HP e3000

The HP e3000 is a line of midrange business servers that carries on the well-known series of 3000 computers from Hewlett-Packard (HP). The e3000 uses HP's MPE/iX operating system, which can run applications written for the first 3000 systems that date as far back as the early 1970s and also run POSIX-conforming (UNIX-based) applications as well.

The HP e3000 servers are offered in a compact, entry-level ("a-class") model and several larger ("n-class") models. The "a-class" model is also suggested as a replacement for HP's older 3000 models, which will no longer be supported after April 30, 2002.

MPE/iX provides "Web connectivity" (support for TCP/IP) as well as the ability to develop and run applications written in Java.
