IBM TO LET LOOSE WITH SERVERS AIMED AT ISPS, ASPS

Going after what many analysts believe will be an extremely lucrative market over the next few years, IBM next week at NetWorld+Interop in Atlanta will unveil its first series in a of newly-designed servers built specifically for ISPs.

The Netfinity 4000R, code-named the Intimidator, is a single processor server that is only 1.75-inches high, allowing ISPs to stack as many as 42 units, or 84 processors, in a single rack. IBM has licensed some of the technology used in the new design from Network Engines, although IBM officials on Tuesday claim the design and packaging of that technology is theirs.

IBM'S DB2 UPDATE SHARPENS COMPETITION WITH RIVALS

The latest incarnation of IBM's DB2 Enterprise Edition 6.1, is a worthwhile upgrade for current customers and must be considered by companies seeking a stellar database solution. In particular, this version of DB2 is well-suited to sites with high-volume, complex electronic-commerce initiatives.

New support for managing external content -- known as DataLinks -- heats up the competition with rival Oracle and its Internet File System technology. During my tests with DataLinks, I found it quite capable of managing data and external content, such as images, while preserving security, performance, and accessibility.

MICROSOFT PLANS TO TAKE OFFICE APPLICATIONS ONLINE

Microsoft President Steve Ballmer on Thursday said the company plans to make office productivity applications available over the Web, but the demand for the service among corporate users appears limited, several observers said.

While Ballmer didn't provide any details, he announced the plans in a press conference call confirming the widely rumored appointment of former Silicon Graphics Chief Executive Officer Rick Belluzzo as vice president of Microsoft's consumer and commerce group.

COMPAQ'S DUMP OF NT ON ALPHA MAY HELP LINUX

Users and employees who were banking on the success of Windows NT in Compaq's Alpha processor appear to be the losers of Compaq's decision to halt development of Windows on Alpha, but the move could further open the enterprise door for Linux.

Because of Compaq's decision to end Alpha support for 32-bit Windows NT 4.0, as well as 64-bit Windows projects, Microsoft last week followed suit and dropped its Windows development efforts for the Alpha architecture.

CALDERA UPDATES OPENLINUX

Caldera Systems today released a speedier version of its Linux operating system. The new version allows corporate IT shops to carry out remote mass installations, and has all of its new features tested for the year-2000 changeover.

The OpenLinux 2.3 distribution, which is based on the 2.2.10 kernel, allows administrators to more efficiently and reliably distribute and configure versions of the operating system to desktop users. This improved capability is in direct response to demands from across the Linux community after the release of Version 2.2 of the product.

LINUX EXTENSION DOUBLES MEMORY ON INTEL SERVERS

Siemens and Linux distributor SuSE announced Wednesday a Linux extension that allows for the use of up to 4GB of RAM on servers powered by Intel processors.

The new extension is a major step up from the 2GB of RAM that previously was the maximum memory available on Intel servers running the Linux operating system, said Frank Schuhmann, a spokesman at SuSE.

NETWORK MANAGEMENT VENDORS TUNE UP PRODUCTS

Loran Technologies and System Management Arts (SMARTS) this month unveiled upgraded management products, with Loran focusing on managing networked resources and data links and SMARTS adding integrated application analysis.

Loran Kinnetics Management System, Version 3.0, adds advanced frame-relay management and dynamic reporting capabilities, as opposed to static reports. The Active Reports feature enables administrators to make reports on predictive, performance, fault, and service level management for frame relay, servers, and desktops, according to the company.
