Paper Abstract

This paper describes a simple low cost FDDI network design that eliminates the need for expensive brouters (bridges or routers) to interconnect lower speed LANs to the dual ring FDDI backbone. The multiple servers attached to the dual ring backbone provide a highly fault tolerant parallel processing capability approaching that of a mainframe. This is dubbed `MegaServer Architecture.' Design of the total integrated network in MegaServer Environment is described.
