Santa Cruz Operation Inc has a string of new and upgraded products headlined by its packaged version of Microsoft Corp LAN Manager for Unix. To the standard LAN Manager, Santa Cruz has added Unix System client support, IBM-compatible NetBEUI transport support, virtual terminal facilities for Unix System log-ins, co-residency for multiple transport protocols, and multiprocessor support for systems with the Santa Cruz MPX multiprocessor performance extension to its Unix System V and Open Desktop. It can be used over backbone networks already using Santa Cruz’s TCP/IP or OSI transports. The product integrates servers running its Unix V implementations with any combination of MS-DOS, Windows, OS/2, Xenix, SCO Unix V, and Open Desktop clients. A five-user starter pack for five users is $1,300; adding 10 more users is $1,500 and an unlimited-user upgrade is $5,000. The company now has release 2.0 of its Open Systems Interconnection software in four bundles – SCO OSI for Unix, including FTAM, Virtual Terminal, X400 User Agent, LAN Transport, NetBIOS Support, TCP/IP Interface and Drivers for local net boards; SCO X400 for Unix, an add-on with X400 Mail Transfer Agent, X400 Reliable Transfer Service and Gateway to Unixmail; SCO OSI for MS-DOS – FTAM, X400 User Agent, LAN Transport and LAN Card Driver; and SCO OSI Development System for Unix, with programmatic interface for Application layer, Presentation and Session layers and Programmer’s Guides; no prices. And the company has added the 3.1 release of Macclesfield, Cheshire-based JSB Computer Systems Ltd’s MultiView DeskTop, the latest version of the Microsoft Windows application that enables users to view multiple MS-DOS, Windows, Xenix, and Unix applications simultaneously in multiple, configurable windows on a microcomputer. It’s $300 for two users, $1,800 for 10.
