In another aggressive move to boost its profile in the Internet market HP has linked up with database specialist Informix to produce a string of souped up Web-enabled servers.
From June the company is to bundle Informix? Universal Server object-relational database and Web-related software with its new Domain Enterprise Risc-based servers. The Domain servers, available since November, ship with HP?s Openmail email application, systems management software based on HP Openview and Netscape Communications's Suitespot server software.
Other Informix software components will include Universal Web connect, for connecting the database to a Web server; Web Datablade, which is a set of applications development tools; and Text Datablade for performing text and content searches on a Web site. According to Informix, the arrangement is not exclusive. The company hopes to make similar arrangements with other major Risc hardware vendors.
Ilanah Ron, European Internet marketing manager at HP, said: ?We are already one of Informix? biggest Vars and according to IDC we were the second biggest vendor of Web servers last year. But this link up enables very quick development of Web servers with sophisticated data type and content.?
Earlier this week HP announced a link up with Cisco Systems to deliver Internet-ready networked computing solutions. (See related story)
