Network Computer supplier HDS Network Systems Inc, King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, is to change its name to NeoWare Inc in the next six weeks. The name change, which is the firm’s third, is hoped to quash confusion it experiences with Hitachi Data Systems (aka HDS). The company sold off the HDS portion of its name to Hitachi earlier this year (CI No 3,109). All existing product line labels will remain unchanged, although the company will next month launch a reshaped version of its @workStation network computer, called the NeoStation. It is smaller than the existing one a sits on its side, perpendicular to the desktop, much like the IBM Corp machine, which is manufactured by Network computing Devices Inc. The NeoStation has all the same stuff inside, says HDS’ director of marketing Lou Anzalone, and is built around the Intel Corp i960 RISC processor. NeoWare originally started life as Human Design Systems, manufacturing X Terminals, then moved to HDS Network Systems two years ago with the introduction in 1996 of @Workstation.
