    The only Itanic in my scope is in my hands bought on Ebay.

    My company won't buy one, cause the application is still not available
    on Itanic and if the Marvels are maxed out, we have to switch to SUN. Sigh

    We have one rx3600 since last year.
    The cost of upgrading some software licenses - VMS is one - is prohibitive
    so we won't get another one in a while (2 Alphas also in that cluster and
    Alphas can run / is licensed for whatever software is running on IA64 so
    we're covered for hw failures)

    I'm intending to persuade a few of my customers to move to Integrity in the
    next 12 months. Once is part-way through that process now (should be going
    live by the end of April), the others might get started before the end of
    this year. Of course we'll be buying from a local (Australian) reseller so
    maybe this information is of no help to you.

    The software costs vary enormously depending upon your application and the
    state of your software maintenance. If your Alpha system is under a current
    VMS support agreement you can trade in the operating system licence for an
    equivalent Integrity licence at no cost. Even if it's not current, the
    licence costs for the smaller Integrity servers are not that great.
    3rd-party software can be a different matter altogether: some vendors will
    swap to Integrity at no charge, others treat it as a whole new platform and
    make you pay full price.

    Why ? If there are happy with what they have and they systems have
    plenty of spare horsepower, why move ?

    Policies and prices vary from country to country. There was a time in
    Canada where those Itanium contraptions were more expensive than Alphas.
