  • Novel Suse Linux

  • SCO Open Server Unix

Freedom of Choice in the Future


Windows servers can be simple stand-alone peer to peer pc's as well as dedicated server configurations.

For large number of concurrent Octopus users (+10) we  always recommend Linux (Red Hat) for IBM xSeries or IBM Aix on Risc 6000 / pSeries.

Workstations can be of any type of 32-bit compatible Windows pc's including Windows XP/2000/NT/ME/98.

You also have the extra choice of not spending any money or time on a server for your Octopus application and in stead use our ASP Customer Centre from any physical location and run the application over the Internet.

The Thin Client technology is based upon normal IP-protocols and will run on all standard pc's where you have an access to the Internet. We can provide with different levels of security at your choice including firewall VPN and validation upon an exclusive list of permitted Mac addressees as en extra security in addition to traditional user names and password for getting access to your private applications.

At our ASP Customer Centre we have selected an IBM xSeries 346 with duplicated CPU, Power supply, Network etc. and the storage is secured by mirroring (raid 5) and daily automatic backup on a physical different location. Our Internet upload capacity is 100 mbits, so you can get full value of your high speed Internet connections.

Even the server is placed on a physical different location than your local pc, you can still get full utilization of the integration between your ERP data files and your local MS Office based application. Data can easily be extracted and transferred by using the build-in user friendly dialogs without any knowledge of FTP software or other complicated communication software.

For example you can by pushing a single button transfer the contents of an extracted amount of history data or transactions directly to your pc and an Excel spreadsheet job is automatically started with the actual contents.
