Influential newsletter Shannon knows Compaq is saying that Q will introduce its most powerful and expandable Himalaya server so far. According to Terry Shannon, veteran DEC/Compaq analyst, Compaq will roll out the NonStop Himalaya S72000, which will support between four and 16 MIPS chips. He says that this will offer 20 per cent more performance than the existing S70000 system at the same price as the S72000. Clusters will be able to link over 4,000 chips and up to three Pb (petabytes) of storage. It will be less than $200,000 for an entry level configuration and will include items including the Kernel OS, the NonStop SQL database and the Storage Management Foundation software. Shannon also confirms in the latest issue of his excellent newletter that Compaq, through a New York legal firm, has instructed him to insert the words "not authorised by, affiliated with, or endorsed by Compaq Computer Corporation" on his newsletter. We find this more than a tad heavy handed. For example, here in the UK, there are titles like IBM Today or the old DEC User that never got the legal treatment. Ah well. ® RegiStreak K2 The word Himalaya is a Sanskrit compound noun and means "Abode of Snow".
