Compaq ProLiant Servers To Support Latest Intel Processor

AUCKLAND, March 28, 2001 - Compaq Computer New Zealand has announced support for the new Intel Pentium III Xeon 900 MHz processor on its next generation 8-processor and 4-processor industry-standard ProLiant servers.

Available in New Zealand from late April 2001, Compaq anticipates a rapid take-up of the increased performance offered by the 8-processor ProLiant 8000 and ProLiant 8500 and the 4-processor ProLiant ML570 and ProLiant DL580.

"The next generation ProLiant servers will provide superior solutions for the high-end server-based computing required by complex e-Business applications." says Jeff Healey, Industry Standard Server Product Marketing Manager.
