"Bull announced today in North America that it has successfully ported and run the 64-bit UNIX operating system from Project Monterey (code-named Monterey/64) on an 8-way Intel Itanium processor-based server, thereby achieving an industry first and clearly positioning itself as a market leader for scalability and performance in the IA-64 arena. Project Monterey is a major UNIX operating system initiative led by IBM, Intel and SCO and supported by key OEMs, such as Bull, to extend the enterprise strengths of AIX to the Intel IA-64 architecture."

"As one of the leading members of the Monterey OEM council, Bull has recently ported and run Monterey/64 on an 8-way Itanium(TM) server. This has been achieved by Bull's R&D teams in France. This breakthrough achievement clearly demonstrates Bull's market leadership in developing and integrating scalable server infrastructures for the most demanding e-business customer environments."

"This announcement further underscores Bull's commitment to the IA-64 platform. Bull is actively engaged in a technology co-operation with Intel to bring to market highly reliable and scalable servers for the Itanium processor and its successors, starting in the timeframe of the availability of Itanium processors. Bull's forthcoming range of IA-64 servers will support Monterey/64, the 64-bit version of Windows 2000 and 64-bit Linux."
