Ing C Olivetti SpA yesterday took advantage of its European distribution agreement with Multiflow Computer Inc, Branford, Connecticut to launch the company’s new Trace 14/200 minisupercomputer unveiled at Uniforum (CI No 873). Aimed at scientific, engineering, industrial and research applications, the new machine is being handled by Olivetti’s Delfi SpA group, situated in Milan. Although Olivetti’s strengths are most obvious in the commercial marketplace, it currently bases its engineering offerings on its PE workstation series: these are adapted Olivetti personals with specialist 32-bit graphics processors, which are connected to an AT&T 3B or an Olivetti LSX server. The addition of the Trace machine would enable Olivetti to compete for highly compute-intensive scientific and engineering applications, but appears to leave a gap in its range for high-power workstations. Multiflow has an existing distributor agreement in West Germany with GEI Rechnersysteme GmbH, based in Aachen, which remains the exclusive distributor for that country.
