Security and trust: The backbone of doing business over the internet

Big Blue has slashed prices on its server range in the UK and now claims it is undercutting Dell and Compaq on similar machines. The Netfinity range now starts at £896, which IBM claims is £110 cheaper than the equivalent Dell machine and £190 less than a similar Compaq box. At the same time, IBM said it was offering cash back prices on a number of its machines which will also help it to keep prices lower than its opposition. The machines affected are the Netfinity 1000, 3000, 3500M10 and 5000 models. Tony John, UK Netfinity brand manager, claimed that the IBM server range was growing 100 per cent year on year. ®
