About Digital UNIX: Digital UNIX sales grew by 51% last year, faster than the industry's UNIX growth. (Overall, high-end UNIX server sales gained 5% last year and midrange UNIX servers grew 34%.) Digital was the first to offer 64-bit architecture, which has caused Sun, HP and Silicon Graphics to follow their lead. The combination of Digital UNIX and Alpha technology provides extremely high system performance. Analysts say that UNIX has a good three to five year technology lead over Windows NT due to its scalability, reliability, and clustering ability.
