Egenera Breaks Blade Software Free from Hardware
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Egenera has been a pioneer in the areas of blade server design and server virtualization and systems management since it was founded seven years ago. Up until now, if you wanted to use Egenera's PAN Manager virtualization management tools, you had to buy Egenera's BladeFrame platform. But soon, that will change. Egenera announced yesterday that it will be making its future PAN Manager Release 6 software available to OEMs so they can license it and sell it for their own server, storage, and peripherals.

Citrix Closes XenSource Deal, Does Deal with Dell and Xen Desktops
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

Citrix Systems completed its $500 million acquisition of server virtualization software maker XenSource just in time for Xen to be the star of its iForum user group and partner meeting in Las Vegas, which drew a crowd of around 4,000 last week. Having completed the XenSource deal, which makes Xen a credible alternative to the products from VMware because of the more than $1.1 billion business that is behind it now, Citrix is keen on talking up its end-to-end virtualization strategy.

Sun Puts Intel Quad-Core Chips into Ultra Workstations
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

The company may have changed its stock ticker symbol from SUNW to JAVA, and it may generate the bulk of its revenues from servers, but Sun Microsystems got its start as a workstation vendor and the company still wants to engineer powerful desktop machines that appeal to its installed base of Sparc/Solaris customers. And sometimes that means peddling the fastest X64 boxes that can be put in the field. Such is the case with the Ultra 24 workstation Sun announced last week. READ MORE >


Midrange Shops Get Disaster Recovery Services from IBM
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

IBM's Global Services group has been trying to find a way to get a larger slice of the budget at small and medium businesses in its own customer base for many years. And with a new offering with the unwieldy name of Disaster Recovery Services for Data Center Recovery--Recovery Express, IBM thinks it has just the right thing to not only help it keep its services business growing, but to help customers who cannot afford a full-blown high availability cluster to use IBM's own machines in its own data centers as hot backups.
