Dell is to refresh its server and service offerings to business customers.

The direct selling giant also announced a new version of its OpenManage Software.

Dell will expand its range of products for Web servers, application servers and database servers over the next quarter. The Web server tier will get a couple of rack-mounted two-way Intel-based servers - the PowerApp 110 for the cheaper end of the market, available in January, and the PowerApp 120 for the higher end, due in February.

Dell will also proffer a PowerEdge 1550 for its application server tier in January. It will have a 1GHz Intel processor and cost $2599. In February the vendor will start offering a lower end PowerEdge 350 at $1499.

Regarding the database tier, Dell has decided to repackage a 32-processor Unisys ES-7000 server, which will be re-branded as a Dell 32-way PowerEdge server early next year.

The Texas company also introduced version 6.0 of its OpenManage system management software, which will replace HP's OpenView software in Dell's future server offerings.

Dell said it wanted to give rival Compaq a run for its money in the services department. It will start pressing ahead with a fresh batch of services to big business customers from January. These will include consultation services for infrastructure design and assessment. ®
