Abstract

Abstract An hierarchically structured, centralized compute system, replacing an obsolete central DECsystem-10, can be used for all the computational tasks in chemical research, as well as for real-time data acquisition and evaluation for numerous analytical instruments, required in a large Institute. In this hierarchical system, the real-time tasks are done by local minicomputer satellites that are tailored to special requirements in the laboratories. All higher level data processing and data storage demands are covered by the central system, consisting of two VAX11/780 computers, to which all satellites as well as all user terminals are connected. The design criteria are described as well as some of the software packages developed for this system.
