  2. Efficiency
  3. Scalability

How We See IT:

Meet HP’s answer to its dearly beloved and now retired HP 9000 Superdome. The HP (Integrity) Superdome 2 is completely scalable and promises high-availability for those seeking something to power your mission-critical environment. With a lower cost of entry than its older counterpart, users can build a system that suits their needs.

High Reliability

If high-reliability and uptime are at the forefront of your IT infrastructure concerns, the HP Superdome 2 is the product for you. The unit’s power-on-once technology keeps the system running with self-diagnosing and self-healing features, resulting in a 440% reliability boost. The passive backplane removes points of failure to prevent downtime, while the Superdome 2 Analysis Engine predicts errors before they happen.


Based on HP’s Converged Infrastructure strategy, the Superdome 2 is built on a common-bladed architecture with common components and common management environments across all HP so that your infrastructure is easily and efficiently managed. This modular- bladed design includes standard racks and common components to keep things simple across all platforms. Additionally, the Superdome 2 utilizes a common server management framework that is supported from x86 to Superdome 2. Within the system, fault-tolerant Crossbar Fabric helps find the optimal route between the blades and I/O, resulting in the fastest possible transactions and greatest level of efficiency for your data.


Start small and build as you go with 8-socket, 16-socket and 32-socket configurations that allow you to scale as you grow. The Superdome 2 is the only UNIX server in the industry that allows flexible scaling by enabling I/O to scale independent of processors. Dynamic virtualization capabilities round off a suite of features that make this server perfect for quickly scaling your infrastructure to your needs. Superdome 2’s quick and acute scalability means that you can completely customize your system to suit the needs of your application and make changes when needed.
