Xenix users with 80386-based micros are demanding more powerful database applications, and both Unify Corp and Oracle Corp are now making their mark on the Xenix marketplace for the first time. Santa Cruz Operation showed off its own newly launched Integra relational database at Uniforum last week in conjunction with the Accell applications development language tools from Unify Corp. Santa Cruz has hitherto offered the Informix Inc’s Informix relational database to licensees of its Xenix implementations, but will now be concentrating on its own new Integra package, which has the ability to read existing Santa Criz database files from both Informix 3.3 and Foxbase and Foxbase Plus DB2 workalikes, and will work with Informix’s Ace report language. A spokesman for the Santa Cruz, California based company said that it had launched the product to gain a greater degree of control over the important database aspect of the operating system. The deal also offers Unify Corp an entree into the Xenix market. Santa Cruz also showed a new integrated office automation software package, Portfolio, at Uniforum. Separately, Oracle Corp announced an SCO Xenix version of the full Oracle database and application development tools, its first for Xenix users. And IBM is now offering both Oracle and Relational Technology Inc’s Ingres under its AIX Unix for the RT Personal and PS/2 Model 80.
