COMPAQ INTRODUCES NETWARE PRODUCTS WITH INNOVATIVE SERVER MANAGEMENT AND OPTIMIZATION TOOLS

 COMPAQ INTRODUCES NETWARE PRODUCTS WITH INNOVATIVE SERVER
 MANAGEMENT AND OPTIMIZATION TOOLS
 HOUSTON, June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Compaq Computer Corporation (NYSE: CPQ) today announced it will resell industry-standard Novell NetWare with complementary COMPAQ server management products and integration tools. These products, in conjunction with COMPAQ hardware, help customers take control of their network resources and reduce the cost of network administration.
 The new NetWare v3.11 product from Compaq includes the following components: industry-standard NetWare, COMPAQ INSIGHT Manager, Performance Management TechNote, and NetWare Programs from Compaq. In addition, Compaq is participating with Novell in the limited-time NetWare v3.11 Premium promotion. Complementing NetWare v3.11, Compaq is offering a suite of server management tools and NetWare Services Manager (NSM) from Compaq.
 The products that Compaq is introducing today make NetWare servers based on COMPAQ hardware the most comprehensively managed in the industry, and address a key problem in today's network environments -- the need to reduce time and manpower spent on server and network administration -- by enabling businesses to run their information systems more efficiently and cost effectively.
 "With today's announcement, Compaq reaffirms its position as the leader in providing not only advanced PC servers, but premier NetWare networking software as well," said Gary Stimac, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Systems Division. "While other computer manufacturers resell NetWare, Compaq delivers value-added features that enhance the server and network management capabilities of NetWare servers." COMPAQ SERVER MANAGEMENT AND OPTIMIZATION
 The COMPAQ INSIGHT Manage NetWare servers on the network and presents the administrator with a list of these servers. The administrator sees a physical representation of the server and can monitor current and historical status of its various subsystems -- whether it is across the hall or across the country -- without disruption of normal server operations.
 A key benefit of COMPAQ INSIGHT Manager is its ability to provide historical data about a server's operation -- in effect, it acts as a preventive maintenance utility. By analyzing the historical data, potential problems can be anticipated and proactive maintenance can be scheduled during non-peak times to minimize loss of productivity and down time.
 COMPAQ INSIGHT Manager is included with NetWare from Compaq and is also sold as a separate unit for Compaq customers with existing NetWare v3.11 installations. COMPAQ Management Agents are licensed on a per- server basis.
 The Performance Management TechNote is a document that helps the network administrator optimize COMPAQ servers running NetWare. In addition, it provides guidance for analyzing NetWare network performance and status. It includes recommendations for configuring COMPAQ servers in a NetWare environment -- recommendations from Compaq engineers that were developed based on extensive testing in real-world environments.
 The NetWare Programs diskette from Compaq contains the optimized drivers developed by Compaq to take advantage of advanced COMPAQ subsystems in NetWare environments. COMPAQ NETWORK MANAGEMENT PRODUCTS
 NetWare Services Manager complements Compaq's server management focus by providing more detailed NetWare operating system information and management features.
 With NetWare from Compaq, COMPAQ INSIGHT Manager, and NetWare Services Manager from Compaq, Compaq is offering simplified access to the key tools users need to cost-effectively manage and control their NetWare networks based on COMPAQ hardware. PRICING AND AVAILABILITY
 NetWare v3.11 from Compaq and NetWare v3.11 Premium from Compaq -- with all of their value-added features -- will be available at a suggested list price comparable to other standard NetWare or NetWare Premium offerings (see attached pricing detail).
