The mid-range Libra 4200 Series boosts processor performance up to 43 percent over that delivered by predecessor Intel processor-based Libra models,* and improves I/O performance from 40 percent to 120 percent over that of comparable proprietary and Intel-based Libra systems, respectively.* The Libra 4200 Series offers users a smooth growth path from older Libra systems, because they can migrate applications without changing object code.The new ClearPath Dorado 4200 Series systems run the OS 2200 operating environment. Featuring a bundled specialty-engine module using s-Par technology, these systems provide up to 33 percent greater computing performance over comparable Intel processor-based predecessor models* and up to 233 percent over previous proprietary models.* High-availability (HA) and dual-partition options are available for the mid-range Dorado 4200 models. The HA option provides a dual processor-cell and I/O subsystem complex for failover protection. One or both cells can be defined for production or backup, switching roles as necessary if either unit fails. The dual-partition option enables both cells to be used for production, with workloads split between the two. Basic configurations of the new ClearPath systems are priced as follows:
- Libra 6200 Series: from $1.3 million.
- Libra 4200 Series: from $959,000.
- Dorado 4200 Series: from $325,000.
