
  • 24/7 data availability and real-time access to critical business applications.
  • A cost-effective development and test platform for HP Integrity NonStop BladeSystem customers. The NS2000 closely matches their production environments with a common software and I/O infrastructure.
  • A target migration platform for current HP NonStop S-series customers. The NS2000 runs the same applications, offering complete investment protection by extending existing solution capabilities.

“Customers with limited IT resources are looking for cost-effective solutions that quickly and easily deliver the fault-tolerant capabilities they need to minimize risk of downtime,” said Winston Prather, general manager, NonStop, HP. “The NS2000 Integrity family delivers the performance and reliability our customers need right out of the box, at a very competitive price point.”

The HP Integrity NonStop NS2000 server family is available worldwide in a variety of configurations based on specific customer requirements. Customers have a choice of four- or eight-core hardware base bundles, 8 gigabytes (GB) or 16 GB memory per processor, as well as AC and DC powered versions.

Pricing information is available by contacting a local HP representative.
