Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

PSINet has jumped into bed with IBM to become the first ISP in Europe to offer hosted e-business solutions using its RS/6000 SP server. This marriage of convenience is designed to let companies gain a scaleable and powerful presence on the Web using Big Blur's supercomputer and its associated technology. Even the base line offering from IBM and PSINet is capable of handling one million "hits" a day. The catch? Well, earlier this afternoon it would have cost £2,500 a month for this entry-level offering. Half-an-hour later The Register was contacted to be told that the figure was, in fact, £5,000 a month. ®
