ICL, as expected (CI No 1,420) yesterday entered the file server market with the launch of a 25MHz 80486-based machine at UKP10,000 – UKP1,000 cheaper than Compaq Computer’s 80386-based SystemPro, although the latter has 600Mb of disk against 200Mb on the DRS 95. The EISA bus machine is rated at 12 MIPS and has 4Mb of memory. The floor standing, cube-shaped machine and can also be used as a high-power personal computer. As a file server on a local area network, it supports the MS OS/2 Lan Manager or Novell NetWare environments. ICL is also positioning the DRS 95 as a communications gateway on a personal computer local network and promises later this year to offer support for Oslan, X25 and SNA communications.
