NEC and HP Expand Enterprise Computing Alliance to x86

Last week, HP and NEC announced an expansion of their global alliance to collaborate on joint engineering for mission-critical and blade servers for enterprise clients.

Since 1995, NEC and HP have been strategic alliance partners, focused on NEC's role as a provider of large-scale, mission-critical enterprise IT systems built on HP's Unix-based operating system, HP-UX.


The collaboration previously focused on HP-UX, HP Integrity servers and NEC NX7700i servers.  The companies are extending their alliance to include next-generation, mission-critical x86 systems. This will include DragonHawk," HP's future, scalable x86 infrastructure based on HP Superdome 2 and blade server technology. HP and NEC also plan to increase worldwide delivery of joint solutions, providing clients with greater flexibility, a broader choice of solutions to match their specific enterprise needs and continued investment protection for mission-critical environments, consistent with HP Project Odyssey.

"Performance and reliability are vital to mission-critical computing clients and the business-critical workloads they will deploy into the next decade," said Mark Potter, senior vice president and general manager, Servers, HP. "By aligning our expertise, HP and NEC will drive enterprise server technology forward, allowing our joint clients to protect and grow their current and future investments."
