"IBM today announced IBM eServer, a new generation of servers featuring mainframe-class reliability and scalability, broad support of open standards for the development of new applications, and capacity on demand for managing the unprecedented demands of e-business."

"The IBM eServer is a product of Project Mach 1, a major cross-company initiative begun three years ago to harness the company's best technologies and practices to support the infrastructure for the next phase of e-business. From the consolidation of IBM server manufacturing and development, to the realignment of its sales force, to breakthroughs such as copper chips, Silicon-on-Insulator and Memory eXtension Technology, to partnerships with leading software vendors, to IBM's corporate-wide embrace of Linux -- every corner of IBM moved closer to today's launch of the IBM eServer."

"With open standards the driving force behind e-business, customers can't afford to be locked in to servers that offer limited choices in applications. The IBM eServer line offers the flexibility to deploy e-business applications across varied platforms. ... Each IBM eServer fully embraces open industry standards such as Java, XML, HTTP, HTML and Linux."

"IBM eServer is the broadest family of servers fully enabled for Linux to help customers ride the tsunami of coming Linux applications. Ten new worldwide Linux porting centers allow customers to prototype real-world IT environments and pre-test their Linux applications."
