Abstract

Planning and design considerations are presented for a full scale high performance heterogeneous computer network coupled by a 100 MBPS optical fiber ring bus. The design goals of this system are efficient resource sharing and improved RAS. All common resources, such as processors, peripheral devices, terminals and file devices, are directly connected to the ring bus, instead of directly to a processor. This network includes two or more large computers of different types, a guide subsystem to manage common resources and to control their usage, peripheral and terminal control subsystems, and a gateway processor.
