DEC Posts Alpha-Powered Search Site

Primed to enter the age of the Internet, mini-computer champ DEC shows off its new Alpha-powered Web search site.

MAYNARD, Massachusetts--Digital Equipment Corporation has begun an online Web search site that seeks out documents 100 times faster than others.

Powered by the company's 64-bit Alpha servers, the search site is free to Net users. According to company officials, the idea is to show off the power of the technology, not to make money.

So far the engine is searching through about 2.5 million pages each day, company officials said.
