High performance access to file storage

Unlike its big brother, Intel, Advanced Micro Devices is not in the habit of registering dozens of new domain names while you speak. So the existence of this one is an event. The site is called ALEREON.COM and we've no idea what this means because they haven't got it up and running yet. The domain, according to our information, was registered towards the end of last week, by Mark Threefoot at AMD. (Check Internic for the bare details.) Alereon is, however, an anagram of REAL ONE if that helps. Any clues, readers? William Henning, at CPU Review has come up with ten possible ideas -- the last two could be goers. Maybe information security at AMD will let us know today, unless it's one of those big secrets like K-III rather than K-3... Our thanks to The Anagram Server for turning up other hopefuls like Eleanor and the Cockney way for saying hello to a Roman emperor: "Ale Nero". ®
