"In an aggressive move to take a leadership role in the emerging market of Internet appliances and Web servers, NETmachines, Inc. today announced a strategic alliance with Cybernet Systems Corporation, a leading developer of Linux-based thin server applications. Cybernet has taken an investment position in NETmachines and will provide an OEM version of NetMAX to further develop "best-of-breed," customized Linux-based Internet appliance solutions, based on the widely popular Red Hat(TM) Linux operating system. As part of this new alliance, Cybernet President and CEO Charles Jacobus, Ph.D., will take a seat on the board of directors for NETmachines."

"With this infusion from the industry's best commercially focused Linux appliance software, NETmachines gains a significant resource to further develop robust, yet easy to use Linux-based thin-server solutions," said Peter Tsepeleff, president of NETmachines, Inc. "ISPs, ASPs and businesses will now have a complete solution - hardware and software -- that best answers all of their e-business needs. E-commerce solutions are too important to be shared with other sites on a hosting server. A dedicated, space saving, flexible appliance from NETmachines is a perfect cost-effective solution."

"As evidenced by the growing demand to connect to the Internet, conduct e-commerce and leverage Internet services, such as e-mail, businesses have created a paradigm shift in the need for inexpensive Internet-enabling solutions. Reliability, ease of use, and simplified web page-based manageability are the factors that are enabling Linux-based solutions to fill this void."
