"Toshiba will enter the hot but crowded server appliance market in the first quarter of 2001... Toshiba's first server appliance, the Magnia SG10, will be a multipurpose model designed to handle a number of Internet tasks for small businesses, the company said. In addition, the company plans to offer services for the device such as remote management or installation."

"Although Toshiba demonstrated a server appliance from Western Digital's Connex division earlier this year, this model was designed completely by Toshiba, a spokeswoman said."

"The machine will use Red Hat's version of Linux, the spokeswoman added, but Toshiba declined to say which company's CPU is inside. Intel has an aggressive push to become a key piece of server appliances, a battle it's winning in the cost-conscious segments."
