The Intel® Itanium® processor family provides the foundation for mainframe-class computing systems that offers greater flexibility and better cost models than traditional mainframe and high-end RISC systems. Itanium®-based servers deliver powerful and scalable performance for UNIX and mainframe environments, along with world-class availability for your most mission-critical applications.

Overview

Because Itanium processors are available in commercial off-the-shelf hardware from a rich ecosystem of system and solution providers, they can quickly meet mission-critical needs. Itanium processor-based servers are incredibly scalable, allowing configuration in systems of as many as 512 processors and a full petabyte (1024TB) of RAM. Together with full support for both 32-bit and 64-bit applications, that capacity provides unmatched flexibility in tailoring systems to your enterprise needs.

Mission-Critical Servers and RISC Replacement

The new Intel® Itanium® processor 9300 series delivers a major step forward in this processor family. It provides more than double the performance of the Intel® Itanium® processor 9100 series, along with greater scalability and enhanced Reliability, Availability and Serviceability (RAS) features. Systems based on this new processor are ideal for running demanding enterprise applications, such as database, business intelligence and enterprise resource planning (ERP). The most significant improvements in the Intel Itanium processor 9300 series include:
