HP (NYSE: HPQ) has announced "Odyssey," a project with a goal of redefining the future of mission-critical computing with a development roadmap that HP said will unify UNIX and x86 server architectures to bring industry-leading availability, increased performance and uncompromising client choice to a single platform. HP also said its new development roadmap includes ongoing innovations to HP Integrity servers, HP NonStop systems and the HP-UX and OpenVMS operating systems.


 

"Organizations are challenged with increasingly stringent service-level agreements for their most demanding workloads, along with the pressure to be more efficient with their IT budgets and resources. They need the availability and resilience of UNIX-based platforms along with the familiarity and cost-efficiency of industry-standard platforms.

"Using advanced technology across a common, modular HP BladeSystem architecture, HP is developing platforms to enable clients to choose the best environment aligned to their organizations’ needs without compromise, helping ensure investment protection for the long term.

"HP’s new development roadmap includes ongoing innovations to HP Integrity servers, HP NonStop systems and the HP-UX and OpenVMS operating systems. The roadmap also includes delivering blades with Intel Xeon processors for the HP Superdome 2 enclosure (code name 'DragonHawk') and the scalable c-Class blade enclosures (code named 'HydraLynx'), while fortifying Windows and Linux environments with innovations from HP-UX within the next two years."
