Small review of HP Integrity RX3600 Server

The HP Integrity rx3600 Server is a powerful entryclass workhorse that you can trust for business-critical application and database workloads. This next-generation Integrity server features a new architecture that helps you prepare for the future by delivering significantly expanded computing capabilities. The Integrity rx3600 Server’s virtualisation, scalability and availability features make it an ideal choice for entry-level workload consolidation – helping you to accelerate business growth, lower costs and mitigate risk.

It is also excellent in clustered and distributed environments – providing enterprise-class availability while meeting demanding requirements of supply-chain management, enterprise resource planning, billing, human resource applications, business intelligence, Java™ and transaction workloads.

The Integrity rx3600 Server’s balanced architecture, designed around the HP zx2 Chipset, delivers high levels of capacity and availability to protect your investment further. The Integrity rx3600 Server can scale to two processors and four cores, and can support up to 192 GB of memory and eight internal hard disk drives. It supports your choice of broad

Advantage of HP Integrity RX3600 Server

With the Integrity rx3600 Server, you have the flexibility to deploy a high-performing standalone, clustered or distributed computing model. For example, you can place one server in each of your branch offices and manage every one of them remotely. Powerful, integrated management tools – including HP Systems Insight Manager, HP Integrity Essentials, Integrated Lights Out (iLO 2) remote

The large internal disk capacity gives you flexibility in storage options. You can use internal storage as a self-contained database, which delivers the advantages of managing internal storage through server management tools and requires fewer devices. This solution adds up to a cost-effective ‘database-in-a-box’. When you use it with HP Integrity Virtual Machines, the savings that can be realised through workload and server consolidation are immense – along with the resulting improvements in resource utilisation. Or, you can extend your system to incorporate the industry-leading HP StorageWorks range of network storage solutions, which makes it easy for you to increase information availability while cutting costs radically


The new HP zx2 Chipset fully unleashes the power of the Intel Itanium processor by lowering memory latencies; providing extensive reliability, availability and serviceability features; and increasing memory and I/O subsystem scalability. This type of flexible capacity within the server – enabling increased, balanced performance throughout transactional and batch workloads as well as Java applications and technical computing workloads – lowers costs further because it reduces the need for additional servers.
