NCR and Chevalier have signed an agreement allowing Chevalier to sell NCR's high availability, fault tolerant WorldMark enterprise servers. Chevalier will also handle NCR's Lifekeeper software for high availability for clustering on the Microsoft Windows NT platform. NCR is well known for its near monopoly of the ATM machines used all over Hong Kong. Some estimates put NCR-based ATM machines at 95 per cent of all those employed in Hong Kong. Chevalier (Computers) general manager Edmund Lau said: 'Combined with NCR's strengths, Chevalier can now provide end-to-end high availability, fault tolerant NT solutions and services to customers.' NCR director of strategic communications for Asia Grace Su said: 'Our strengths are solutions. Chevalier's is its knowledge of NT.' NCR is now following a policy of supporting the more traditional Unix platform as well as the new Windows NT. 'We want to cover what the user wants today,' Ms Su said. Although there are questions about the ability of Windows NT to push Unix out of the client-server market, it is clear NT is becoming more popular with many clients. Unix is not yet in danger, but NT is certainly making progress. NCR has built a reputation for reliability in the Unix world and Chevalier has had over 16 years experience in the system integration business.
