DEC has followed the launch last month of a special server configuration of the MicroVAX 2000 (CI No 1,043) with a high capacity file server for support of large networks of workstations, this time using its VAX 6210 and 6220 mid-range systems as the base hardware. The VAX Fileserver 6200 series provides up to 2.5Gb disk storage and high performance input output for VMS, Ultrix, and mixed workstation environments. Systems are pre-configured with software to allow file service and network management, and come with tape drive, system console and networking hardware and software. VMS-based servers include VMS/Ultrix Connection with Sun’s Network File System support for Unix and Ultrix workstations, VAXcluster software, and VMS services for MS-DOS. Ultrix-based servers come with a two-user licence for centralised file management, network support and a server licence: they support Unix workstations via NFS and TCP/IP, with DECnet/Ultrix software for communications to DECnet net works. Prices start from UKP212,000 for VMS and UKP183,000 for Ultrix versions: conversions to full time sharing VAX systems are available. DEC has also followed its agreement for Ashton-Tate Inc to develop custom of its products for the DEC VMS environment by signing Lotus Development Corp to a similar pact with products to use DECwindows. No further details were provided.
