The early big servers were VAX based. In fact, they were mostly just
rebadged. RCS/RI has an Intergraph VAX 8550. It has some really strange
custom hardware in the disk controllers - something about these things
could do searches thru files on the disks for specific graphics entities
(for CAD) without bothering the processor. Odd.

CDC was rebadging IRIS 3000 machines as Cyber 910s.
