An application-oriented multiprocessing system, Part II: Design characteristics of the 9020 system

by G. R. Blakeney, L. F. Cudney, C. R. Eickhorn
The equipment that comprises the IBM 9020 multiprocessing system is described, emphasizing capabilities not appearing in the standard SYSTEM/360 line. System characteristics are related to availability requirements for program-controlled reconfiguration capabilities. With these capabilities, subsystems can be formed from system elements as the need arises. Other discussed functional capabilities center on recovery by program control, shared storage, and malfunction alerting.
