Syntax Inc., which worked with Sun Microsystems Inc. before Sun
unveiled Project Cascade--its ongoing Unix-NT interoperability
effort based on AT&T Corp.'s Advanced Server for Unix-is about
to launch an anti-Project Cascade press tour.
Project Cascade, which was uncorked in New York last month, will
allow Solaris to run native Windows NT services and act as an NT
Primary or Backup Domain Controller. For the first time, Sun can
drop Solaris machines into an NT network, effectively replacing NT
Project Cascade has been a hit among Sun resellers, who expect
it to replace SunLink, Sun's current Unix-NT interoperability
technology. That's where Syntax fits in. SunLink also relies on
Syntax's TotalNet Advanced Server (TAS), and Syntax says Sun
shouldn't have gone to AT&T.
A Linux version of TAS is in the works.
