"There is growing demand for Web server appliances, particularly among dotcom companies that need to quickly beef up their sites, said Aberdeen Group analyst Joe Clabby. "Companies prefer turnkey devices because they don't want to do all the configuration themselves," he said...."
"Dell's PowerApp appliances are designed specifically for infrastructure tasks, such as Web serving, caching and load balancing. The company is offering two versions of its Web server appliance: the PowerApp.web 100, a 1U (1.75-inch) high unit. One is Windows 2000-based, the other runs Linux. The Windows 2000 version runs optimized Web server software developed by Dell and Microsoft called Windows Powered Web-hosting software, which includes Internet Information Server 5.0, Microsoft Load-Balancing Service and Microsoft Terminal Services. The Linux version, available next month, is bundled with Red Hat Linux and the Apache Web server. Pricing starts at $1,899."
