"Cobalt Networks and IBM are coming out with new server
appliances aimed at the e-business market space."
"Unlike general purpose servers, server appliances are used for
a specific function such as Web applications or firewalls."
"Cobalt Wednesday is expected to introduce the Qube 3, the third
generation of its Qube Internet server appliance line."
"Upon installation, the Qube 3 automatically detects network
settings and assigns itself an IP address, says Peder Ulander,
product marketing director. The included software also allows the
quick addition of new users, the updating of software and other
management features, he says.
