i have RP7410(with one cell board-12GB Mmeory ,875MHZ 4 processors) ..it is out of support and purchased long back .we are planing to migrate the dataabsea/pplication to Itanium pplatform..whihc server will best whcih can be replacemnet of RP7410 without compromising performance ?...i hv an RX6600 iwth 16GB mmeory and 2 * 1.56Ghz processor(4 logical processor) .is it ok or i need to go for higher servers?..which server will be the best option (is it blade servers will do ?)
Need suggestions from experts ....

If you already have an rx6600 server, I think it matches the rx2880 i2 in performance, but you will need twice as many processors for that.
But it may be worth to investigate if the cost & maintenance of an rx2880 i2 is better in the long run that staying on the rx6600.

u can use rx2800 i2 server like a new applciation server, about comparaison u can use this site :
about rx6600 its entry level server for integrity plateform, rp7410 is mid-Range server on PA-RISC plateform.
So, now we have two case:
1- two different plateform -PA-RISC and Itanium ( need to verify if ur applcation binary code is compatible with Itanium compiled code)
2-Verify if ur server configuration can be atteigned on the new server ( if there's nPar configuration , vPar or HPVM)
also verify the compatiblity of application with new HPUX version that u will use it on your new server.
Contacting HP Support is the best answer , else u have to make a plan for that just to be sure that you wiil not loose any data .
