Legacy and Old HP Solutions

If your employees are still working on an outdated version of a particular operating system, or your IT team are struggling to maintain and secure older hardware, your first solution may not be to discard and renew – but simply to upgrade existing systems.

‘Legacy, cherished, old, embedded’ - these are all words we hear when customers refer to their old HP hardware. If you need to replicate an existing system that is no longer available new, replace or repair an existing system, or simply need to know that if your systems fail, there is someone who can help – that someone is Enline.

We’ve worked with old HP systems for over 25 years and still have customers who rely on old 1000 Series real time systems, or more recent PARisc HPUX workstations - such as the old 700 series. No matter what the system is, we’ve probably supplied it in the past or have the technical know-how to help you resolve the challenge of keeping your old HP systems in service.

At Enline, our 'cradle to grave' philosophy often means we see rejuvenating older systems as the perfect answer to otherwise costly and unnecessary upgrades. Much more than merely disposal and recycling, our team is focused on regenerating existing solutions where we can for the benefit of your business.

For example, if a manufacturer no longer supports your equipment, and you need to maintain, expand or replicate it, we can help. Our list of legacy customers includes blue chip companies, public sector bodies and smaller organisations, all of who rely upon our expertise and ability to provide the equipment they need.

We carry a comprehensive inventory, including products dating back to the very earliest used HP hardware. Although we cannot supply absolutely everything, we can source most products from a network of assured suppliers if we do not hold the product or part you need in stock.

Where an item is no longer manufactured, we can successfully source compatible products from third party suppliers who are dedicated to the legacy market. Where HP has ceased manufacture, there may be third party suppliers of compatible products who continue to dedicate development to the legacy HP market. Two of these companies we work closely with are:

Bering Technology Inc.

Bering Technology Inc. is based in California, USA. The company specialises in designing and manufacturing storage technology products for a myriad of organisations, including the US Defence Department. Since 1981, Bering has been making modern storage solutions for legacy HP computers, focusing on hard disk, removable disk and tape backup subsystems for HP 9000 and HP 1000 real-time computers.

Test and Measurement Systems Inc. (TAMS)

TAMS is committed to solving customer legacy problems with innovative solutions. Their products utilise technology licensed directly from Hewlett-Packard and Agilent Technologies, as well as those developed in house.

The company was started in 1992 as a service business and hardware manufacturer, and they acquired HP BASIC product responsibility in 1998. Their close relationship with HP and Agilent Technologies has allowed them to develop unique hardware and software solutions. In addition to their expertise in GPIB, HP-UX, SICL and BASIC, they are fully committed to supporting the Linux operating system.
