New Top-of-the-Line Unisys ClearPath Libra System Boosts Performance For Mission-Critical Applications By Up To 20 Percent

CHICAGO, Sept. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) today announced the ClearPath Libra 8290 enterprise server – the most powerful ClearPath Libra system the company has ever delivered. Unisys announced the new system at the Universe client-centered event being held here.

The Intel processor-based ClearPath Libra 8290 delivers computing performance up to 20 percent greater than that of the largest CMOS-based ClearPath Libra 800 system, the previous top of the line in the family. In addition, the new system more than triples the input/output performance of its predecessors.*

These enhancements provide clients with greater power and capacity to handle their mission-critical applications and address new business challenges while protecting their investment in ClearPath technology.

Based on Intel® Xeon® processors, the high-end ClearPath Libra 8290 is the company's first Intel processor-based ClearPath platform to outperform predecessor systems that are based on proprietary CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) processor technology.

The ClearPath Libra 8290 also marks the latest step in Unisys' ongoing evolution of the ClearPath family to an open architecture based on Intel processors.

The ClearPath Libra 8290 runs the powerful Unisys MCP operating environment. Clients can continue using mission-critical ClearPath applications without change as they transition from one generation of ClearPath systems to another and modernize applications without changing the core software.

"This new ClearPath Libra 8290 system provides our largest clients with the performance, scalability, reliability and availability they need to run their most mission-critical applications, and to do so on an Intel-based platform from Unisys," said Bill Maclean, vice president, ClearPath Portfolio Management, Unisys. "We are extremely proud of this achievement and look forward to continuing to push the envelope of innovation with our Intel-based architecture to provide organizations with the highest levels of computing performance."

"We commend Unisys for its achievement with the ClearPath Libra 8290," said Shannon Poulin, vice president of the Datacenter and Connected Systems Group and General Manager of the Datacenter Marketing Group at Intel Corporation. "The ClearPath Libra 8290 proves what Intel® Xeon® processor technology can do in order for enterprises to meet their most demanding mission-critical computing tasks. We look forward to continuing our collaboration with Unisys in offering enterprise clients new industry-leading server options for their organizations."

Advanced System Design Boosts Security, Availability and Efficiency

The ClearPath Libra 8290 makes significant advances in system resiliency and availability. It features a fully redundant design, providing exceptional levels of system availability for core business applications.
