Sendmail Switch Now Available for eServer

April 23, 2001

Internet messaging vendor Sendmail Monday announced support for IBM's new eServer p660 and p620 midrange Unix servers.

These new additions to the eServer series, introduced by IBM earlier in the day, are powered by IBM's Silicon-on-Insulator microprocessor technology and run its new AIX 5L operating system.

Sendmail's Internet messaging solutions aim to meet enterprises' critical requirements for security, manageability, and performance to accommodate increasing e-mail volume and traffic demands.

With this new offering, Sendmail hopes to assure service providers of its highly reliable and cost-effective solution that meets the demands of exploding subscriber growth and new messaging applications. Sendmail's Internet messaging solutions seek to raise the levels of quality and reliability to which subscribers and users are currently accustomed.

Sendmail's partnership with IBM eServer p660 and p620 servers will help achieve this, as it increases the range of manageable and scalable IBM platforms for Sendmail's leading Internet messaging solutions.

The combination of Sendmail Switch and the eServer systems will provide customers with a highly reliable and scalable e-business infrastructure. Dave Anderson, CEO of Sendmail noted, "In recent testing of Sendmail's Internet messaging solutions on the IBM eServer pSeries 660, we were excited to find that performance improved substantially as compared to its predecessor, the H80."

The arrangement will also benefit IBM. "Working in partnership with leading independent software vendors like Sendmail, IBM offers a comprehensive portfolio of software and hardware solutions to effectively manage a company's e-business infrastructure," Mike Kerr, vice president, IBM Web Server unit added.
