Hewlett-Packard has embarked on its largest ever single client-server installation. The deal is with Transco, the transportation arm of British Gas. Transco, which provides the gas pipeline infrastructure, employed HP, along with Oracle, Sema and Sterling, to implement a single system to maintain records for the UK's 19 million gas users in preparation for deregulation. The projected size of the database is 27Tb. HP beat IBM, ICL and Sun to the hardware contract for 48 high-end servers. The system runs on HP-UX, with Oracle 7.3.4 as the database, and will be rolled out before the end of the year. None of the parties involved would disclose the value of the contract.
