Dynix has clearly moved to the front rank of library automation vendors. Not only was the Dynix exhibit hall booth crowded, but officers of the company reported that sales are well ahead of last year's pace, with projections for sales worldwide now well over $45 million for the 1990 calendar year.
More important, the development pace is quickening. Inventorying and reserve book room are now in general release; media booking and homebound are in beta testing; journal citation is in alpha testing; and information and referral is in prototype. The modules (and sub-modules) will be priced as low as $3,000-$5,000 each.
The IBM 6000 and the MIPS line of RISC machines are now the company's principal hardware platforms; although Digital VAX, Hewlett-Packard, Sequoia, and Sequent are regularly bid in special situations. The Ultimate line continues to be supported.
