ComputerWorld: IBM Unveils Servers for Internet Providers

“IBM is taking aim at the Internet service provider market with
a pair of new thin servers to be available by month’s end.”

Netfinity 4000R, code-named Intimidator, will be a
1.5-in.-thick stackable unit. Priced from $3,000 to $4,000
depending on configuration, the 4000R includes a 500-MHz Pentium
III processor and will run Linux and Windows NT.

“IBM this month will also unveil the Netfinity RS6000 Model B50,
called Pizazz. It’s 3 inches thick and comparable with the 4000R in
performance, but it runs Linux and IBM’s AIX for RISC
platforms.”
