Security for virtualized datacentres

Ideal Hardware has been taken on as UK distributor for Cobalt Networks, in a move aimed at boosting Ideal's links with smaller resellers. Ideal’s agreement with the network developer will mean resellers selling into the small to medium enterprise (SME) market can offer their customers Web servers which need little technical know-how to run. The Surrey-based distributor claims the Cobalt kit is so easy to use that the biggest technophobe can set up the servers in only 15 minutes. But despite this empahasis on ease-of-use, Cobalt says its machines are technically robust. The Cobalt Qube Microserver can deliver 140,000 e-mail messages, 50,000 file transfers and 250,000 Web page requests per day. In a separate move, Ideal has poached Claudette Morgan from Datrontech for its high-end SCSI department. After five years at Basingstoke-based distributor Datrontech, Morgan’s responsibilities as business development manager will involve working with resellers to help them put together SCSI-based packages. ®
