HEWLETT-PACKARD DELIVERS HP ENCINA/9000

 Encina Continues To Lead The Way As Open OLTP Enabler
 PITTSBURGH, June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Affirming Transarc Corporation's


leadership role in enabling major system vendors with strategic, client/server OLTP products, Hewlett-Packard Company (NYSE: HWP) yesterday announced general availability of HP Encina/9000.
 Built on Transarc's open, DCE-based Encina(R) products, HP Encina/9000 is an implementation of Encina for HP customers who process transactions across multi-vendor computer systems and databases. This announcement marks a major milestone in the three-year, strategic partnership between HP and Transarc to develop leading distributed computing and transaction processing solutions.
 Transarc's Encina products are the industry standard for distributed OLTP based on the Distributed Computing Environment (DCE) from the Open Software Foundation (OSF(TM)). These products provide a modular, multi-layered solution for commercial-grade OLTP that spans multiple locations, utilizes computers from many vendors and permits access to data stored in a variety of databases.
 "Hewlett-Packard's announcement of the availability of HP Encina/9000 is further indication that Encina is becoming the industry's leading online transaction processing environment for open, client/server systems," said Alfred Spector, president and CEO of Transarc. "Based upon the widely accepted OSF DCE, Encina provides customers with the power to realize the potential of networked systems in their enterprise."
 According to John Schiller, manager of Encina marketing, "With Encina's availability on IBM, Sun and Hewlett-Packard systems, Transarc is ensuring that customers can obtain Encina on the platforms they want. With a growing list of application developers, systems integrators and value-added resellers -- as part of the Transarc Partners Program -- Encina is available with the applications and supporting tools that customers need."
 To date, the Encina products have been licensed and endorsed by system vendors including Hewlett-Packard, Hitachi, IBM, NEC, and Stratus; they support the X/Open XA interface for interoperation with relational database management systems such as Informix, Ingres, Oracle and Sybase. DCE was developed by a consortium of leading computing companies including HP and Transarc. HP's adoption of Encina as its strategic enabling technology for transaction processing further reinforces its commitment to distributed computing, with DCE at its core.
 Additionally, Transarc applauds Hewlett-Packard's intention to ship the DCE Distributed File System at the end of this year. The DCE DFS, the portion of the DCE developed by Transarc, provides the ability to share data throughout a computing enterprise with high performance, security and excellent system management.
