Novell Inc, still battling it out with the Timpanogas Research Group Inc over just who owns the rights to the next generation Wolf Mountain technology it first demonstrated at the Brainshare conference earlier this year (CI No 3,133; 3,168), has signed up IBM Corp and Hewlett-Packard Co as the latest Wolf Mountain partners. Novell announced the new partners at BrainShare ’97 in Australia, where it showed a Wolf Mountain cluster made up of 12 Intel-based servers from various manufacturers, some of them multiprocessors. The full roster of Wolf Mountain supporters now includes Compaq Computer Corp (and its new Tandem Computers Inc acquisition), Cheyenne Software Inc, Dolphin Interconnect Solutions Inc, Fujitsu Ltd, G2 Networks Inc, Intel Corp, Mitsubishi Ltd, Ing C Olivetti SpA, Oracle Corp, Siemens Nixdorf Informationssysteme AG, and Unisys Corp. However, the key members of the original Wolf Mountain team have gone to Timpanogos to work on a Windows NT version of the technology, in direct competition with Novell. The two companies are now engaged in a multi million dollar lawsuit that looks unlikely to be resolved anytime soon. According to InfoWorld, Timpanogas has offered Novell a $10m licensing agreement for rights to the technology.
