Digitask finds the most cost-effective approach to upgrading system

This client was interested in a multiprocessor with expanded memory for his VAX 7000 system. Before Digitask agreed to the hardware upgrade, we initiated a review of the clients need for it. After agreeing with the client, we evaluated the impact of the hardware upgrade on the system as a whole.

Digitask’s evaluation of the hardware upgrade yielded the following: the Operating System and hardware would have to be upgraded. The magnitude of this effort was simply not cost effective. Thus, after an exhaustive review, we decided that it was more beneficial to port to a new Alpha platform with its inherent future expandability rather than to remain on older VAX technology.
