HP, Intel & Oracle have joined forces for the Future of Enterprise Computing (FEC) Middle East road show introducing the companies new Intel Itanium 2-based servers and workstations.

During the FEC road show, Oracle will be discussing the importance and the benefits of understanding Return on Investment and the Future of IT Integration and consolidation of infrastructure for Enterprises, while HP will be focusing on the delivery of IT consolidation to the market and the joint unveiling with Intel of the new Itanium 2 server chips, code named 'Madison'.

Delivering up to 50% faster application performance than the previous Itanium 2-based systems, HP Integrity servers and HP Itanium 2-based workstations provide unparalleled performance, industry-leading scalability and expandability, and are supported by a broad range of technical independent software vendors (ISVs).

“HP is unique in its ability to deliver industry-standard 32-bit and 64-bit high-performance computing solutions with a choice of operating systems, scaling techniques, broad ISV application portfolios, engineering expertise and product support. HP is the best at combining open and industry-standard technologies with immense scalable-computing expertise to deliver leading performance to customers,” said Samer Karawi, marketing manager Business Critical Systems, HP UAE, Gulf and Levant.

At the seminar, IT market leaders will share their views on enterprise computing, looking at the growing cost pressures, increased speed of change and the management of environments that are more complex, disruptive and less predictable.

“With the current economical situation IT managers are being asked to do more with less and we at Oracle are utilising our technology infrastructure for the next era. Through the FEC road show we are looking to bring these developments directly to those concerned managers and advising them on how to initiate cost savings and to maximise their IT systems,” commented Tarek Shahawy, Technology Manager Oracle Middle East.

The FEC road show will be held at The Inter Continental in Muscat (Oman) on Sunday 6 July, The Sheraton in Doha (Qatar) on Monday 7 July, The Inter Continental in Manama (Bahrain) on Tuesday 8 July and finally closes at the Sheraton in Kuwait City (Kuwait) on Wednesday 9 July.
