Introduction
This Customer Usage Guide provides an overview of several application
areas where the HP NetServer LPr can provide a highly capable and cost-
effective solution. The paper examines the nature of the application
requirements for server resources and discusses how the HP NetServer LPr
meets those requirements. Clustering and server consolidation configurations
on the HP NetServer LPr are also discussed. The paper concludes by
addressing several key customer concerns in a question-and-answer format.
Performance, density, expandability
The HP NetServer LPr delivers an incredibly exceptional performance in a very
compact, 2U-form factor (3.5 inches high). This general-purpose server is a
rack-mounted powerhouse, with either one or two of the fastest Intel Pentium
III processors and a 100 MHz front-side bus that provides great performance,
rapid data transfer and phenomenal price/performance. Because this server
has such a thin profile, it is easy for an
IT facility to expand by adding more
servers into the rack, up to 20 servers
(40 processors) in a 2 meter rack. The
HP NetServer LPr provides the best
value choice for those applications that
require great performance, availability,
management features and space
efficiency in a cost-effective package.
Applications that fit these criteria are
listed in Table 1 and discussed in detail
in the remainder of this paper.
