UNISYS RE-BRANDS AQUANTA SERVERS, DE-EMPHASIZES UNIX

By CBR Staff Writer

Unisys Corp is raising the profile of its Windows NT business, and is to re-brand all its systems that have fewer that ten processors under the Aquanta brand, the name already used for its personal computer systems. Unisys will supply UnixWare on Aquanta systems where required, but the focus will be on NT. The new branding scheme includes the Advanced Logic Research Inc-based 5400 and 6400s and the overdue 61000 systems built upon Unisys’ Synchronous Coherent Memory architecture, which will now be called the Aquanta Enterprise XR6. UnixWare and Windows NT symmetrical multi-processor systems will also be supplied under the ClearPath nomenclature, the hybrid units that will offer mixed configurations of Unisys’ still incompatible 2200 and A series mainframes with Unix or NT running on co-processors. It’s unclear where Unisys’ NUMA systems, which come from Data General Corp, will live, but the company’s choice of NUMA supplier means its OEM deal with Sequent Computer Systems Inc will fizzle out in short order. The re-branding follows the recent arrival of vice president of marketing Mary Chin, who joins the company from NEC Corp.
