Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

NEC has signed a deal with Bull to provide it with a high-end platform based on Intel's Itanium architecture.

Bull will integrate NEC's 16-way hardware platform (code named AzusA) platform, which features an NEC developed chip set, with the AIX 5L operating system and market it worldwide as part of its range of enterprise servers.

This OEM agreement will allow Bull to expand its portfolio with new Itanium based servers, running AIX 5L, 64-bit Windows 2000, and 64-bit Linux. For NEC the deal allows it to extend the distribution of its technology.

Earlier this year Bull became the first vendor to have successfully ported and run AIX5L on a 16-way Itanium-based platform. ®
