IDC-ranked leader in the UNIX server market, HP is utilising adaptive infrastructure technology to develop its new server range. "This is dictating the way technology is getting developed,'' observed Pallab Talukdar, Director-Business Critical Systems, Enterprise Systems Group, HP India Pvt Ltd referring to the increased use of adaptive technology in HP servers.
Extending its UNIX server portfolio, HP introduced two new servers, the HP Server rp2405 and rp5405 in Bangalore today. The new additions are expected to increase HP's marketshare in the Indian UNIX server market. HP holds a 42 per cent share in the $38 million UNIX server market as per IDC valuations for the second quarter of fiscal 2002-03. These products would be exclusively marketed by HP's channel partners across India.
The server market has further been buoyed by the recent development announcements by Intel regarding its Itanium processor.
According to Mr. Talukdar, HP's vision for its server business beholds, "converging the server platform around the 64-bit processor core. This will take place over the next few years where standardisation of servers based on the Itanium architecture will occur.''
As of now, HP is seeking to increase market presence with the new servers priced between Rs. 2.8 lakhs to Rs. 8.9 lakhs for the HPrp2405 and Rs. 14.2 lakhs and Rs. 29 lakhs for the HP Server rp5405.
