Bull SA and Honeywell Bull Inc are adding mid-range models to the DPS 7000 family of mid-range mainframes in a simultaneous worldwide announcement. The new 7000/72, 82 and 92 multiprocessors fit between the 7000/10 to /50 announced last April, and the top-end 7/1X07 models from NEC – not announced in the UK. The new multiprocessor models are designed for transaction-intensive applications and have redundant architecture for a measure of fault-tolerance. The 72 and 82 are dual processors and the 92 is a four-processor system derived from the new CMOS processor designed by Bull for the smaller DPS7000 models. The 72 is capable of supporting more than 600 concurrent users and handling over 61,000 transactions per hour while the 92 supports up to 2,500 users and can handle over 122,000 transactions per hour, more than twice that of the model 50. The models 72 and 82 can also be upgraded on-site to the power and capacity of the next higher model. UK processor prices start at UKP212,000 for the 72, rising to UKP540,000 for the 92.
