Compaq has bought an unspecified stake in Silicon Valley start-up Ramp, which specialises in Web connection software.
The company creates a product called Web Ramp, a way for small to medium sized enterprises to connect to the Web simply. Compaq is expected to sell the product with its range of servers, as part of its campaign to target the SME sector.
Compaq's investment is in addition to $9 million in private funding that Ramp has raised to build up its profile.
*Compaq also confirmed that it has introduced a new workstation family, as predicted here last week. It is also to introduce new notebooks this month, although machines based on Intel's new Tillamook processor are still on its back burner. And it will introduce a high spec monitor to its channel later this month.
