A VAXcluster is a highly available and extensible configuration of VAX computers that operate as a single system. To achieve performance in a multicomputer environment, a new communications architecture, communications hardware, and distributed software were jointly designed. The software is a distributed version of the VAX/VMS operating system that uses a(More)
(RISC) and is very different from VAX [5]. It is well known that CISC architectures have performance disadvantages compared with RISC architectures [2]. The main purpose of moving the OpenVMS system to the Alpha AXP architecture was to deliver the performance advantages of RISC to OpenVMS applications. We had two important requirements besides delivering(More)
