HP upgrades low-end Unix server

Hewlett-Packard has brought its new PA-8700 chip to its low-end server line, beefing up the four-processor L-class server with the faster CPU as expected and renaming the product the rp5400. The systems, costing $16,900 for a bare-bones configuration, competes against Linux and Windows servers from a host of companies, but more directly with IBM's new p610 and Sun's new V880. Customers for the rp5400 include Best Buy, ChevronTexaco, DaimlerChrysler and Quaker Foods & Beverages, HP said.
