IBM COMPLETES SERVER STRATEGY: IBM ANNOUNCES FAMILY OF HIGH PERFORMANCE SERVERS

 IBM COMPLETES SERVER STRATEGY:
 IBM ANNOUNCES FAMILY OF HIGH PERFORMANCE SERVERS
 WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Continuing its commitment to providing the most complete line of PC local area network (LAN) servers, IBM (NYSE: IBM) today added a full-function, multiprocessing system to its server arsenal.
 The IBM Personal System/2(A) (PS/2(A)) Server 295 establishes IBM's three-tier server strategy. IBM now offers a system for every network environment, including the PS/2 Model 57, 90 and 95 for print and file server environments, the recently announced PS/2 Model 95 XP 486 50 MHz server for advanced file server environments and the new Server 295, a high performance, world-class fault tolerant system built from the bottom up to handle mission-critical client/server and database applications over large PC networks.
 "The Server 295 delivers state-of-the-art performance and reliability that rival some mid-range computers," said Paul C. Mugge, vice president, development, for Entry Systems Technology.
 "IBM now offers the most complete line of LAN servers in the industry and we will continue to expand our offerings with leading-edge server technology using these proven system platforms."
 The Server 295 is a special class of PC LAN servers that offer multiple processors, high amounts of error checking and correcting (ECC) memory, sophisticated system administration capabilities and a large quantity of industrial-strength disk storage. In addition, the Server 295 offers leading edge safe-guarding features like hot disk swapping, in which a problem disk can be replaced without shutting down the system, and redundant elements, such as dual power supplies.
 The first product to come out of an innovative and strategic development alliance between IBM and Parallan Computer, Inc., the Server 295 is maximized for overall system performance. It features dual Micro Channel buses with a total of 12 expansion slots and a high- speed Inter-Processor bus that can transmit 64-bit data at 200 megabyte (MB) per second.
 Rivaling the power and reliability of some mid-range computers, the Server 295 is an excellent database application server for such demanding applications like Lotus Notes, SQL Server, Oracle Server and IBM Extended Services with DataBase Server for OS/2.
 While the system comes standard with either an Intel 486 33 or 50 megahertz (MHz) processor module, Operating System/2(A) (OS/2) 1.3, 32 MB of ECC memory, a dual channel Small Computer Systems Interface (SCSI) adapter, and a 1.44 MB 3.5-inch diskette drive, the Server 295 can be "built-to-order" according to customer's processing requirements.
 Managing Your System
 Also announced today is a powerful system management tool for harnessing all of the processing power and storage capability of the Server 295. The new IBM Maximum Availability and Support System/2(A) (MASS/2) is a unique set of software tools that provide LAN administrators with the ability to monitor, tune, configure and control the Server 295 from on-site or remote locations. Running on a dedicated 80C186-based battery-powered Remote Maintenance Processor (RMP), MASS/2 features a graphical user interface and presents a summary of information on all major subsystems.
 Availability and Pricing
 The Server 295 will be available in October 1992. The PS/2 Server 295 version 8600-001 with a 33 MHz microprocessor costs $29,060 and the version 8600-002 with a 50 MHz microprocessor costs $34,060.
