Security for virtualized datacentres

Korean company Trigem and worldwide distributor CHS said that they have formed a JV to supply cheap PCs in Europe. The joint venture is called The PC Way, or should it be The PC Giveaway? The scheme is aimed at Euro-dealers wanting entry-level machines on a pan-European basis. The companies said they would be able to offer 400MHz boxes for around $550. The boxes will be built in an assembly plant within CHS' gigantic distribution facility in Helmond, Holland, and will appear in July, with production capacity of up to 1.2 million units a year. PC Way will seek OEM contracts with name-brand vendors. The first shipments leave the factory in July, kicking off with CHS' very-own Yakumo private-label kit. The Trigem deal will come as welcome news for CHS, which has been a bit short on welcome news lately. Especially where finances are concerned. With Trigem it gets some to share costs for PC assembly in Europe. It provides the space and SAP-supported logistics, while Trigem fits out the assembly line and takes care of production. Trigem produces low cost PCs in the US, called Emachines. ® PC Way will have an annual production capability of 1.2 million units --
