SCO Group has unveiled its OpenServer 6 software, which unifies the company’s web- and Unix-based operating systems to improve user productivity from a single platform.
OpenServer 6 – which was codenamed Project Legend – integrates the System V release 5 Unix kernel of SCO UnixWare 7.0 with the web-based OpenServer platform.
The upgraded server allows developers and users to build Unix, web and Java applications using a single SCO code base.
HP is among the first hardware companies to support the operating system, offering SCO OpenServer 6 certification on its ProLiant server platforms.
SCO said OpenServer 6 allowed customers to manage e-mail and other collaboration, back-up, mobile integration and internet access on a “low-cost solution".
OpenServer 6 Starter Edition costs £320 and the Enterprise Edition costs £750.
The Starter Edition comes with a two-user licence and supports up to 1GB of system memory and one processor. The Enterprise Edition provides a 10-user licence and supports up to 4GB of system memory and four processors.
