SUNSOFT ALMOST READY TO CHEER HIGH-END SOLARIS USERS WITH RELIABILITY FEATURES FROM AMDAHL

By CBR Staff Writer

Over and above last week’s Solaris fest, SunSoft Inc is already planning an additional Solaris announcement targeted at high-end commercial users, which is thought to be in the works for a couple of weeks’ time. It is likely to outline implementation details of some of the joint development work it has been doing with Amdahl Corp to add enhanced reliability, availability and serviceability, reliability, availability and security features derived from Amdahl’s UTS mainframe Unix to Solaris. It promises a more robust kernel, further symmetric multiprocessing optimisation for parallel databases, including a distributed lock manager, enhanced failover support and further down the line, improvements to its own admittedly simple-minded clustering option. SunSoft is soon expected to add to its price list Amdahl’s A+ unbundled middleware suite of high-end system performance measurement modules that the mainframer is currently offering on Solaris. Meanwhile, Amdahl is preparing a new OpenWatch module for remote performance measurement in June, and a performance modelling system currently planned for the last quarter.
