Santa Cruz Operation Inc and the Paris-based microkernel house Chorus Systemes SA have finally got around to tying the knot. They are broadening their technical and marketing agreement into a longer term relationship that will see Santa Cruz Operation ramping its real time operating system business with a 2.0 release of Chorus/Fusion for SCO. Chorus/Fusion for SCO will be merged with OpenServer Release 5 next year. Under the terms of the deal, the Californian will implement its OpenServer Release 5 on top of Chorus’s microkernel technology to provide real-time features supporting telecommunications and other embedded applications. The agreement builds on the current partnership between the two which goes back to Santa Cruz Operation’s Open Desktop release 3.0 (CI No 2,172). The company will take on future development, and support of the Chorus/Fusion for SCO is part of its plan to attract a wider application crowd to its Unix for iAPX-86, including telephone switching and computer telephony integration, electronic mail and voice mail independent software vendors.
