Oracle opens up Unix market

Oracle and IBM announced at Oracle Open World that Oracle Internet Directory will be offered as an option within Monterey/64, the Unix operating system being developed in a joint effort between IBM and SCO.

Oracle's announcement opens the Unix market to users, whether they're currently running IBM's DB2 or Oracle's 8 or 8i databases, said Miles Barel, IBM's program director for Unix marketing. Prior to the announcement, only IBM's Secure Way Directory was offered.

Monterey/64 will run on Intel's IA-64 processor, currently in development, and on Intel's IA-32 processor and IBM's PowerProcessor.

The directories for Monterey/64 are expected to be available by the middle of next year, when the IA-64 chip, officially named the Itanium, is slated for delivery.
