Overview

The HP 9000 A-Class A180 and A180C were among the last 32-bit PA-RISC HP 9000 800 servers, in a small and rack-mountable case. Designated Enterprise Internet Servers they were geared towards deployment in rack-space in datacenters and thus do not have video output, only serial console and a web console. System design was pretty pared down and streamlined, with a simplified 32-bit PA-RISC design not dissimilar to the HP Visualize B180L workstation, minus the graphics and a few of the I/O devices.

Internals

CPU

The additional 1 MB L2 cache is the only difference between both systems.
