IBM server cuts hit Oregon group

Among those who lost their jobs in IBM server group cuts this week were 250 employees at the company's Beaverton, Ore., facilities, spokeswoman Catherine King said Friday. Big Blue laid off employees whose jobs were deemed redundant as the company converges different server lines to use the same technology. Server designers' jobs were cut while the company shifted many tasks to its facilities in Raleigh, N.C.; Poughkeepsie, N.Y.; and Austin, Texas. Projects and work groups in Oregon that weren't affected by the cuts included IBM's Linux Technology Center, IBM Global Services for the Pacific Northwest region, the company's Storage Tank unit and storage-networking project, and its marketing effort for its xSeries Intel servers, King said.
