Streamline your operations with the right UNIX computing environment

HP-UX 11i v3 comes in four different Operating Environments (OE) packages designed to ease your high availability UNIX experience:

  • Base OE (BOE), to get comprehensive security and system management
  • Virtualization Server OE (VSE-OE), if your focus is resource optimization
  • High Availability OE (HA-OE), to achieve the highest levels of uptime
  • Data Center OE (DC-OE) which combines the VSE and HA OEs, for maximum flexibility and availability

These software stacks run on the full range of Integrity servers and come pre-integrated and tested by HP engineering, so you can be assured that your UNIX environment is complete and built to work together. In addition, your operations are simplified, avoiding the need to obtain costly external integration services or manage the additional software and its support separately.
