As IBM Corp has already done with its RS/6000 product line, Hewlett-Packard Co is adding a high-availability option to its Internet systems, integrating its MC/ServiceGuard high- availability clustering software with its Domain Enterprise Server Internet server packages. A new Network Connection Policy Manager enables client Internet connections to be balanced across clusters, and has a starting price of $1,000. Hewlett-Packard will also offer the ability to separate nodes in HP-UX Enterprise Parallel Server clusters by distances of up to two kilometers, using a new ‘Campus’ Fiber Channel connection which will be extended to 10km by the first half of 1998. The new MC/ServiceGuard software to support Campus will cost $6,000 from mid-year. A new version of the company’s ClusterView software for management clustered configurations will support drag and drop and is to be integrated with the GlancePlus and PerfViev performance monitoring tools. ClusterView costs from $1,500 from mid-year. Hewlett-Packard is also going to enable ServiceGuard and LockManager HP-UX clusters to be managed from Windows NT management consoles. Domain Enterprise Servers have prices that start from $8,000.
