"Hewlett-Packard plans to ship Windows NT and Linux versions of its ASP-in-a-box solution in November."

"The hardware and software package, dubbed e-Utilica, is already available for HP-UX, the vendor's version of Unix. HP is targeting service providers that want to host applications or rent out computing capacity via the Internet. The software works by temporarily opening the customer firewall so the customer's network can access the systems in the service provider's facility, says Matt Oberdorfer, e-Utilica product marketing manager at HP."

"Starting at $500,000, e-Utilica has two components: an administration rack and a two-meter server rack that holds between four and 20 systems. Each administration rack can manage up to four server racks."
