Unify Corp has signed worldwide agreements with UK manufacturers ICL and Apricot Computers for the Unify relational database and Accell applications generator. ICL, which has been working with Relational Technology to implement the Ingres database across its range, including mainframes under the VME operating system, will now also offer the Unify products, which have been implemented on the DRS 300 PWS workstations, which run Unix and MS-DOS, and the full Clan Unix range. Said to be worth $75,000, the deal was struck mainly due to pressure from markets served by ICL’s overseas subsidiaries, particularly Australia and Holland, according to Jeffrey Anwell from Unify Corp. Anwell said that the company had no plans for a VME implementation. Apricot Computers, in Edgbaston, Birmingham has signed for Unify to be its strategic database product for its Xen and VX systems including the ones from Sequent Computer – running Unix and MS DOS, and will sell the products on through its dealer network, as well as using it in-house for software development. The cash value was not disclosed.
