DMS1100 vs. DMSII

DMS1100 vs. DMSII

DMS1100 vs. DMSII

I have worked with DMS1100 for years, but have just
learned of DMSII.  What is the difference?  Is knowledge
of DMS1100 relevant to DMSII?  Where can I learn more
about DMSII?


RE: DMS1100 vs. DMSII

It's many years since I worked a little with both of them, but if I remember right they are both based on CODASYL and they are both "network databases".
So skills in programmming to a CODASYL database should be helpfull on both databases.

From an operational point of view (I am in operations) the Exec-8 (or Exec-1100) and MCP/AS are very different platforms.

But again it's many years since I last worked with any of them (around 1983-1986)


RE: DMS1100 vs. DMSII

Yeah, the Univac and Burroughs stuff share very little commonality.  I doubt that you will find that any knowledge of one buys you much with the other just because they both come from Unisys now.  These platforms are Mars and Venus to each other under their skins.

That said, I'd never try to discourage a person from learning anything they can about any topic.
