Computing Environment (DCE) is a widely accepted set of tools for
developing and deploying multi-platform, secure, enterprise-wide
distributed computing applications.
In June of 1999, Hewlett-Packard (formerly Compaq Computer Corporation)
contracted with Entegrity Solutions® Corporation to take over
responsibility for development, maintenance and support of DCE
(including DFS) for Tru64 UNIX and Windows. As part of this
agreement, HP also transferred the ownership of the DCE product
set on these platforms to Entegrity®. Note that DCE
on OpenVMS and DCE on HP NonStop Kernel are not part of the agreement with Entegrity.
Hewlett-Packard has now transferred the additional responsibility
for sales to Entegrity. As of September 1, 2002, HP will no longer
offer product licenses or support services for DCE/DFS for Tru64
UNIX. Customers who wish to purchase licenses, updates, or support
services for DCE and DFS for Tru64 UNIX or SC AlphaServer systems
are encouraged to contact Entegrity Solutions using the information
provided below. To prevent interruption of service we recommend
that this be done prior to the date your current support contract
expires, or before December 31, 2003, whichever comes first.
