OPENVISION NEGOTIATES WITH IBM FOR RIGHTS TO NATIONAL STORAGE UNITREE

By CBR Staff Writer

OpenVision Inc says it is negotiating with IBM Corp’s Federal Systems Co to acquire marketing rights to National Storage Laboratory UniTree. UniTree is an hierarchical storage management system that was previously owned by Discos, a division of General Atomics Corp – OpenVision, Pleasanton, California, acquired the firm and its products in February 1993 – but it was developed by IBM Federal Systems – which is now on the black – and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory at the National Storage Laboratory. To date, NSL Unitree has been marketed exclusively by IBM Federal. If the deal comes off, and OpenVision is confident it will, the company plans to integrate its own version of UniTree with the National Storage Laboratory one. It reckons it could get NSL UniTree version 2.0 out by mid-1994, and will sell it through existing OEM channels, including Convex Computer Corp, Titan Inc and Control Data Systems Inc.
