Summary
  • IBM 3090 mainframes are ranked behind Amdahl and the older IBM 3083 in figures compiled by Reliability Research Inc over the last six months. The report, called R+, is statistical, with interpretation left to the reader. While some of the recording standards are questionable, R+ is still considered the most accurate measurement of reliability, and it is the only independent survey in the IBM-compatible market. IBM still leads in tape drive reliability figures, but ranks behind Amdahl and National Advanced Systems (NAS) in disk drive reliability. Tape drives from Aspen Peripherals had reliability figures six times better than IBM in their first month in R+ statistics.
