Micron drops NetFrame line

Micron drops NetFrame line

Rather than continue its own server line, Micron Electronics Inc. will co-brand three servers with Hewlett-Packard Co.

It is 'a fairly dramatic shift' in the Micron server lineup, said Rob Meissner, the Nampa, Idaho, company's director of product marketing.

HP will do the NetServer integration while Micron acts as a single point of accountability, handles its own server deliveries and customizes software downloads.

The first three co-branded NetServers are the LH 6000 enterprise server, a two-way LC 2000 workgroup server and the high-density LPR rackmountable unit.

Micron also will cut the price of its newest desktop PC, the Millennia Max XP, by using 850-MHz and faster Athlon processors from Advanced Micro Devices Inc. of Sunnyvale, Calif., instead of Intel Corp. processors. A 1.2-GHz Millennia Max XP with 128M of SDRAM, a 20G hard drive, CD-RW and floppy drives, speakers and a 17-inch monitor will cost about $2,100.
