HP ends e3000 server sales

FRAMINGHAM (11/03/2003) - Hewlett-Packard Co. (HP) has stopped selling its e3000 midrange server, the company has confirmed. During the heyday of the minicomputer in the late 1970s and early '80s, the e3000 - which was previously called the HP3000 - competed with IBM Corp.'s AS/400 and Digital Equipment's VAX minicomputers. Introduced in 1972, the e3000's online transaction processing capabilities and ease of use helped it catch on in the travel and catalog sales industries, but like the other minicomputers, it was supplanted by Unix systems by the early 1990s. Customers will be able to buy processor upgrades, software upgrades and peripherals for the e3000 through October 2004, the spokesman said. Technical support will be available until the end of 2006, after which HP will continue to offer Web-based support, HP said.
