Hewlett Packard is planning a proprietary minicomputer based on Intel's Merced processor, the company said yesterday.
It intends to port its proprietary MPE operating system to Merced as customers continue to support the 26-year old software. Other than the software, the Merced MPE systems will be the same as the HP 9000 Unix servers.
Like Digital with its VMS operating system, HP has actually seen continued sales of its legacy software over the last year, among those customers with large proprietary database applications. To cover the time gap until Merced's release HP will ship two new HP 3000 boxes with new PA-Risc processor versions.
