For example, one university in the Washington, D.C, area charges outside users according to a two-factor formula based on how many "VAXcluster CPU minutes" and "Disk Kilo-block days" they use.
An NFS File Server was added to VAX 8800 software in stress analysis so that the Hewlett-Packard and Apollo workstations could use the VAXcluster's shared disk drives for data storage.
The Jnet software running on the university's now-four-machine VAXcluster is virtually transparent to most users.

The IBM Sysplex and original Digital VAXcluster typify this design.
However, we have recently accomplished our goals by linking six VAXstation 2000s and a MicroVAX II into a VAXcluster. Within this cluster, the MicroVAX II serves as a central node and is the only machine that needs a copy of the system software and the Tutor software.
This trend toward generalization in SAN systems was also seen more than 15 years ago in Digital Equipment Corp.'s VAXclusters, which first used a proprietary physical interconnect (VAX-CI), then moved to the more standard and more general-purpose Ethernet [6].
The most relevant paper, which inspired the best of the algorithms that we propose, describes the adaptive locking algorithm used by Digitars Rdb/VMS system for VAXClusters [Joshi 1991].
Integrated networks, such as Locus [45], Apollo Domain [30], Newcastle Connection [12], VAXclusters [28], and Eden [2], provide transparent access to network computing or storage facilities.
