"Intel launched what will be its largest server and storage
refresh beginning Monday with the introduction of the Itanium 9300
line, the long-delayed "Tukwila" family of quad-core Itanium
"Itanium was a joint venture by Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) and a
number of server firms when it first started, but many have since
dropped out. Only HP (NYSE: HPQ) remains and has been transitioning
its mission-critical servers from the proprietary PA-RISC processor
to Itanium for several years.
"Intel claims that 80 percent of the Global 100 corporations
have chosen Itanium-based servers for mission-critical
applications. One example is the Tokyo Stock Exchange, which spent
18 months testing a Fujitsu PrimeQuest server running a
Linux/Itanium 9300 environment, and finally switched off its
mainframe last month."
