"IBM and Oracle today announced a comprehensive initiative in support of AIX and Monterey/64(a). As part of this initiative, IBM and Oracle will offer Oracle Internet Directory within AIX and Monterey/64 as a directory option to customers. Furthermore, Oracle expects to port its database and application suites, currently available on AIX, to Monterey/64."

" 'Oracle's support for Monterey/64 is a tremendous step forward in delivering the industry's leading enterprise UNIX platform for Itanium processor-based systems,' said Doug Michels, SCO's CEO and president."

"In addition to the collaboration on Project Monterey, both IBM and Oracle are demonstrating their commitment to industry standards for UNIX, including secure directory services through the Directory Interoperability Forum (DIF), founded in July by IBM, Oracle, Novell, Data Connection Limited, Lotus Development Corp. and ISOCOR. The DIF was created to speed development and deployment of directory-enabled applications that run across different computing environments. In addition, Oracle is working with IBM on the UNIX Developers Guide-Programming Interfaces (UDG-PI) guidelines for systems using the Intel IA-64 microprocessors."
