The Machine Room is Back!
This is the recovered Machine Room from 2005. Please don't expect wonders. The look and feel of this site is nine years old, and so is its code. Some of the functionality has been recovered while the rest of the site is modernised and restructured. Watch this space!
Top :: Companies :: Univac


Univac was the "business" computer division of Remington Rand formed by the purchase of the Eckert-Mauchly Computer Corporation in 1950.
In 1953 or 1954 Remington Rand merged their tabulating machine division in Norwalk, Connecticut, the ERA "scientific" computer division, and the Univac "business" computer division into a single division under the Univac name.
In 1955 Remington Rand merged with Sperry Corporation to become Sperry Rand. The Univac division of Remington Rand was renamed Sperry Univac.
In 1978 Sperry Rand decided to concentrate on its computing interests and unrelated divisions were sold. The company dropped the Rand from its title and reverted back to Sperry Corporation.
In 1986 Sperry Corporation was purchased by Burroughs Corporation to become Unisys.

Perhaps their best remembered machines are the Univac 1100 series.

UNIVACĀ® has been, over the years, a registered trademark of Eckert-Mauchly Computer Corporation, Remington Rand Corporation, Sperry Rand Corporation, Sperry Corporation, and Unisys Corporation.
