It has taken a grindingly long time, but Data General Corp really does now look as if it can start thinking about walking in the sun once more, with first fiscal quarter profits jumping and turnover climbing 6%. President and chief executive Ronald Skates commented that The first quarter results, particularly the continuing growth of our product revenues, are another solid affirmation of our strategic direction, adding that Data General is again a growing company. The success of our AViiON server and CLARiiON storage product lines has allowed us to become a significant player in two fast- growing markets. The AViiON server line generated 15% more business than in last year’s first quarter, with its newer Pentium Pro-based systems representing more than 50% of total AViiON revenues for the first time. In addition to our continuing strong Unix business, AViiON revenues are being fuelled by the growing demand for systems and servers that run the Windows NT Server, he added. The CLARiiON storage surpassed $100m in quarterly revenues for the first time, he noted.
