HP telecom servers slim down

Hewlett-Packard has introduced a new server chassis for telecommunications customers, a 10.5-inch thick product that can accommodate as many as eight servers. The bh3700 product can accommodate server "blades" with Intel or HP processors running Windows, Linux or the HP-UX version of Linux. HP had positioned the preceding 22.75-inch thick bh7800 as its "blade" server chassis. But with the acquisition of Compaq Computer, the bh line is being sold for telecommunications customers only, with most customers steered toward Compaq's ProLiant blade line that packs more servers into a smaller chassis. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News

Energy Dept., IBM to unveil Science Grid

IBM is working with the Department of Energy to build a "grid" to interconnect numerous computers into a shared virtual supercomputing system that hundreds of researchers can tap into, Big Blue will announce Friday. The seed of the DOE Science Grid consists of just two computer systems at present, but in the future it will include others at the national laboratories of Lawrence Berkeley, Argonne, Oak Ridge and Pacific Northwest. The first two computers on the Science Grid will be a 3,328-processor Unix system at the DOE's National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC), which IBM designed, and a smaller and more recent 160-processor Intel system. In addition, a storage system at NERSC with 1.3 petabytes of space--about 30,000 times that of a desktop computer--will be attached. A core group of NERSC supercomputer users will be able to tap into the system, which originally wasn't expected to become a grid system until 2004. Grid computing, which pools networks of computers and storage systems into a larger collective of processing power, was born in academic circles. But IBM and others are making efforts to rework the idea as a tool for business computing as well. Hewlett-Packard, Compaq Computer, Sun Microsystems, Microsoft and others also are pushing grid computing. IBM expects other companies' systems will be used on the grid as well. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News

HP chops prices of Intel servers

Hewlett-Packard has lowered the price of its Intel-based servers by as much as 31 percent, the company said Tuesday. Prices for its rack-mounted 1.75-inch-thick LP1000r and 3.5-inch-thick LP2000r have been cut 11 percent to 31 percent, while prices for some special-purpose server "appliances" were cut 14 percent to 29 percent. The cuts were made possible by declining component costs and improvements to HP's manufacturing process, the company said. However, HP's Intel server business is suffering; HP lagged IBM, Dell Computer and top-ranked Compaq Computer in U.S. sales, according to Gartner Dataquest. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News
