DRA to support Windows NT operating system

Library Systems Newsletter [December 1992]

In late 1993 or early 1994, Data Research Associates, Inc., expects to expand its workstation offerings to include support of the Windows NT operating system from Microsoft Corporation. Support of the Windows NT operating system expands Data Research's existing development plan for workstation products, which had already included the support of Digital Equipment Corporation workstations running both the Open VMS operating system and the OSF/1 operating system, as well as workstations from Sun Microsystems, Inc., IBM Corporation, and Hewlett-Packard Company running versions of the UNIX operating system.

The addition of Windows NT means that Data Research workstations, designed to operate in a client/server relationship with Data Research data bases and other remote data bases, will have the capacity to support both the easy-to-use graphical user interfaces (GUI) and the internal support of multilingual interfaces inherent to Windows NT. Client software modules running under Windows NT also provide Data Research with the opportunity to expand its hardware offerings to include hardware based on high-end Intel chips.
