Data General is hoping its new entry level Aviion server takes flight in the market for workgroup and departmental applications.

The AV 3600 supports up to four 200-MHz Pentium Pro processors with 512KB cache per processor. Four operating systems will be available: Windows NT, Data General's own DG/UX Unix, Netware 4.1 and SMP, and SCO UnixWare 2.1.

Other features include 4:1 memory interleave for faster data transfer and an expandable PCI subsystem that supports up to 15 I/O slots. Included in the package is a Clarion RAID disk array and a system diagnostic board to aid information systems managers in problem detection.

The AV 3600 will be available in volume starting in September at an estimated street price of under $12,000 for a base configuration with one 200-MHz Pentium Pro processor and 64MB of RAM.
