Big Blue to push Linux supported twin-600MHz box next week
Netfinity aimed at small business market
IBM said this morning it will release a low price small business server with dual 600MHz Intel chips and 1Gb of memory. But IBM could not tell us how much the 3500M10 will cost, because Intel is set to adjust its pricing this weekend. The box will be the first to come with IBM's 90 day server support for Linux, which it announced a week or two back. The server will come with complete certification on all Linux platforms, and is available in configurations for 500MHz, 550MHz and 600MHz parts too. It has a Wide Ultra SCSI disk controller, supports ServeRAID adaptors, and has built in 10/100 Ethernet, as well as a bevy of system management software. IBM will also introduce a £750 commercial desktop next week. The PC 300GL uses a 500MHz Celeron. ®
