How is that in any way End of Life of a product?!? Maybe you don't know but Oracle is a direct competitor with HP and Intel in the non x86 CPU market after their aquisition of SUN...
Right, because you say so Steevo. Companies pay money to sell stuff not make money.
AS/400 is a dead architecture and as you can see in this thread Itanium chips are currently produced. But like I've said, I'm wasting my time here, you people know it all there's no point in me trying to share something with you...
I didn't say anything other than you have not provided anything other than your own sayings.
First, Oracle was dumping Itanium, and HP and Intel sued them.
Now that we have that cleared up lets move on to.
Intel promised another architecture by now that fixes the heat, power consumption and performance issues and this chip has and is already late. Now they are saying Xeon will be more than capable of what Itanium is doing now.
HP PAID Intel almost 700 MILLION dollars to keep making Itanium so their artificially created hardware niche will survive.
AS/400 is a generic term, how about Zseries servers, that kick the shit out of Itanium systems by at least a factor of 2 and in many applications closer to 6? The issues that IBM and user face is the lengthy process to become a certified tech, and once you are companies want you to have experience. But the pay is amazing, a friend makes well into 6 figures to babysit two tandem servers that some hospitals in south Florida use.
So in short, the Itanic is going away, Xeon, and Knights corner are on the way in.
