SCO's UNIXWARE 7 POWERS HIGH-VOLUME INTEL SERVERS 
INTO THE DATA CENTER

New UnixWare 7 Release Delivers Data Center Capabilities for Volume Server
Systems, Leverages New Intel Processors and Is Key Step toward "Monterey 64"

CeBIT '99, Hanover, Germany (March 18, 1999) - During a CeBIT press
conference today, SCO (NASDAQ:SCOC), together with leading enterprise
partners, announced UnixWare 7 Data Center Edition - the most powerful and
advanced server operating environment for volume Intel servers. It is the
first operating system to fully exploit the new generation of Intel
processors and a key milestone on the path to "Monterey 64".

"This release is an important milestone that marks a new era of data center
computing," said Ray Anderson, senior vice president of Marketing at SCO.
"Today, SCO is delivering the power that volume Intel systems need to move
into the data center. Large enterprises can now adopt a high-volume,
standards-based environment that delivers top price/performance with the
high reliability and scalability that is required for data center computing."

Built for Large Scale Computing
UnixWare 7 Data Center Edition is designed and tuned for data center
applications on the highest-end, multi-processing Intel servers, including
unprecedented database performance for the demanding data mining and data
warehousing tasks. It achieves levels of reliability, scalability and
capacity never before seen in any volume operating system.

Rock-solid Reliability and Availability: System enhancements provide for
10,000 hours Mean Time Before Software Stops (MTBSS), translating into
about one hour of planned and unplanned downtime per year, or 99.99%
availability. With UnixWare clustering, downtime is virtually eliminated.

Unparalleled Scalability and Capacity: UnixWare 7 Data Center Edition ships
standard with support for 32GB of main memory and eight processors. By
licensing support for additional CPUs, these can be expanded to 64GB and 32
processors, which is far beyond the capabilities of other volume Intel
based systems and beyond most RISC based UNIX systems.

UnixWare 7 Data Center Edition ships with licenses for 150 users, which can
be dynamically extended by simply increasing the user license count to
support thousands of users. Networking improvements have resulted in a
significant increase in TCP/IP scalability and performance. 

The new edition supports data center-class diagnostics with an SQL-based
system and application event log and reporting tool. This provides for
auditing and alert processing, using sophisticated query-based reporting
mechanisms. Comprehensive management of complex data center environments
can now be handled by extracting information using standard SQL-based
tools. The system also includes built-in disk striping, mirroring and
spanning. 

""UnixWare 7 Data Center Edition addresses key customer needs by providing
improved availability, reliability and scalability," said Mary McDowell,
Vice President and General Manager, Industry Standard Server Division at
Compaq Computer Corporation. "Customers requiring a highly reliable UNIX
operating system on industry standard platforms are the ultimate
beneficiaries of the UnixWare 7 Data Center Edition running on Compaq
ProLiant servers."

As part of the UnixWare 7 Release 7.1 product line, this edition includes
the acclaimed Webtop, providing users with easy access to server-based
applications from any browser, anywhere in the world. It delivers ultimate
manageability for systems administrators, reducing applications deployment
and maintenance time.

Leverages New Generation of Intel Power 
UnixWare 7 Data Center Edition provides optimal support for the new
generation of Intel processor-based systems. With new, high-powered 8-way
Intel processor-based systems due later this year, UnixWare 7 Data Center
Edition is already designed to maximize the performance capabilities of
these servers. 

Road to "Monterey 64"
SCO recognizes the investment its customers have made in 32-bit computing
and provides a safe path to 64-bit computing on IA-64. UnixWare 7 is an
integral component of "Project Monterey", an initiative with IBM, Intel and
Sequent to deliver a single, volume UNIX product line for current and
future 32-bit and 64-bit systems. The entire UnixWare 7 Release 7.1 product
line serves as the base for future AIX technology updates as part of the
Monterey family integration plans. 

Enterprise Vendors Back UnixWare System
UnixWare is backed by leading enterprise OEMs, making it the most
widely-supported UNIX system on the market today. Compaq, Data General,
Hewlett-Packard, IBM, ICL, Siemens, Unisys and others have endorsed
UnixWare for the enterprise. Enterprise ISVs such as BEA, CA, IBM,
Informix, Oracle and many others have endorsed UnixWare as a power
deployment platform for enterprise applications. 

"Combining Oracle's industry leading information management software with
the scalability and reliability of UnixWare 7 Data Center Edition enables
users to achieve new levels of power, performance and ease-of-use," said
Raymond Wong, VP of Platform Technologies Division at Oracle Corporation.
"Oracle, together with UnixWare 7 Data Center Edition, create an ideal
platform for businesses running OLTP, electronic commerce, data warehousing
and ERP applications."

SCO AND LEADING ENTERPRISE SYSTEM VENDORS BRING NEW ERA OF VOLUME ECONOMICS
TO THE DATA CENTER

High-Volume Model Moves Up-Market; New UnixWare Hits Milestone
Along "Project Monterey" Roadmap

CeBIT '99, Hanover, Germany (March 18, 1999) - SCO (NASDAQ: SCOC) and
industry-leading enterprise partners today introduced the beginning of new
era in data center computing that delivers the benefits of "volume
economics". Driving this change are the latest generation of Intel
multiprocessor-based servers and the new UnixWare 7 Data Center Edition,
offering advanced data center capabilities for IA-32 systems and
compatibility with the forthcoming "Monterey 64" UNIX operating system. 

The volume economic model derives benefits from the pervasiveness of
commodity hardware and software platforms. With the arrival of
high-powered, high-volume enterprise servers and operating systems, this
model is moving up into the enterprise and data center. 

"The high-volume model is a pragmatic approach that delivers what's
important to customers, such as improved performance, higher quality,
better affordability and wider application availability," said Doug
Michels, president and CEO of SCO. "That's why we're seeing such a strong
push for this model to move up-market into the enterprise and data center.
SCO and its OEM partners drive a huge portion of a worldwide UNIX business
that totals billions of dollars every year. Their support clearly indicates
that the move to a high-volume model continues to gain momentum."

Many of today's midrange and high-end systems that run data center and
"glass house" operations require custom-built applications, tools and other
components. Businesses today are seeking to control costs, increase
flexibility, and adopt new technologies, while still maintaining the
stability and reliability of their systems. 

"Large organizations depend upon standards-based, interoperable, scalable,
manageable operating environments," said Dan Kusnetzky, director of
operating environment and serverware research at International Data
Corporation (IDC). "As these organizations adopt today's high end
Intel-based systems and tomorrow's IA64-based systems, these operating
environments become even more important. After all, over 50% of all UNIX
server operating environments ran on Intel-based systems in 1998."

According to IDC, the UnixWare operating system is currently the fastest
growing UNIX server operating environment in the industry. By 2002, IDC
predicts the UNIX market for Intel processor-based systems will double in
volume and triple in revenue.*

"The UnixWare platform takes advantage of the power of our new Pentium III
Xeon processors," said John Miner, vice president and general manager of
Intel's Enterprise Server Group. "Leading systems vendors are delivering
bigger, faster and more reliable Intel Architecture-based servers than ever
before. With the availability of clustering and 8-way systems, Intel-based
platforms running UnixWare 7 will further penetrate large enterprises and
data warehouses."

SCO Delivers Solid Roadmap for the New Millennium
The new UnixWare 7 Data Center Edition is a direct result of the data
center initiative announced in February 1998, between SCO, Compaq, Data
General, ICL and Unisys. This release enables large enterprises to deploy
high-powered, volume Intel systems immediately, with a solid 32-bit and
64-bit roadmap to the future. The new UnixWare release is an integral
component of "Project Monterey", a joint project of SCO, IBM, Intel, and
Sequent to deliver a single UNIX product line for current and future 32-bit
and 64-bit systems. 

"Today, our work on Project Monterey with SCO is building momentum,
especially for the available 32-bit UNIX on Intel-based server solutions,"
said Rajiv Samant, general manager of UNIX, IBM. "Looking forward, we will
leverage our key technologies and enhancements in the development of
Monterey 64."

Enterprise Backing
The UnixWare platform is backed by more leading enterprise OEMs than any
other UNIX System on the market, including Compaq, Data General,
Hewlett-Packard, IBM, ICL, Siemens, Unisys and others. Their widespread
support enhances the UnixWare value proposition for customers by delivering
the economic benefit of a volume operating system that runs across multiple
hardware platforms.

Application Support
UnixWare runs applications from the leading enterprise application vendors,
including Oracle, IBM (DB2, Tivoli, MQSeries), Computer Associates,
Informix, BEA, and many others. The ISV community recognizes and welcomes
the penetration of high-volume UNIX based Intel systems in the enterprise
and beyond. 

Proven Service and Support
Key to deploying any enterprise and data center environment is world-class
service and support, and SCO and its partners work together to deliver just
that. In addition to leveraging the proven enterprise service and support
expertise of its enterprise OEM partners, SCO today rolled out enhanced
Professional Services offerings designed to provide top-level support for
SCO's growing enterprise and data center customers.
