Superdome

Contributor(s): Gloria Goodwin
Superdome is a high-end 64-bit, Hewlett-Packard (HP) PA-8600 processor-based UNIX server designed for e-commerce customers using very large databases. Superdome is available in three configurations and comes bundled with HP's e-service software packages and customer support options. The server is set to run on HP-UX 11i, HP's version of UNIX, but is intended to be compatible with Windows and Linux operating systems sometime in the future. One of Superdome's main features is the ability to be split into several partitions, each with its own operating system. Partitions defined in hardware can be further subdivided into software-based virtual partitions which allow resources, such as processor power or communication bandwidth, to be assigned to specific jobs.
