Solche Formulierungen würde ich gerne vermehrt in der deutschsprachigen IT-Presse lesen:
IBM’s new server targets the ‘i’ in SMBThe Register.
IBM has released what it claims is an all-singing, all-dancing box designed for the industry’s craze-du-jour, the SMB market.
The company’s angle is simplicity for the System i Express, the latest addition to the SMB System i server line.
With infomercial flair at a press and analyst event in San Francisco today, IBM’s System i general manager Mark Shearer pulled a sheet revealing a row of six Dell servers. On the opposite table was the Express system.
„Why would you want all this when all you need is this!”
It slices! It dices!
IBM hopes to woo multiple Windows-based server users with a single box that comes with a built-in OS, security tools, backup and recovery software, web-based management and a web server.
„It’s a datacenter in a box,” Shearer said. „Everything is pre-integrated.”
The company message was that the box is so easy to use that customers can survive massive layoffs in their IT department. (This was met with jovial laughs. Clearly admins were not invited to the party.)
Of course it wouldn’t be a proper modern IBM gathering without wistful recollections of the past.
„We hope the System i will bring IBM back to its server and database glory days,” VP of worldwide System i sales Bill Donohue said. „This is the way we’re going to go after new customers.”
