Tandem Delivers Enterprise Transaction Processing Capabilities to Object-Oriented Middleware; Tandem Leverages IBM's SOMobjects Technology for Distributed Object Computing.
NonStop DOM is aimed at business-critical transaction processing applications in the financial, retail, and telecommunications marketplaces, and is the first implementation of SOMobjects version 3.0 from an independent vendor. NonStop DOM allows software objects residing on Tandem's highly reliable Himalaya(r) parallel server platform to interact transparently with objects residing on other server platforms. Tandem has provided additional value by integrating SOMobjects technology with its existing NonStop Transaction Services found on the Himalaya platform.
"We are pleased to be collaborating with IBM in leveraging SOMobjects technology with our expertise in distributed computing, parallel systems, and enterprise-level transaction processing," said Bill Heil, general manager and senior vice-president of Tandem's ServerWare(tm) software business unit. "NonStop DOM is an important addition to our open systems initiative, designed to bring Tandem's well-known reliability, availability, and scalability to a broader market as we move into providing distributed object solutions."
"Tandem is the first of what we anticipate to be many vendors offering SOMobjects technology on their platforms for heterogeneous distributed object computing, and we are pleased that Tandem is leveraging our strategic distributed object middleware by adding business-critical computing value to SOMobjects," said Steve Mills, IBM general manager of Software Solutions. "IBM is determined in its efforts to make SOMobjects the dominant technology for creating and using component software on the widest range of platforms."
Tandem's NonStop DOM for the Himalaya platform is available now. IBM's SOMobjects version 3.0 will be generally available by the end of 1996. The two companies will demonstrate their SOMobjects 3.0 products at Object World West, August 20-22 in San Jose, California.
