Alternative Thinking about Business and Technology

Hewlett-Packard has been in the news lately for several innovative developments. For example, HP extended its blade server platform to include new blades based on its mission-critical NonStop server platform. It also introduced the first fault-tolerant blade server, which the company claims offers a lower total cost of ownership than competing products, including IBM mainframe applications.

Hewlett-Packard Co. is making its NonStop fault-tolerant technology, the high-end, mission-critical system widely used by banks, telecommunications providers and government emergency services for online transaction processing, available on a blade server. The company said the move will significantly lower the cost of using the technology. Blade servers are one of the hottest categories in computing. Now HP hopes to use these thin systems as a wedge into IBM's safest stronghold.
