Engineers at the Boeing Commercial Airplane Group in Seattle needed a reliable scaleable database server to move from a proprietary mainframe to a client/server in a project to overhaul their aircraft manufacturing processes.

So Boeing officials chose the NUMA-Q 2000 systems from Sequent Computer Systems Inc. in Beaverton, Ore., for their Define and Control Airplane Configuration/Manufacturing Resource Management project.

"The performance, functionality, and reliability of Sequent`s Symmetry products, coupled with the knowledge and experience of their professional services organization, have been vital to our ongoing success in migrating our worldwide manufacturing operations to an open, client/server environment," says Gary Allen, vice president of Information Systems at Boeing.. "With the delivery of NUMA-Q 2000, Sequent has provided a scaleable architecture and a technology path that will be a critical element of our manufacturing operations into the next century."

The NUMA-QTM 2000, based on Sequent`s Non-Uniform Memory Access architecture, offers the manageability and availability of large single-node symmetric multi-processor systems. - J.M.
