HP retires e3000 server series

HP has decided to roll its e3000 series into retirement after 30 years of service, and focus on the Unix market. Over the next five years the e3000 range will gradually be phased out with support services guaranteed until January 1st 2007.

HP is promising customers support and assistance in their transition from the servers including financial, migration, consulting and outsourcing services. HP is also working with e3000 application providers to enable their transition away from the e3000 base.

Though HP will continue to sell the 3000 series until the beginning of November 2003 and will provide upgrades and enhancements, the decision to phase out the line has largely been forced by dying demand for proprietary platforms.

“The e3000 was HP’s entry into the business computing arena nearly 30 years ago. HP has been fortunate to have had many loyal e3000 customers during this time,” said Duane Zitzner, president of HP computing systems. “HP has been helping customers to migrate between platforms for years and we are committed to making the change as easy as possible for our e3000 customers.”
