Data General Increases MV/6000 memory

Library Systems Newsletter [November 1982]


The memory capacity of the Data General MV/6000 computer has been increased to a new maximum of 4 Mbytes from 2 Mbytes. In addition the price of memory has been reduced by up to 68 percent. This means that libraries which are interested in DataPhase Systems Inc.'s ALIS software can opt to use a large DC mini rather than the more expensive Tandem system. A single MV/6000 can handle up to 125 terminals -- depending on the activity mix more than twice the number which can be accommodated on a single Tandem CPU. It is not currently possible to use a dual MV/6000 configuration because of limitations in the MIIS operating system.
