Omnidex in the Early Days
The Omnidex product line began on Hewlett-Packard’s HP-3000 line of mini-computers in 1981. At that time, the HP-3000 was a 16-bit minicomputer, running the MPE operating system, which included HP’s IMAGE database. IMAGE was a 2-level network model that provided high operational efficiency and performance, especially given the very limited hardware capabilities of that era. Despite CPU speeds and memory sizes that would be considered intolerable by today’s standards, many HP-3000 deployments supported 50 or more concurrent users, performing on-line transaction processing in applications such as point of sale, a testimony to the lean efficiency of the OS, DBMS, and application software of that era.
Today, Omnidex remains an essential part of IMAGE/SQL applications all over the world. We continue to support Omnidex on the HP-3000, and we will continue to support it into the foreseeable future.
