Top 10 endpoint backup mistakes

Historically, AMD is weak in the Italian corporate and public sector, so it may be forgiven for issuing a press release about not one but two wins with0 the Italian government.

Italy's Ministry of Justice and Consip, a department of the Ministry of Treasury, are to buy an unspecified number of Athlon-powered Olivetti desktop MK800s.

And we thought Olivetti PCs had gone bust. However the name lives on through brand licencee ICS, an Italian PC maker.

The deal with the two Italian government agencies will "re-launch the Olivetti historic - into the public-administration segment."

Once upon a time, Olivetti was a major PC player all over Europe - it was very strong in the UK public sector, for instance. But this time around, we do not see the name travelling beyond its Italian heartland. ®
