Control Data Corp says that a new release of its proprietary NOS/VE operating system, due out in December, will extend the connectivity options available to its dwindling band of Cyber mainframe users. The new release will include the Sun Microsystems Network File System, new archiving and retrieval facilities, and enhanced electronic mail. The File System is already available on CDC’s Silicon Graphics-based Cyber 910 workstations, and will enable workstation users to gain access to the mass storage capacity of the Cyber mainframes. Working with the new Archive/VE facility, designed for large amounts of data used in such applications as weather forecasting and petroleum exploration – workstation users will be able to back up and extend local storage. TCP/IP with an interface to Mail/VE message handling, an X400 interface, and support for VM/SP in addition to the previously supported MVS will also be included. Network File System on Cyber mainframes will cost from $3,000 to $6,000.
