Sequent Ships all NT NUMACenter

With its NUMACenter technology, Sequent Computer Systems Inc. (www.sequent.com) has been trying to bring Windows NT 4.0 into the data center. The structure of NUMACenter, however, has thus far been reliant on a mixed-mode environment that includes a Unix database.

Taking this effort a step further, the company is now offering an all Windows NT NumaCenter solution with a Windows NT database server. With this configuration, NUMACenter supports up to eight Pentium III Xeon processors in the database tier with up to 24 application servers.

The product is optimized for Enterprise Resource Planning, Customer Relationship Management and Data Mart applications. The mixed-mode NUMACenter supports a UNIX database server with up to 64 processors and 24 Windows NT application servers.

Sequent's Advanced Detection Availability Manager (ADAM), a single point for management and control of NUMACenter and Sequent’s SAN implementation, has also been enhanced. The ADAM console now includes an intelligent host that enables dynamic reconfiguration of devices on the ADAM LAN and ADAM components, auto-discovery, and integration of phone home and lights out capabilities.

In addition, a Web-based browser interface has been added, enabling system administrators to view status of NUMACenter devices including connected SAN elements such as a Fibre Channel switch. – Thomas Sullivan
