VAX 10000 series
The VAX 10000 series were internally essentially the same machines as the VAX 7000 series, just with different packaging (number of cabinets) and configurations (including an uninterruptible power supply); simply a larger configuration. They were thus high-end VAX systems, the last VAXen produced.
Only one model was produced, the Model 6x0, with "x" ranging from 1 to 4, depending on the number of CPUs in the system.
They shared much of their cabinetry and components with the Alpha-based 10000 AXP series systems as well as the VAX 7000 series. The intention was that customers could purchase the VAX systems they were used to, but then perform a relatively simple in-cabinet upgrade, replacing the VAX KA7A CPU modules with Alpha CPU ones, as they became comfortable with Alpha-based systems.
