Japanese telco buys mammoth HP server

Japanese telecommunications company KDDI has bought super-high-end NonStop servers from Hewlett-Packard to run its mobile data delivery system for cell phones, the companies said Thursday. KDDI, which has 17 million mobile phone subscribers, bought a 120-processor NonStop S-series machine to run multimedia services for transmitting e-mail, photos, music, movies and other information.

HP declined to say how much the deal was worth, but systems of that size typically cost tens of millions of dollars. Opsol Integrators, which sells the messaging software KDDI uses, helped to install the system.
