DEC VAX 7000

This VAX 7000 Model 710 system was connected to the VAX 8650, VAX 6000/510, VAX 6000-410, and disks on the HSC90 through the CI interface. The Model 7710, code-named "Laser/Neon", was announced 1994. This system has one 137.5 MHz NVAX++ microprocessor and 384 MB RAM.

VAX 7000 Enterprise Servers are part of a family of OpenVMS-based systems designed for the rigorous demands of data center computing. They have a modular platform which enables users to improve performance in a number of different dimensions— symmetric multiprocessing, larger memory, more I/O bandwidth, greater disk capacity, and OpenVMS Cluster systems. VAX 7000 servers support additional I/O controllers, storage, user licenses, database software.

With up to 6 CPUs in a symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) configuration and up to 400 Mbytes/second of I/O, a single VAX 7000 system offers the powerful features needed in data center systems. VAX 7000 systems in OpenVMS Cluster configurations provide support for as much as 10 terabytes of data.

An optional N+1 redundant power system allows for higher system availability in the event of a power regulator failure. Systems can be configured with up to three power regulators. Optional system-level UPS (Uninterruptible Power System) capability is available to support CPU and I/O expansion cabinets.
