Hyundai's subsidiary Axil has made a bid to capture the UK channel, only weeks after Compaq rejected its multiprocessing solution.
The company has recruited US company Northbridge to sell its NT-based eight-way server and has delivered figures which, if true, beat equivalent offerings from ALR, Unisys and others.
In December 1997, Hewlett Packard adopted the Axil solution, while both Compaq and IBM said they would both wait for Intel to release its Corollary platform.
The Northbridge kit, so far on sale only in the US, can either be a rack or server mounted system.
Neither Compaq nor IBM will comment on their close relationship with Intel over the Corollary deal.
But Julian Neath, managing director of ALR UK, now part of Gateway, told 'VNU Newswire' last month that customer demand for all SMP systems exceeded demands.
