No sooner had Novell announced its NetWare VMS than Oracle Corp, Belmont, California, leaped up to announce that it would be supporting the product with its own. Oracle’s SQL database software and Novell’s NetWare VMS together offer an unparalleled combination of crucial services for networked MS-DOS users, declared Peter Tierney, vice president of marketing. We’re pleased that the development alliance that Oracle and Novell announced last November continues to produce new and better product solutions for our customers. Oracle says it will support NetWare VMS both on the micro and on the VAX. Users of Professional Oracle on networked micros will be able to store their database and application files on shared directories on the VAX under control of NetWare, it says. With a subsequent release of NetWare VMS, Oracle’s SQL*Net networking software will also support NetWare’s interprocess communication facility directly, so that users can run an Oracle database application on a networked micro and simultaneously access NetWare services anywhere on the network while also accessing multiple Oracle databases anywhere on the network. And both Oracle and NetWare running on the same VAX mini will use the same Novell interprocess communication for communicating with workstation applications through a single network connection.
