[From News.com]

Sybase and Hewlett-Packard said Monday that they would jointly develop a version of Sybase's Adapter Server Enterprise database software for HP's Itanium 2 servers.

The company's Itanium 2-optimized database, which is slated for completion some time in 2003, will run on the HP-UX Unix operating system and Red Hat Linux. Intel's Itanium 2 chip is a 64-bit processor and is most suited for computer-intensive applications that store large amounts of data in a server's memory.
