Ive never understood the reluctance of top-tier PC builders to incorporate AMD chips in their enterprise-oriented machines. When Hewlett-Packard announced last week that its putting AMD Athlon processors in its Compaq D315 Business PC series, my immediate reaction was “Its about time.”
I cant find a solid number for the market cap that Intel has gained from its Intel Inside campaign, now just a month past its 11th birthday, Continue reading
IBM on Tuesday will unveil AIX 5L Version 5.2, an upgrade to its Unix server operating system that will enable new and existing IBM eServer pSeries systems to divide into smaller “virtual” servers running either Unix or Linux.
The new software will allow administrators to create virtual servers on dynamic partitions that are as small as a single processor and have 250MB of memory. “The smaller the partition, the more efficient the resource allocation, and potentially, the lower the total cost Continue reading

The Poway, Calif., company earlier this month unveiled two small-form- factor PCs designed to occupy less space than traditional microtowers but keep the computing power and manageability enterprises need.
The Gateway E-2000 and E-4000 PCs are 35 percent smaller than microtower equivalents but offer four bays, rather than three, and contain industry-standard computing components. Competitive products tend to incorporate the more expensive and smaller components traditionally us Continue reading

IBM, having upgraded its midrange eServer p650 system with the latest versions of the Power4+ microprocessor, is now turning its attention to other servers within its Unix line.
The Armonk, N.Y., tech giant on Tuesday will announce that it is putting more processing power into its 16-way p670 and 32-way p690 systems.
The p690 will be sold with either the 1.5GHz or 1.7GHz Power4+, IBMs 64-bit dual-core processor, said Jim McGaughan, director of IBMs eServer strategy. It also will come wi Continue reading
