NCR Corp duly launched three of the levels in its seven-layer Intel-based computing strategy yesterday: the 3320, 3340 and 3345 uniprocessors ranging from UKP3,000 to UKP36,000 from the powerful desktop level; the 3445 and 3450 servers, from UKP12,000 to UKP50,000; and the 3550 symmetric multi-processor, running Unix V.4, from UKP63,000 to UKP500,000: details as in CI No 1,513. And NCR assured the press that it had held detailed discussions with the users of its V, I and U Series systems about migration; V systems users can take advantage of NCR’s Union product, launched last year; I Series users must wait for the results of the company’s Galaxy project, which will enable I Series applications to run on the new 3000 Series machines; while U Series Tower users will receive migration aids and tools to help with the move from Unix V.2 and V.3 up to V.4. NCR claimed that it had over 35,000 software packages ready to run on its new 3000 series; namely 25,000 MS-DOS packages, 1,000 OS/2, 6,500 SCO Unix, 350 Unix V.4, and another 2,300 database applications for V.4; the most for any new computer series ever, the firm claimed.
