Data General and NuView Form Technology Alliance


WESTBORO, March. 15th, 1999 –Data General Corporation and NuView, Inc.   announced today the formation of a technology alliance.  As part of the agreement, Data General plans to pre-install a limited version of NuView's ClusterX software on all its AViiON NT Cluster-in-a-Box servers.  ClusterX is the enterprise-wide cluster management solution for Microsoft Cluster Server, which is part of Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0, Enterprise Edition.

``No other tool on the market today offers the capabilities that ClusterX has for managing high-availability NT clusters," said David Flawn, vice president, NT Marketing for Data General.  ``Pre-installing a limited version of ClusterX on every AViiON server used in our popular NT Cluster-in-a-Box solution at no extra charge further reinforces our commitment to provide high-availability computing to our customers running mission-critical applications."

Data General also will market and resell the full edition of ClusterX software, and offer service and support to all ClusterX users through its Microsoft Authorized Support Centers worldwide. 

``Data General and NuView have had a long-standing relationship. We are very pleased by this expanded alliance, as Data General is recognized as a leader in innovative information systems technology," said Rahul Mehta, president and chief executive officer of NuView, Inc. ``We are proud that Data General has recognized ClusterX as the leading high-availability clustering management software to extend its expertise in the implementation and deployment of mission-critical applications. This alliance also benefits NuView customers by providing ClusterX users with access to Data General's world-class service and support organization."

ClusterX, developed by NuView, is the first truly comprehensive high-availability cluster management solution for MSCS. ClusterX's application and configuration cluster management solution helps administrators reach their clustered systems potential for high-availability computing.

ClusterX's powerful graphical views and expert knowledge built into ClusterX enable administrators to quickly and easily install, configure, monitor, diagnose, manage, respond to, and administer their clustered systems.  ClusterX simplifies the management of clustered mission-critical applications such as SAP R/3, Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS), Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL Server, and Oracle7 Enterprise Server, among others.

Cluster-in-a-Box packaging
Data General's popular AViiON NT Cluster-in-a-Box solution consists of two AViiON servers (up to 16 processors) running Microsoft Cluster Server, a CLARiiON RAID Fibre Channel storage system, and the company's NTerprise Manager server management software, including NTAlertSM ``call home" support tool in a single rackmounted system.

``Data General was the first and is still the only company to offer this innovative pre-assembled, pre-loaded, and pre-tested package for the NT market. The benefits for the customer are quite clear: minimized implementation risk with quick, trouble-free deployment of their applications, and 7x24 protection, leading to faster return on their investment," said Mr. Flawn.
