In addition to the donation of these two machines, HP has also decided to loan us 10 Gigabit networking gear. The loaning of this gear will facilitate identifying bottlenecks in the network stack and help us optimize the code for other slower cards, too.
These top-of-the-line servers and high-end network gear will really help OpenBSD become an even better OS. Of course it's no surprise that support for HP gear will really improve. And such is the essence of donating hardware to OpenBSD, existing customers will be happier as support improves, and there will be new customers who buy HP gear due to the level of support that was made possible by these donations.
Many thanks to Hewlett Packard (Canada) and to Jeffrey, Allan D. of HP (Canada) for generously supporting us!
