UNIX SYSTEM LABORATORIES ANNOUNCES AGREEMENT WITH KENDALL SQUARE RESEARCH

 UNIX SYSTEM LABORATORIES ANNOUNCES AGREEMENT
 WITH KENDALL SQUARE RESEARCH
 SUMMIT, N.J., Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- UNIX System Laboratories, Inc. (USL) today said that Kendall Square Research, developer of very high performance parallel computer systems, has become the latest customer for the TUXEDO(R) Enterprise Transaction System.
 The two companies have also agreed to collaborate in efforts to demonstrate the price/performance advantages of open, standards-based transaction processing for large-scale commercial applications that were once the province of proprietary mainframes.
 Under the agreement, the Waltham, Mass.-based Kendall Square will offer USL's TUXEDO Enterprise Transaction Processing System and the TUXEDO System/D database on their new, highly parallel computer system, the KSR1. Designed for intensive, large-scale transaction processing, corporate decision support systems, and numeric processing applications, the KSR1 provides more processing power than proprietary mainframe computers at a fraction of the cost.
 Henry Burkhardt III, chairman, president and CEO of Kendall Square Research, said, "By porting TUXEDO to the KSR1, we will provide our users with the first true high performance, open systems OLTP solution. The combination of KSR1 and the TUXEDO system will support high- intensity OLTP applications that are national in scope and complexity. We are pleased to have established a strategic relationship with USL and expect to make additional announcements later in 1992."
 Roel Pieper, president and CEO of USL, said, "Kendall Square Research is pursuing the tradition of innovation that has made the UNIX(R) System industry so competitive. The combination of the raw performance of the KSR1 family with the OLTP performance enhancement provided by the TUXEDO monitor makes an extremely attractive, reliable platform for high-volume customer applications, such as national reservation or financial systems."
 An open systems alternative to proprietary mainframes, the KSR1 is a family of 64-bit, highly scalable, 8-to-1088 processor parallel computer systems with a traditional shared memory architecture. This combination lets KSR1 customers use the wealth of existing UNIX system software tools, languages and applications software in the high-performance KSR1 parallel processing environment. Virtually all existing algorithms, computational science, OLTP and database applications were developed for shared memory architectures.
 USL's TUXEDO Enterprise Transaction Processing System (Release 4.2) provides a state-of-the-art framework for harnessing distributed computing systems into common application environments. It supports on- line transaction processing (OLTP) applications and open OLTP development using a variety of operating environments, hardware platforms, and database management systems, from mainframes to workstations and desktop PCs.
 The TUXEDO System implements X/Open's distributed transaction processing standards, the most important of which is the XA standard, which enables different databases, such as Informix, Ingres, Oracle, TUXEDO System/D and Unify, to work together as part of one distributed application. TUXEDO System/D is a database management program designed for high throughput when used with the TUXEDO System/T transaction monitor. Endorsed by UNIX International as its OLTP reference implementation, the TUXEDO System is available on nine operating systems and on more than 20 different hardware platforms.
 Kendall Square Research Corporation develops, manufactures, markets and supports a family of high performance parallel computer systems to satisfy the production requirements of the world's largest users in on- line transaction processing, database management applications and numerically-intensive computation.
 UNIX System Laboratories, Inc., headquartered in Summit, develops and markets the UNIX System V operating system and other Open Systems software, including the TUXEDO Enterprise Transaction Processing System, Open Networking Platform(R) OSI technology, and the C++ Programming Language System, to the worldwide computer industry.
