NOVELL, EXCELAN, ORACLE UNITE ON LOCAL AREA NETWORK DISTRIBUTED DATABASES

By CBR Staff Writer

Novell Inc’s marketing and development alliances with Excelan Inc and Oracle Corp have borne fruit with the announcement of database software, networking software, and communications software that provide distributed database functionality for the local area network market. The products provide seamless distributed data processing over a network, the companies claim. Data is accessible from Excelan’s Lan Workplace running the Oracle database across a variety of heterogeneous platforms, including the Xenix-based Oracle Server and other TCP/IP-based Oracle database systems. Oracle uses the standard socket library application programming interface implemented on Excelan’s Lan Workplace and Lan Service for DEC VAX/VMS servers to distribute Oracle’s client-server architecture across MS-DOS, Xenix, VMS and Unix systems. In addition, Oracle applications concurrently access data and services on NetWare servers with Novell’s IPX protocols through Excelan’s Lan Workplace driver for Advanced NetWare.
