And Stratus fault-tolerant arch-rival Tandem Computers Inc has received an order for a facsimile communications service network from the big Recruit publishing and data processing services company (it’s called Recruit because it followed the idea pioneered by Computer Weekly here and launched a magazine aimed specifically at the recruitment market): the contract is for eight Non-Stop VLX processors to form the basis of a store-and forward facsimile service using high-speed digital lines, marketing the service to companies on the basis of major cost savings over using dial-up lines (the difficulty of operating a Japanese language typewriter means that the majority of business messages are hand-scripted, hence the widespread use and rapid state of advancement of facsimile technology in Japan); Tandem machines are already used as the basis for a value-added network service operated by Nomura Research Institute and some big software companies.
