The US-based computing and imaging systems provider Hewlett-Packard Co (HP) has launched a midrange Unix server called HP Server rp8400.

The new server uses up to 16 PA-RISC 8700 processors, extending HP's mid-range Unix server portfolio which includes the up-to-eight processor HP Server rp7400 (formerly known as the N-class server), and it runs HP-UX 11i - HP's version of the Unix operating system.

According to HP, the rp8400 offers the best performance of any mid-range server on the market based on TPC-C benchmarking, surpassing IBM's new p660 Model 6M1 mid-range server by 33%. HP also claims that its product provides better Internet performance and Java application handling than other similar servers.

The HP Server rp8400 is available immediately, priced from USD124,000.
