WSJ.com - H-P's NonStop Computer Line Will Use Intel's Itanium Chip

WSJ.com - H-P's NonStop Computer Line Will Use Intel's Itanium Chip: "Hewlett-Packard Co. has adapted the venerable NonStop computer line to use Intel Corp.'s Itanium chip, the final element in a costly and controversial bet on the jointly designed technology.
The NonStop line, invented by Tandem Computers Inc., was inherited by H-P through its 2002 acquisition of Compaq Computer Corp., which bought Tandem in 1997. The NonStop name refers to extra hardware and software features that keep computers operating when components fail, a big selling point for customers such as stock exchanges and automated-teller-machine networks."
