Akibia Offers Tech Support for HP Server Line

Published: February 9, 2006

If you have big Hewlett-Packard iron and you are tired of paying HP to service and support your servers, then Akibia, a Westborough, Massachusetts, tech support specialist, has launched an enhanced support offering for HP's PA-RISC and Itanium server lines that might interest you.

Akibia has been around for nearly two decades, and was founded by Thomas Willson in 1988 under the name of Polaris Service. Willson spent 10 years in management consulting prior to founding his company, which offers vendor-neutral hardware maintenance and software support for Solaris and HP-UX systems and, as of early 2005, on Dell and Hewlett-Packard X86 and X64 servers running either Red Hat or Novell Linux distributions. The company also offers migration services and training on platforms in addition to tech support.

As of last week, Akibia has expanded its HP support offerings to cover PA-RISC systems running HP-UX and Integrity machines running HP-UX, Windows, and Linux, mirroring the platform support that HP itself offers. The company had previously supported only PA-RISC machines, and now supports the Itanium-base rx Series and Superdomes.
