HPE Integrity NonStop NS2400 Server
For businesses that run nonstop
When downtime is not an option
In a world that never stops, having a nonstop business environment is critical. With today’s customers expecting instant access to information and services, downtime is simply not an option.
HPE Integrity NonStop servers are widely recognized as one of the best choices for complex enterprise applications. Their integrated hardware, operating system, and database stack provide the ultimate in scalability and contribute to a server platform with one of the highest built-in reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) levels in the industry.
HPE Integrity NonStop NS2400 Servers run on the J-series HPE NonStop operating system. They share the same unique HPE NonStop platform attributes, such as low total cost of ownership (TCO), real-time database, integrated stack, end-to-end security, and massive scalability, while delivering the same high level of availability and data integrity as the high-end HPE BladeSystem.
Powered by the Intel Itanium Processor 9500 Series, you gain the advantage of one of the world’s most available systems, leveraging an innovative microprocessor technology that can target multiple demand levels of complex applications with improved price and performance.
The HPE Integrity NonStop NS2400 Server provides users with a single-system view of applications. And it can efficiently and transparently make use of up to four processors to promote fast response times in a variety of demanding applications. These include complex payment systems, billing environments, securities trading, and electronic patient records solutions.
The HPE Integrity NonStop NS2400 commercial server is an AC-powered server packaged in a standard commercial rack. The HPE Integrity NonStop NS2400T Server comes in a commercial rack and is DC-powered (-48V). The HPE Integrity NonStop NS2400ST Server is packaged in an extra-sturdy seismic rack and is also DC-powered (-48V).

Next-generation technology at competitive price points
By using industry-standard components and utilizing the traditional advantage of HPE Integrity NonStop servers with fully integrated hardware and software, you can count on a cost-effective solution with the highest application availability and data integrity. In fact, HPE Integrity NonStop NS2400 Servers are offered at a price point that is comparable to open source alternatives and to the prior generation of entry-class HPE Integrity NonStop servers.
And, as your business needs evolve and user demand grows, HPE Integrity NonStop NS2400 Servers will support your complex application requirements. Systems can start out with as few as two physical processors and grow to four physical processors. Using the advanced Intel Itanium architecture, these systems deliver much more work per clock cycle than other processors, thus providing even greater performance.
Powered by the industry-standard Intel Itanium processor, HPE Integrity NonStop servers are uniquely designed to deliver the highest levels of availability and reliability, with ultimate scalability and data integrity for the most demanding environments.
Innovation to meet changing business demands
HPE Integrity NonStop NS2400 Servers provide an additional option for meeting your real-time business needs, delivering immediate business interaction with outstanding levels of service. To help you respond to changing business demands, the HPE Integrity NonStop mission-critical operating environment offers high flexibility by providing the ability to distribute applications across nodes transparently, spreading risk geographically.
Figure 1 provides an architectural view of the server processing power of the HPE Integrity NonStop NS2400 platform.
This platform provides all the benefits of the HPE Integrity NonStop Software Suite, including software fault tolerance and fault isolation, dynamic workload balancing, linear scalability, application virtualization, and cluster programming transparency. HPE Integrity NonStop NS2400 servers can be configured with two or four physical processors in a pre-assembled and integrated rack-mount configuration. Multiple servers can be connected together using Ethernet (LAN) or WAN technologies.
Disk storage and communications are managed by the highly innovative Cluster I/O Modules (CLIMs). These powerful engines provide even greater performance for the HPE Integrity NonStop NS2400 platform as they decrease the load on the host processor, increase overall performance, and shorten response times.
Advanced manageability is integrated into HPE Integrity NonStop servers from the start, to help you manage your most demanding workloads. You can manage large applications with a single-system image. And, availability features are built-in and automatically configured, so there is no need for complex reconfiguring.
With HPE Integrity NonStop servers, you benefit from an architecture with value-added innovation, software fault tolerance, and industry-standard components.
