Unisys hardware

Unisys hardware

Is Unisys still a hardware company or is no longer producing it's own technology?, I need to know were can I find some more information about it.

Thank's for the help.

RE: Unisys hardware

Unisys is still producing hardware, and MCP is after more then 40 years still the best operatingsystem ever.
But not very many people use it, and our MCP mainframe will be phased out in the beginning of 2005 (I expect)

RE: Unisys hardware

My shop used to run MCP and switched to Windows running on multiple ES700s.

The ES7000s are far superior than anything in the market at this time. These are made by Unisys. Check them out on the Unisys web site.

MCP is not going away per se, but instead the architecture has changed a bit and the machines really are now referred to as ClearPath machines.
These machines are also still made by Unisys.

As far as I know, Unisys has a long term committment to the "MCP" platform.

Check out their web site for more details.

RE: Unisys hardware

I'm looking into Linc on various platforms, leaving it on an a-series, or going onto a Dell Server with MCP or Windows. It sounds like there are no advantages going to Windows, MCP will run on a Dell server and it appears to be a much simpler exercise (cheaper as well). There must be a reason to leave mcp and go to windows???


RE: Unisys hardware

We migrated for cost reasons.
It is cheaper to run on our ES7000s than it was to move forward from Clearpath.
In addition, our Windows servers run faster than our old Clearpath.

We also believe that running on Windows gives us a more open architecture to allow us to deploy our applications more quickly, more cost effectively and with greater functionality.
