Wyse Technology Inc has launched two new 80386-based multi-user systems: the WY-3216-150T for up to 12 users; and the WY-3216-85T for up to eight users. The machines have 150Mb or 85Mb ESDI disk drives, with the 150T priced at $8,600, and the 85T at $8,000 previous Wyse machines had a top capacity of 40Mb mass storage. Both models include 60Mb cartridge tape, 1Mb main memory, and floppy disk drive. Wyse is giving its resellers the option of adding Santa Cruz Operation’s Xenix operating system, which it licensed from SCO back in January, and according to Wyse marketing vice-president Jeff Hudson, the new systems are the second step in the company’s bid to become a major player in the multi-user marketplace. Wyse claimed fifth place among suppliers of 80386-based systems in 1987, according to figures from International Data Corp.
