NEWS BRIEFS

Houston, TEXAS — Compaq Computer Corporation announced new and enhanced OpenVMS operating system software products and capabilities designed to enable millions of users around the world to fully meet the enormous requirements of their eBusiness environment, and take full advantage of the power and performance of the Internet.

Highlighting this announcement is the release of OpenVMS V7.3, the latest version of Compaq’s highly regarded operating system, which delivers new and improved RAS (reliability/availability/scalability) capabilities, new additions to Compaq’s touted Galaxy software architecture to support the new Compaq AlphaServer GS Series systems, along with several new eBusiness-related products and technologies such as:

— Compaq Secure Web Server V1.0 for OpenVMS Alpha – a powerful, flexible Web server based on the Apache Web Server which provides 128-bit encryption technology, all the standard Apache extensions and Java and Perl scripting support.

— Compaq Java 2 Software Development Kit (SDK) Standard Edition v1.2.2 for OpenVMS Alpha – provides the latest technology from Sun Microsystems to develop and deploy Java applications on OpenVMS Alpha.

— Compaq Advanced Server V7.3 for OpenVMS Alpha – a Windows 2000- compatible enterprise file and print server for the OpenVMS operating system which provides Windows desktops with highly available services through OpenVMS clustering.

— Attunity Connect “On Platform” Package for OpenVMS – object-oriented middleware which facilitates the development of applications that access, integrate, and update data from multiple, heterogeneous sources across a wide range of operating system platforms.

— OpenVMS Enterprise Directory for eBusiness – provides highly scalable directory information services to end-users, applications and software developers.

— Compaq TCP/IP Services V5.1 for OpenVMS – provides interoperability and resource sharing among other systems running OpenVMS, UNIX, Windows NT, Windows 2000, and others that support TCP/IP and NFS.

— Compaq DECforms Web Connector V3.0 – a layered software product that provides transparent Web access to existing interactive applications.

— Reliable Transaction Router V4.0 – provides customers with an object oriented interface, Web-based system management, and transaction shadow performance enhancements.

— CD-ROM for OpenVMS eBusiness Infrastructure – an alternative to downloading products from the Web, which is fully licensed and supported as part of the OpenVMS operating system.

— Compaq DECram V3.0 for OpenVMS – a disk device driver that improves I/O performance by allowing an OpenVMS system manager to create pseudo disks (RAMdisks) which reside in main memory.

This announcement advances Compaq’s long-term commitment to OpenVMS operating system users around the world – both long-time users as well as a growing list of new customers – who are benefiting from an operating system that provides the highest levels of availability, scalability, reliability, security and price-performance for enterprise and Internet computing.

Rich Marcello, Vice President of Compaq’s OpenVMS Group said, “With the unprecedented expansion of the Internet, and use of the World Wide Web, customers require the highest levels of technology possible to enable them to compete and win in today’s eBusiness environment. Compaq continues to offer that cutting-edge technology as evidenced by our expanding portfolio of OpenVMS products and capabilities unveiled today.”

Customers today need an integrated, highly-reliable Internet platform that facilitates application integration; provides lightning access to files and applications; provides the ability to execute multiple operations concurrently; and offers a computing environment that is easily managed from a remote site and adaptable to meet the constantly changing needs of day-to-day business.

Compaq’s OpenVMS operating system provides for all this today, and this technology will continue to be developed to meet customer needs as new eBusiness requirements take on expanded demands for the future.

Recent business developments designed to meet customer needs well into the future confirm Compaq’s long-term commitment to its OpenVMS operating system.

New business initiatives are:

— Compaq and Cerner ASP Agreement – Compaq and Cerner Corporation, a leading developer of clinical and management information systems, have entered into a five-year, multi-million dollar agreement through which Compaq will provide its AlphaServer systems with StorageWorks products and its OpenVMS operating system for use in Cerner’s new state-of-the-art Application Server Provider (ASP) Central Data Center.

— Compaq OpenVMS Educational License Program – available to all educational institutions around the world, it provides single user licenses for the OpenVMS operating system and many layered products to an unlimited number of students, faculty and administrators in each registered institution.

— OpenVMS portal at URL: http://www.openvms.compaq.com – will provide OpenVMS operating system fans and users with an easy way to find information about OpenVMS products and services, buy OpenVMS products through the Web, train employees on the OpenVMS operating system, and search for people with OpenVMS expertise.

— Expanded global systems integration program – Compaq will be recruiting new vendors to deliver OpenVMS solutions.

— DII COE Certification – Compaq will actively seek certification per the Defense Information Infrastructure Common Operating Environment (DII COE) set of standards and guidelines to reach new customers in the U.S. Government marketplace.

— Compaq & Digital Press Agreement – Compaq and Digital Press will continue to enhance their working relationship to update existing Digital Press OpenVMS titles, generate new titles, and carry out joint marketing activities such as cross-promotion through their respective channel partners. Both parties are already working together to develop future products and investigate Web-based delivery.
