Compaq and Oracle are to unveil a joint training programme for the Oracle Parallel Server database next week.
The two companies will detail the plan at the Oracle Open World conference in San Francisco.
Compaq also reiterated its commitment to OPS and said its new Proliant 6500 and 1850 servers were certified to run the solution. Compaq will offer a Parallel Database Cluster/01000 based on two to six Proliants, a storage area network with a total of 816Gbytes of shared capacity, and the Oracle software. A two-node configuration with 45Gbytes will cost about #35,000.
Compaq also said the clustered solution would be sold more heavily through the channel from next year as the components of a parallel system become more standardised.
