The Birth of a New Era for the Enterprise

The Itanium architecture does far more than just extend the Intel architecture to 64 bits. The uniquely designed EPIC (Explicitly Parallel Instruction Computing) architecture allows the highest possible performance via new levels of parallelism for enterprise and technical applications. World-class floating point performance enhances analytic and scientific design and visualization applications. 64-bit addressing and massive resources combine to provide a platform to handle many terabytes of data with improved memory latency and fewer branch misses to further improve database performance. High availability and scalability and breadth of enterprise operating systems and applications ensure investment protection for years to come.

Itanium architecture today includes world-class capability for targeted applications, including:

Large databases
Business Intelligence/Data Mining
Security Transactions
High Performance Computing
Mechanical Computer-Aided Engineering Analysis
