    The HP 9000 is a line of UNIX-based business servers from Hewlett-Packard (HP) with server models that span enterprise applications from the "entry-level" (branch or department-level computers, Web hosting servers, and so forth) through the midrange with needs for handling advanced enterprise resource planning (ERP) and analytical customer resource management (CRM) up to its high-end servers for very computing-intensive applications.

  • HP-UX

    HP-UX is the UNIX-based operating system for the HP 9000 series of business servers from Hewlett-Packard.

  • HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning)

    HVAC stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.

  • hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) clean agent

    Data centers and telecom rooms use hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) clean agent systems for fire protection to avoid damaging electrical and electronic equipment.

  • I

    IBM Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL)

    The Integrated Facility for Linux (IFL) is a specialty engine processor on IBM System z mainframe servers that is dedicated to Linux workloads. Operational efforts, software costs, energy use and hardware footprint are reduced when Linux is deployed on IFL rather than general-purpose processors.

  • IBM Roadrunner

    Roadrunner is the fastest supercomputer in the world, twice as fast as Blue Gene and six times as fast as any of the other current supercomputers. IBM developed Roadrunner for the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico. (Continued...)

  • IBM System z Application Assist Processor (zAAP)

    The IBM System z Application Assist Processor (zAAP) is a specialty engine that provides a performance environment for Web-based apps and service-oriented architecture-based technologies, e.g. XML and Java.

  • IBM System z Integrated Information Processor (zIIP)

    IBM's System z Integrated Information Processor (zIIP) is a specialty offload engine that helps improve computing performance for a subset of mainframe workloads.

  • IMS (Information Management System)

    IMS (Information Management System) is a database and transaction management system that was first introduced by IBM in 1968. Since then, IMS has gone through many changes in adapting to new programming tools and environments.

  • indemnification

    In service level agreements (SLAs) and other legal contracts such as end-user license agreements (EULAs), indemnification is the part of an agreement that provides for one party to bear the monetary costs, either directly or by reimbursement, for losses incurred by a second party.

  • Information Technology (IT)

  • infrastructure (IT infrastructure)

    Infrastructure is the foundation or framework that supports a system or organization.

  • intelligent power management (IPM)

    Intelligent Power Management (IPM) is a combination of hardware and software that optimizes the distribution and use of electrical power in computer systems and data centers. While the installation of IPM involves up-front cost and ongoing maintenance, the technology can save money in the long term as a result of reduced electric bills, reduced downtime and prolonged hardware life...

  • ISAM (Indexed Sequential Access Method)

    ISAM (Indexed Sequential Access Method) is a file management system developed at IBM that allows records to be accessed either sequentially (in the order they were entered) or randomly (with an index).

  • ISO

    ISO, founded in 1947, is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies from some 100 countries, with one standards body representing each member country.
