Anyone holding their breath for the launch of Data General Corp’s Non Uniform Memory Architecture NUMA-on Pentium Pro boxes will have turned blue before now – but the launch has been put back yet again (CI Nos 3,097, 3,081). The servers are now expected to be announced in the US and Europe simultaneously in early June. The company has said before that it would rather be right first time than simply first – NUMA rival Sequent Computer Systems Corp claimed to have shipped to 50 customers by January this year. The delay this time around is said to be due to nothing more than finding a suitable date for the launch. It also looks as if the company’s ThiinLine business unit is going to be a little late with its Thiin Server and Information Server launches (CI No 3,090). These were supposed to be in Spring – but spring will have well and truly sprung by the time they see the light of day: the company is saying only the announcements will be after the June NUMA ones. Thiin Server is a no-maintenance device for serving thin clients.
