OPENVISION TO SUPPORT DEC’s OBJECTBROKER CORBA TECHNOLOGY AS MICROSOFT AGREES OBJECTBROKER LINK

By CBR Staff Writer

Distributed systems management contender OpenVision Inc is to support Digital Equipment Corp’s ObjectBroker, making it a key component of its product line in providing a common set of distribution services. The announcement from the Pleasantville, California company coincides with the one from Microsoft Corp and DEC linking Microsoft’s OLE 2 Object Linking & Embedding to DEC’s ObjectBroker, something IBM Corp may also attempt to do with its System Object Model, pushing DEC into something of a power broker position. OpenVision’s announcement will mean that the OpenV*Environment 2.5, the foundation of its modular object-based services suite OpenV*OPSS, is based on the ObjectBroker technology. As a result, the stuff should be interoperable with multiple systems and network management devices, such as NetView and Hermes. OpenVision expects to use ObjectBroker for enterprise-wide information access, software installation and distribution, event and policy management, access to an enterprise-wide object-oriented database for application storage and retrieval and configuration management. It plans to provide a set of external adaptors for SNMP-based products, such as Hewlett-Packard OpenView and SunNet Manager as well as IBM’s NetView. ObjectBroker conforms to the latest Corba 1.2 specification from the Object Management Group, OpenVision notes.
