- By Scott Bekker
Compaq Computer Corp. today announced the availability of its new cluster, the ProLiant CL1850, along with ProLiant disaster-tolerant stretched clusters for Windows NT and ProLiant clusters for SCO UnixWare 7.
The ProLiant CL1850 is a packaged, two-node cluster including a shared RAID storage system. It is available in tower or rack mount versions and is complemented by Compaq packaged service and support offerings. The ProLiant CL1850 is available today for Windows NT with NetWare clusters available in the first quarter of 2000.
For enterprises requiring disaster-tolerant levels of availability, Compaq has announced availability of its stretched clusters for Windows NT 4.0. The ProLiant HA/F500 disaster-tolerant cluster allows for servers and storage components to be separated by up to 10 kilometers and offers a no-single-point-of-failure system to minimize data loss and downtime.
For businesses requiring highly available SCO environments, the ProLiant Clusters for SCO UnixWare 7 solution works with a variety of ProLiant servers to provide the greatest degree of application availability and support from simple two-node to advanced scalable six-node configurations.
