Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

As reported here earlier, Compaq will announce a further reorganisation in its executive ranks. We are currently on the phone waiting for the conference call to start. But in the meantime, since we wrote the story at 8.15 UK time, further salient facts have emerged, one of which is that Compaq will spend $100 million pushing the Alpha platform ahead. That story is reported on the US version of Computer Reseller News. If true, it indicates that there is still a dual microprocessor push at Compaq. What do we know already? Enrico Pesatori, a senior VP at Compaq, will head up the enterprise systems and solutions group. Bill Heil, as we suggested earlier, will be in charge of the business critical servers division. Don Harbert will head up the AlphaServers division, Pauline Nist the Tandem division, Tim Yeaton the Unix division and Rich Marcello will mind OpenVMS. Jesse Lipcon is in charge of Compaq's Alpha technology, including both processors and components, and reports directly to Pesatori. The Big Q will also announce a new NonStop e-business solutions division, headed up by B.J. Johnson. As soon as the conference call starts we will continue to update this story... ® RegisTroid 666 Pesatori was called Dracula by ex-DEC employees because he used to sweep around the halls of Maynard wearing a cloak.
