APPLE-APOLLO LINK COMPLETE, NOW NEW DEAL IS SET BY INFORMATION PRESENTATION

By CBR Staff Writer

Following its joint marketing agreement with Apollo Computer, little-known Information Presentation Technologies Inc promises to have another similar deal lined up in time for announcement at Uniforum next month. Under the Apollo agreement, Information Presentation, in Calabasus, California, will provide hardware and software to enable networks of Macintoshes to connect with networked Apollo workstations. Apollo will sell the uShare software and hardware as well as provide an unspecified amount of financial backing to Information Presentation. The uShare product enables Appleshare to run under Unix and the company describes it as being a high-class Network File System having record locking facilities. uShare consists of a circuit board for Apollo Series 3000 or 4000 workstations and software for both the Mac and Apollo machines which enables the Apollo workstation to become a server for Apple and Apollo networks. The software uses Apple file protocols and the server products include gateway features to let users send electronic mail between Macs, IBM and other MS-DOS machines, and Apollo workstations across Token Ring, Ethernet and Appletalk networks. The uShare package for an Apollo server costs $2,995, the interface card for both Apple and Apollo machines costs $295 each and the software costs $195 for each machine.
