IBM TAPS LOCUS FOR KEY AUX UNIX FEATURES, TCF FILE SYSTEM

By CBR Staff Writer

Locus Computing Corp, Santa Monica, California reports that several of the key products offered for use with IBM’s AIX family of Unix implementations, including the new AIX/370 (CI No 889) have been licensed from Locus. IBM has licensed the Locus PC Interface and Merge 386 products for supporting MS-DOS micros in a Unix environment, as well as the PC-Xsight windowing product. PC-Xsight is being offered as IBM X Window for IBM PC-DOS and provides Unix-compatible windows for multiple users of AIX systems. Locus says it was also been involved with the port and development of the operating environment for AIX-370 and AIX PS/2, notably design and development of the Transparent Computing Facility, TCF, distributed operating system software, enabling users and programmers to make use of networks of PS/2s, 9370s, 4300 and 3090 computers together in the same manner as if they were a single, simple Unix workstation, without needing to know the location or nature of the machine where the desired programs and data reside. TCF was derived from the distributed Unix system developed as a US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency-funded project at the University of California at Los Angeles. The TCF design team went on to form Locus Computing Corp.
