PC distributor Tech Data Corp, of Clearwater, Florida, is to distribute Cobalt Networks Inc’s Cobalt Qube and RaQ product families through its network of VARs and computer retailers. Cobalt’s products provide turnkey internet services including email, file sharing, threaded discussions, document management tools and web caching, and are aimed at small businesses, schools, developers, workgroups and internet service providers. The company is attempting to crack the low-end of a market populated at the high-end by firms such as Network Appliance Corp and Auspex Inc. Cobalt claims its products can be set up in less than 15 minutes and can be administered from a web browser. Tech Data began taking an interest in the web caching market last month, when it signed up to distribute a Novell/IBM/Digi solution for storing recently access internet files (CI No 3,469).
