Compaq's enterprise computing ambitions

Compaq's enterprise computing ambitions

With the greater part of restructuring due to the acquisition of Tandem behind it, Compaq last week revealed details of its enterprise computing strategy.

Compaq's goal is to achieve revenues of $US50 billion per year by 2000, with 50 per cent of revenue coming from the enterprise customer base.

The company believes that harnessing both Tandem's NonStop products and services and Compaq platforms will let Compaq offer enterprise solutions to a broad range of businesses.

Reflecting this focus on enterprise solutions, Compaq last week announced details of its E2000 platform architecture.

E2000 is based on industry standards components such as Proliant servers, Pentium Pro- (32-bit) and Merced- (64-bit) based servers, fibre channel-based storage products and backup libraries Gigabit Ethernet, ATM, and other technologies.

These systems will be integrated with operating systems including Microsoft Windows NT, SCO Unixware and with applications including Microsoft, SAP and Oracle.
