Itanium-based units are nearly ready to ship

The first servers and workstations built around the long-awaited 64-bit Itanium processor will roll off production lines next week.

Hewlett-Packard Co., which spent about six years co-developing the Itanium with Intel Corp., will ship a dual-processor i2000 workstation June 11, said Barry Crume, the product line business manager. Later this summer, HP will release a four-way rx4610 server and 16-way rx9610 server, Crume said.

The i2000 will have copies of three 64-bit operating systems: HP's proprietary HP-UX 11i Version 1.5, Red Hat Linux 7.1 from Red Hat Inc. of Durham, N.C., and Microsoft Corp.'s prerelease Windows XP 64-bit Edition.
