one of the things that serial has tended to do is have pair of unidirectional asyncronous connections ... which has helped with various kinds of command and...
other activity from long ago and far away in the 2-tier-3-tier evolution. SJR had a project to build experimental clustered vm-cms system, in part in support of other research activity:
do you know any good vm people who might be interested in coming to s.j. research to work on vm related projects??? There are openings for 3 people this year & several more opening up next year. Currently looking at installing 3 148s on the same floor with shared dasd, hyperchannel, & tp. Looking at distributed computing, distributed data base, reliable computing, cp file system, and networking. There are probably several other "sins" which will be thrown in under the umbrella once it gets going.
The 3 148s are for experimental work in computer science.

True, but irrelevant to the subject (why was the 8088 chosen) at hand. The 80286 laying a couple of years in the future was not likely to be a deciding point. And now...
Will try and get together a project description & job description. There will be several groups of people working on-with the machines & system. R* is a (distributed) system R follow on (VM-CMS relational data base).
System D is a distributed data base system currently using multiple series 1 with shared dasd & some special hardware. They are now interested to moving to 370 (& vm).
Several people are also interested working on "single system" image for VM (ala Hone systems) but with shared spool additions, "paging" out all control blocks & paging them back in on a different CPU (this work includes interest from STL & probably working with groups outside of SJR). Also a group looking at a CP file system (PAM with cp dynamically allocating blocks).

lot of past posts mentioning system-r, original relational-sql implementation, done on vm-cms platform
misc. past posts mentioning "pam" &-or memory mapped file system
misc. past posts mentioning HONE
misc. past posts mentioning hsdt &-or hyperchannel
later we were to do ha-cmp product
