Chinese Reseller Partners With Unisys on ES7000
- By Scott Bekker
Unisys Corp. announced that it has signed an agreement with Dynamic Technology International Ltd., a reseller of IT products and services in China, through which the two companies will market Unisys' e-@ction Enterprise Server ES7000 systems and other Unisys servers.
As part of the agreement, Dynamic Technology (www.dynamic-technology.com) has ordered Unisys (www.unisys.com) server technology valued at $3.5 million. The servers include one 12-processor ES7000 and over 3000 Unisys-distributed, Intel-based two, four, and eight-processor systems and will be resold by Dynamic Technology to end users and other resellers.
"Businesses in China are poised to become global economic power players, with growth fueled in large part by the emergence of large-scale e-business over the Internet," said Jerry Yeung, president of Dynamic Technology. "The Unisys ES7000 can enable these emerging enterprises to accelerate their plans for global expansion by substantially lowering the cost of large-scale, enterprise-class computing."
Unisys is a participant in the Computer Systems Policy Project (CSPP, www.cspp.org), a coalition of CEOs of the largest U.S. computer companies formed to develop and advocate the IT industry's public policy positions on technology and trade issues. The CSPP advocates Congressional support for normalized trade relations with China. Unisys Chairman and CEO Lawrence A. Weinbach is a co-chair of the Technology Controls Committee of the CSPP.
"This alliance reflects our very active participation in the Computer Systems Policy Project and the initiative to achieve open trade with the Peoples Republic of China," said Weinbach. - Isaac Slepner
