    Compaq System Roadmap with IPF

  • Reasons behind the IPF migrationBusiness planning for the fiscal 2001 year precipitated a competitive analysisEV7 Marvel systems were clearly competitive industry leading productsEV8 would be competitive but differentiation compared to previous products would be lessInvestment to execute flawlessly would be significant and resource availability added great riskConclusion of the evaluation team was that we need a microprocessor partner (Intel IPF)Executive review and analysis lead to same conclusions and a collaboration with Intel was pursued.

  • What does this mean?Systems that previously were all internal Compaq Intellectual property contain Intels IP. Stricter control on information dissemination is requiredSoftware comes from 4 major sources:OpenVMSTru64 UnixWindowsLinuxProtection of external IP prevents previous levels of detail without NDAs for both Compaq and the external partners

  • ISV PortingWorking jointly with IntelEngaging top-tier partners early to:Identify their requirementsGet input on White Papers and other tools to assist ISVs in porting Develop joint plans with the ISVs for early adoption with timelines and commitmentsEstablish a high level engagement model and implementation plan to move forward rapidly

  • Primary ObjectiveDevelop a full portfolio of partners to support the top Solutions for our customers

    Near term DeliverablesWhite Papers and other tools to guide ISV porting effortsCompaq technical resources to work on site with key ISVs Early IPF seed units for key partnersJoint marketing & migration plans with key ISVs

    ISV Program Moving Forward

  • The Strength of Compaq Enterprise Systems Continues! PerformanceCoupling the Itanium microprocessor with Compaq systems architecture, storage architecture, devices and other infrastructure tools and products, gives our customers the best price/performance in enterprise computing. ScalabilityLarge, scalable system engineering of Compaq will continue to give customers the best reliability, scalability, availability and securityAvailabilityAvailability and ease-of-manage provided through our OpenVMS and Tru64 UNIX operating systems will continue to provide the best RAS in the industry.Long term investment in Alpha environment is secured

  • This timeline illustrates the Operating System roadmap view. Notice that we start with Itanium Processor Family I for ISV development and testing with a plan for having the OpenVMS port complete in 2004.

    This slide shows the VMS release timeline relative to the Alpha chip plans and the Itanium Platform Family plans. On Alpha, we will continue to deliver leading chip performance and new systems out through 2007/2008, and support these systems out through 2012/2013.Compaq shipped OpenVMS V7.3 earlier this year, and will ship an update release (V7.3-1) in H1CY02. The plan is for OpenVMS on Alpha and IPF to share common sources. First boot of OpenVMS on IPF is expected in the 2nd half of 2002, with the first external shipment in H1CY2003. Well have a production quality release of OpenVMS on IPF in H1CY2004!- The slide title is right on the money (use whatever word translates that gets the point across). THE ESSENCE OF ALPHA DOES CONTINUE! There is no abandonment here. Your investment is secure. By joining Itanium Processor Family microprocessor architecture with Compaq system, storage and other device architectures and products, we believe we will be continuing to give our customers the best price/performance in enterprise computing.And, the expertise that Compaq has had for many years in large scalable system engineering will continue to give our customers the best reliability, security, availability and security; now and in the future.One of the major requirements of IT infrastructure today and in the future will be availability. We will continue to bring the maximum availability and ease of system management to you, through our OpenVMS and OpenVMS operating environments.So you can see, the ESSENCE OF ALPHA really does continue.
