GENERAL AUTOMATION IS LOOKING FOR MORE ACQUISITIONS TO ADD TO PARALLEL

By CBR Staff Writer

Following its recent acquisition of Parallel Computers, General Automation Inc has said that it will not be the last. In the short term the two companies will not merge their product lines but next year the Pick operating system will be put onto the Parallel fault-tolerant processor and become a Zebra. General Automation maintains that there will no conflict of interest in selling the two products side-by-side even with a fault-tolerant Pick implementation because Pick is superior in dealing with data and Unix is better for number crunching, the company says. Additionally General Automation says that it has no plans to switch horses to Unix, but will remain predominantly a Pick-popper.
