"Compaq on Tuesday tapped Novell Directory Services (NDS) as its high-end directory server of choice in an alliance between the two companies that also has Novell working to bring its first 64-bit port of NDS to Compaq's Tru64 Unix on AlphaServer platforms."
"Compaq said it chose NDS for its present and future NonStop-branded network backbone offerings due to NDS's high scalability and cross-platform attributes. When NDS for Tru64 Unix arrives by June 2000, it will be targeted at the largest telecommunications companies, Internet service providers, and global enterprises, according to officials from the companies."
"As part of the deal, the financial terms of which were not disclosed, Compaq will optimize its ProLiant servers for NDS on Novell NetWare, Microsoft NT, and Linux. Furthermore, Compaq's upcoming AXL200 Accelerator PCI card will allow users to enhance the capabilities of NDS-supported security."
