Improved performance on the latest HP Integrity servers delivers total cost of ownership savings of 48 percent

Denver – April 3, 2013 – Secure64 Software Corporation announced that its DNS Cache product has increased its performance and resistance to denial-of-service attacks 100 percent on the new HP Integrity rx2800 i4 and BL860c i4 servers running on the Intel® Itanium® 9500 processor series. (1) By leveraging faster clock speeds, improved bus architecture and increased onboard L3 cache, Secure64 is able to offer up to double the performance while keeping its software cost the same, resulting in a savings of 48 percent in total cost of ownership.

The HP Integrity rx2800 i4 and BL860c i4 platforms are reliable and secure entry-class rack-mount and blade servers supporting a range of mission-critical workloads. Based on HP enhancements and the Intel® Itanium® processor 9500 series, transactions are processed up to three times faster than previous generations, while using 21 percent less energy. (3)
“DNS performance and attack resistance have always been important, but is especially critical for mobile operators who are experiencing explosive growth in IP traffic,” said Joe Gersch, COO of Secure64. “Unlike appliance vendors, Secure64 is able to offer up to double the performance on the latest HP Integrity servers compared with previous generation servers at the same software cost. This gives customers a very cost-effective upgrade path and maintains our commitment to offer the best total cost of ownership of any carrier-grade DNS solution on the market”.
“Like many of our mission-critical clients, Secure64 was facing ever-increasing demands for uptime, performance and security in order to grow their business,” said Lorraine Bartlett, vice president of marketing, Business Critical Systems, HP. “HP’s expanded Integrity portfolio offers Secure64 the scalability, continuous availability and efficiency needed to achieve their mission-critical business goals and improve productivity.”
“Secure64 is a long-time partner of HP, and is committed to leveraging the unique security and performance characteristics of the HP Integrity server platforms and Intel Itanium microprocessor,” said Bill Worley, CTO of Secure64. “Our carrier-grade DNS solutions continue to offer unique solutions to the security challenges posed by today’s cybercriminals.”
Secure64 continues to offer full support for its software products on the previous generation HP Integrity servers, even those that have reached end-of-life status.

Notes
1 Based on Secure64 lab tests that compared performance and DDoS attack resistance of Secure64 DNS Cache and Secure64 DNS Authority running on an HP Integrity rx2800 i4 with Intel Itanium 9500 processor series versus the same application software running on HP Integrity rx2800 i2 with Intel Itanium 9300 processor series.
2 Based on three year costs of hardware, software and software maintenance for the Secure64 DNS Cache product running on an HP Integrity rx2800 i4 Server versus an HP Integrity rx2800 i2 Server.
3 Based on HP internal lab testing that compared HP Integrity rx2800 i2 Severs, with Intel Itanium 9300 processor series and 24 8GB DIMM memory cards versus HP Integrity rx2800 i4 Servers, with Intel Itanium 9500 processor series and 24 8GB DIMM memory cards. The difference was 162 watts or 21.4 percent less energy consumption for the Intel Itanium 9500 processor series -based system. ENERGY STAR qualification based on published qualification data for the HP Integrity rx2800 i4 Server, in the category for Enterprise Server. Testing done June 2012.
