Compaq Computer's continuing effort to be taken seriously as an enterprise server technology vendor kicked into high gear last week with the introduction of its Wildfire series of high-end Alpha servers.

The systems, which support up to 32 processors in some models, can run both Unix and OpenVMS applications.

Key among those capabilities are clustering technologies for increased scalability and reliability, a dynamic partitioning feature that allows online resource changes and a modular design that lets users build their systems incrementally.
