Four DPS-8 models added to CP large-scale computers
Honeywell has added four DPS-8 largescale host computers to its Control Program 6 multiuser systems as part of a program to expand the growth path for current users of the CP-V and CP-6 operating systems. Accommodating up to 120 simultaneous users, the models added are the DPS 8/62C, the DPS 8/44C in single- and dual-processor configurations, and DPS 8/20C.
The DPS 8/62C is a 120-user, single-processor system field-upgradable to a DPS 8/70C, the company's most powerful computer. The freestanding central system comprises one CPU, one system control unit, and one l/O multiplexer with 35 channel function slots expandable to 54 slots. A typical configuration includes a Datanet 8C front-end network processor with 120 communications lines, a 1200-lpm and a 1600-lpm printer, a 1050-cpm card reader, four 200-ips tape drives, and four disk drives.
The DPS 8/44C central system consists of one or two CPUs, a system control unit, and one l/O multiplexer with 19 channel function slots. The single-processor, 40-user DPS 8/44C in a typical configuration includes a Datanet 8C front-end network processor with 40 lines, a 1200-lpm printer, a 500-cpm card reader, two 200-ips tape drives, and a disk drive.
The dual-processor, 80-user configuration of the DPS 8/44C typically comprises a Datanet 8C front-end network processor with 80 lines, a 1600-lpm printer, a 500-cpm card reader, three 200-ips tape drives, and two disk units.
The DPS 8/20C is a 20-user system fieldupgradable to a DPS 8/44C. Designed for use either as an entry-level, freestanding CP-6 system or as a remote CP-6 satellite in conjunction with larger host systems, the DPS 8/20C in typical configuration includes a Datanet 8C front-end network processor with 20 lines, a 1200-lpm printer, a 500-cpm card reader, a 200-ips tape drive, and two disk units.
The central systems for all of the host computers include user storage, an integrated communications processor based on Datanet 8 hardware, remote diagnostic processor, cache memory, and operator console.
In typical configurations, the host computers are priced at Sl,681,287 for the DPS 8/62C; $615,744 for the single-processor DPS 8/44C; $ 1,003,038 for the dual-processor DPS 8/44C; and S496.723 for the DPS 8/20C.
