Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

The triumvirate ruling Compaq Corporation made further decisions affecting Europe over the weekend, in the wake of the retirement of former general manager Andreas Barth. Barth was closely associated with ex-CEO Eckhard Pfeiffer and the triumvirate, headed by chairman Ben Rosen, has effectively mirrored the US reconstruction into three groups, previously reported here. Euro-executives, including Compaq UK and Ireland MD Joe McNally, will now report to VP Werner Koepf, while another VP, Gerard van de Aast will head up Compaq's European enterprise solutions and services group. Kasper Rorsted will be VP in charge of Europe's PC and e-commerce group. As revealed here Saturday, Compaq is continuing to push hard on the former Digital Unix and Alpha front and is concentrating on its NONSTOPCOMPUTING theme. As part of its Alpha roadmap, insiders tell us that sometime mid-next year, Compaq will introduce a 1.4GHz microprocessor, running on the EV68 bus and using copper technology. Compaq will sell more of its products over the Web and will rebate its former resellers with agents fees for passing on leads. ®
