HPVM supports guests running on HP-UX 11i v3 hosts – guests can run Linux, Windows, Open VMS 8.4 or HP-UX.HP supports online VM guest migration, where encryption can secure the guest contents during migration.Package constraints generally represent a dependency or a versioning issue.For all package update operations, either a new BE is created or a backup BE is created before applying the software updates to the running BE.
If a package is constrained, an appropriate message indicating why it has been constrained is provided.
HP-UX 11i v3 scales as follows (on a Super Dome 2 with 32 Intel Itanium 9560 processors): The 11i v2 release introduced kernel-based intrusion detection, strong random number generation, stack buffer overflow protection, security partitioning, role-based access management, and various open-source security tools.
HP classifies the operating system's security features into three categories: data, system and identity: Release 6.x (together with 3.x) introduced the context dependent files (CDF) feature, a method of allowing a fileserver to serve different configurations and binaries (and even architectures) to different client machines in a heterogeneous environment.
Earlier versions of HP-UX supported the HP Integral PC and HP 9000 Series 200, 300, and 400 computer systems based on the Motorola 68000 series of processors, as well as the HP 9000 Series 500 computers based on HP's proprietary FOCUS processor architecture.
