Novell Showcases UnixWare 2 Solutions At Uniforum '95

UnixWare 2 Solutions To Be Publicly Demonstrated For the First Time

SAN JOSE, Calif.--March 7, 1995--In a continuing effort to offer customers best-of-breed UNIX solutions, Novell, Inc. today announced that it will host the UnixWare Solutions Pavilion at UniForum in Dallas from March 14 - 16. For the first time customers will be able to see key third-party applications running on Novell's recently announced UnixWare 2 operating system for the first time. More than 35 Pavilion vendors are expected to demonstrate over 50 third-party applications, hardware, and peripherals developed for UnixWare 2 and UnixWare 1.1.

UnixWare supports more than 3,000 commercial applications, ranging from enterprise line-of-business software and development applications to workgroup and personal productivity, to connectivity and systems management applications. It is designed for customers seeking a powerful, cost-effective system for deploying business-critical applications across their enterprises. The UnixWare Solutions Pavilion, which received tremendous attendance at UNIX EXPO in New York City, where it was held for the first time last fall, showcases a wide variety of Novell's UnixWare partner solutions available for customers today. (Please see attached list of all UnixWare Solutions Pavilion participants.)

"We are very pleased to be demonstrating the wide range of solutions based on UnixWare 2 to the public for the first time. In partnership with our developers, Novell is delivering best-of-breed solutions that enable our customers to take advantage of the tremendous price/performance advantages of industry-standard hardware. UnixWare is a catalyst in this equation, allowing customers to run their business-critical applications on a wide range of powerful, multi-processor servers," said Allen Cohen, director of ISV Marketing for Novell's UNIX Systems Group. "UniForum attendees will not want to miss this showcase."

UnixWare 2, which shipped to OEMs and key accounts in December 1994, will be available worldwide at the end of March through the standard Novell distribution channel. Full product line availability through Novell's authorized distributors for English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish language versions also begin this month. Customers should contact their local Novell Authorized Reseller or call 1-800-638-9273 in the U.S. or 801-429-5588 outside the U.S.

Key development accounts are already working on migrating their applications to UnixWare 2. Pre-release copies of UnixWare 2 are available through March 31 to developers interested in porting applications to UnixWare 2. Developers can order the Development Bundle, consisting of the UnixWare 2 Application Server and Software Development Kit, at a special introductory price of US$195 for CD-ROM and US$245 for tape, by calling Novell at 1-800-REDWORD.

Several Pavilion vendors will announce new products for UnixWare 2 during the show and others will be demonstrating new products for the first time at the Pavilion. A complete UnixWare Solutions Pavilion press kit will be available at the UniForum press room.
