Accelrys and Compaq Ink Software Distribution Agreement

NEW YORK, Jan. 24 - Compaq has agreed to carry Accelrys' materials-research software on its Tru64 UNIX operating system, the companies said on Wednesday.


The agreement means that the software package, Materials Studio, will be available on Compaq's AlphaServer platform, Evo Windows workstations, and Compaq ProLiant Linux servers.


Though financial details of the deal were not disclosed, the firms agreed that worldwide marketing and sales will be controlled jointly.


Materials Studio is a client-server system to be used for product discovery development in chemistry. Its materials simulation software is designed to predict properties and processes in organic crystalline materials and inorganic materials, and allows users to construct models of molecules and polymers.
