Multiprise

A family of System/390 entry-level to medium-scale mainframes from IBM that use microprocessor-based CMOS technology. They house the control units, channels and hard disks in the same cabinet similar to midrange servers. The first Multiprise models were introduced in 1996. See IBM mainframes.

ShopKo uses EMC's Enterprise Storage Platform (ESP) software to enable data from IBM RS/6000 servers, IBM RS/6000 SP Massively Parallel Processors, and IBM CMOS mainframes to reside on a single EMC system.
BUSINESS WIRE)--May 20, 1996--Best Power's UNITY/I(TM) Single-Phase 5KW model uninterruptible power system (UPS) has been made available as an orderable option with IBM's new system 390 CMOS mainframes, the S/390 Parallel Enterprise Servers.
This level of I/O throughput also rivals that of the newest, top-of-the-line IBM CMOS mainframes.
As a result of Sun's new architecture, the Enterprise servers offer ten times more I/O performance than HP's fastest and largest system, the HP9000 T520, and more than 16 times the I/O throughput of IBM's top of the line SMP server, the RS/6000 R30; they even rival the I/O throughput of the newest, top-of-the-line IBM CMOS mainframes that cost in the many millions of dollars for a similar configuration.
