HP-UX 11i, Integrity, mission-critical, SOX, UNIX
Since I promised to share as often as possible on the topic of operating systems and especially those related to organizational IT, I will take a moment to outline what were announced today as enhancements for the March, 2010 release of HP-UX 11i.
Virtualization: Integrity Virtual Machines 4.2 is now available, with a few nice capabilities like automatic memory reallocation, a new storage reporting tool, and the ability to temporarily start and stop the virtual machine
Green and environmental care: In order to reduce the amount of DVDs floating around or being used as Frisbees, HP has now extended e-Delivery beyond the Americas to now support the entire world. This should reduce paper and plastic consumption by over 150 tons
Reduce Total Cost of Ownership: The Secure Resource Partitions for HP-UX 11i have integrated new architecture for SAP
Decrease human error: The HP-UX 11i Logical Volume Manager now supports the ability to take snapshots of entire system configurations at the volume level
Security: HP-UX 11i is now validated by EAL4 Common Criteria certification. Maintain stringent security in compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002
The above is a short list of the few new capabilities that I think are most notable. The main update page has an exhaustive list and far more details, should you need them. And may I take a moment to say thank you to all the hard working engineers and product planners who make HP-UX 11i the great OS it is!
