Platinum will launch version 2.0 of the Microsoft Repository, which it has ported to Solaris, HP/UX and the OS/390 mainframe, at the Comdex Enterprise show in San Francisco next week.
Beta releases of the offering running under Solaris are due to ship next month, but the full product will not be available till the end of the year, although it will act as a back end to Microsoft's Visual Studio 6.0 development tools, which ship this week.
Microsoft and Platinum also plan to announce version 3.0 of the Repository at Comdex, which will be optimised for data warehousing and for dealing with corporate business processes.
This comes despite concerns that the development deal between the two vendors would not be renewed beyond version 2.0 of the product due to quibbles over who should pay for porting any extensions to platforms other than Windows NT (see Newswire 16 December 1997).
Version 3.0 of the Repository will be based on Microsoft's Data Warehousing Framework, however, which will ship as part of version 7.0 of the SQL Server database, and include hooks into legacy mainframe databases and operating systems such as MVS.
The product will also support replication, data distribution and role based security models.
