Xinuos Releases New UnixWare 7 Definitive

Company commits to UnixWare customers with new capabilities and continued support

BERKELEY, Calif.--()--Xinuos™, a leading provider of solutions-based operating systems, today announced the release of UnixWare 7 Definitive, an important upgrade for SCO UnixWare 7 customers. UnixWare 7 Definitive will be the final update to the longstanding UnixWare 7 product series and provides organizations with new capabilities and continued support. The release of the Definitive versions of OpenServer 5, OpenServer 6 and UnixWare 7 come as the company prepares for the upcoming launch of OpenServer 10, the reliable and secure operating system designed for modern business.

UnixWare operating systems are the backbone for thousands of companies around the world that trust them for business-critical applications. UnixWare 1.0 was released in 1992 and has continued to evolve for customers looking for reliability, scalability and security. Xinuos is committed to supporting all of these UnixWare 7 customers with break/fix support and features for today’s workplace.

“Providing continuity for UnixWare customers was a key reason for this latest update. UnixWare 7 Definitive gives our customers robust features and support to run their existing infrastructures,” said David Meyer, Xinuos chief technology officer.

The benefits of UnixWare 7 Definitive include:

  • Security. UnixWare 7 Definitive is updated to current security standards, with critical bug fixes to help keep organizations secure.
  • More choices for applications. UnixWare 7 Definitive supports critical line-of-business applications. The web services substrate provides a foundation for creating web service-based applications and Service-Oriented Architectures on top of existing console-based applications and relational databases.
  • Virtual machine-supported hardware. With virtual machine support that includes a wide range of hardware platforms and peripherals, UnixWare 7 Definitive keeps business running. Virtual machines can be easily serviced or reconfigured for lower maintenance costs and greater productivity.


UnixWare 7 Definitive is optimized to run in a virtualized VMware environment. In addition to energy savings and lower capital expenditures, virtualization provides higher resource availability, easier scalability, increased security and improved disaster recovery.

Optimized for OpenServer 10

The Xinuos stack solution allows UnixWare 7 Definitive to run within Xinuos OpenServer 10, allowing organizations to migrate applications from UnixWare 7 Definitive to a native environment in OpenServer 10. This stack solution is available on all platforms, including VMware and Amazon Web Services (AWS), for greater flexibility.
