Global Dosimetry Solutions, Inc. UNIX System Highlighted During SCO 

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Dosimetry Solutions, 
Inc. (GDS), a division of Mirion Technologies, today announced that 
Hewlett Packard (HP) and SCO presented the new UNIX high availability 
system deployed at GDS during the SCO Forum 2006, the premier UNIX 
and application mobility conference, which was held in Las Vegas. The 
GDS system is one of only two in the world selected by the Executives 
at HP to be presented at SCO Forum.
GDS requires 7/24 operations with laboratory and manufacturing 
operations. In order to meet the growing demands for greater speeds 
in data delivery and support for different protocols, it was 
determined a platform based around HP DL 580 G3, MSA 1500 SAN, HP 
Storage Works 4/8 Fiber Switch, and 100/1000 Network Cards with 
UnixWare 7.1.4 selected for the OS platform, would best meet the 
network requirements.

"We were pleased to have our system highlighted during SCO Forum 
2006," stated Malcolm Smith, VP of Information Technology of GDS. 
"The new system criteria was dependent on a UNIX platform with a 
design emphasis around high availability, increased performance and 
capacity. We achieved this reliability and scalability with HP 
equipment and UnixWare."

"SCO was pleased to have been selected in partnership with HP as the 
supplier for GDS's network requirements. SCO has a history of 
providing highly innovative and reliable solutions to companies like 
GDS," stated Sandy Gupta, CTO of SCO. "UnixWare 7.1.4 supports the 
newest industry standard hardware platforms and peripherals and 
contains even more of the high performance, scalability and 
reliability features that our customers have come to expect from
