Subject News: More IBM announcements
Date Mon, 22 Jun 1998 15:21:45 GMT

I have included an article that appeared in this morning's edition of
Internet Week's daily e-mail newsletter.

I find it interesting that "the unprecedented deal between IBM and the
Apache Project, negotiated over the past 45 days" was not even mentioned
on this list. :-)

So, what kind of "deal" was negotiated???  (This is a serious & a fun
question at the same time.  If there really was a deal, I'd be interested
in knowing what the general detail are.)

Overall, it is GREAT news for Apache!

* Apache Is About to Turn the Web Blue


Apache Is About to Turn the Web Blue 

The Apache HTTP server, by far the Internet's most widely deployed Web 
server, will shortly become available from an unlikely source: IBM.

IBM and the Apache Project, the consortium of software developers 
responsible for the Apache HTTP server, will announce today that IBM 
will make Apache an option across its AIX and Windows NT servers, as 
well as its AS/400 midrange and System 390 mainframe lines.

Today, IBM offers the various versions of Lotus Domino Go Web server, 
the HTTP server inside IBM's new WebSphere Application Server, on 
these platforms and will continue to do so.

The unprecedented deal between IBM and the Apache Project, negotiated 
over the past 45 days, is described by senior IBM officials as a way to 
bring IBM's "e-business" concepts and service to new customer segments, 
particularly those small- and medium-sized firms IBM has targeted of late. 
It is that sector, and ISPs, that account for the huge installed base of 
Apache Web servers. By Ellis Booker
