"Looking to provide customers with servers tuned to specific functions in key Internet areas, IBM is gearing up its mainstay servers specifically for Web hosting."

"IBM later this month plans to deliver a new member in its Netfinity line of low-cost Intel-based servers, running Linux, targeted at Internet service providers and application service providers (ASPs). And last week the company delivered its first application-specific AS/400 servers, specially tailored to run Lotus Domino-only applications. "

"This server will suit the needs of ISPs and ASPs clamoring for low-cost servers so they can offer inexpensive services to small and midsize businesses -- as well as to departments within enterprises -- as they enter the Internet-commerce field, IBM officials said."
