   - HP Enhances Server Line


__________HP Enhances Server Line___________
Hewlett-Packard is prepping its 25-year-old proprietary 3000 
server line for E-business applications. Its new addition to 
the series, the HP 3000 989KS/x50 server, will include Web-
enabling technologies, advanced HP AutoRAID storage, and 
integrated HP OpenView system-management functionality.

The new models will be certified for running Apache on 
MPE/ix, which enables persistent connections, content 
negotiation, host-name identification, and name-based 
virtual hosts, among other features. They will also provide 
Java Database Connectivity support for data interoperability 
over the Internet, and Lightweight Directory Access Protocol 
X.500 support for device interoperability. The 1.3-terabyte 
AutoRAID Model 12H Disk Array offers the capacity, 
redundancy, and availability required for supporting 
Internet operations. HP says the array is tightly integrated 
with the hardware and includes automated functionality to 
reduce administration and management requirements. OpenView 
integration means customers can centrally manage the 3000 
along with the NT and Unix systems already running part of 
their E-business operations.

The servers are based on the 240-MHz PA 8200 RISC processor, 
which HP says is 25% faster than current systems. The 
hardware can support up to six processors, and systems will 
be priced between $102,900 and $217,900.
