HP MIPS R16000 based server

Looks like HP just introduced a MIPS R16000 based server, but it seems to be just for telecomunications and networking, running NonStop OS

can't be sure, but it looks like this line has had mips processors for a while.

the 1972-x S86000 uses two R14K's
the 1971-x uses two R14K's
so does the 1962
the '61 uses two R12K's
the '73 uses 14's the '74 uses 16's.

Non Stop have been on Mips for years (before they were bought by compaq) HP's long term goal is to move them onto Itanium, basically it's extremely high availablity servers. Used alot in the financial world.

Hard to say, but last time i heard they had booted Himalaya NSK (non-stop kernel) on itanium hardware. It ties in with them moving OpenVMS to itanium (which is done last i heard - bout to ship) as well as HP-UX.

apparently while HP wanted out of itanium design, and production, they still want to move their HPPA, and Alpha designs over to IA-64.
